RAPPER TOKEN HITS THE ROAD ON CANADIAN TOUR
TOUR KICKS OFF TONIGHT IN VANCOUVER
NEW VIDEO FOR DOOZY RELEASED
MIXTAPE ERASER SHAVINGS OUT NOW
Toronto, ON – April 5, 2017 – Rap prodigy, Token, is thrilled to share the tracks off his mixtape, Eraser Shavings, with audiences across Canada this month. Kicking off today in Vancouver, BC, the Massachusetts native hits the road with shows from coast to coast (full details below). Check out Token’s latest video for his track, Doozy, while you wait for him to hit your town.
Doozy can be found on Token’s recent mixtape, Eraser Shavings, which was released in the fall of 2016. Although he was rhyming for years, it was after releasing the video No Sucka MCs on YouTube that Token gained national attention. The video quickly amassed 2.7 million views, and also prompted superstar Mark Wahlberg to take to Twitter and proclaim Token his new favorite rapper.
No Sucka MCs also prompted iconic hip-hop tastemaker, Sway Calloway, to invite Token to spit on his influential Sway in the Morning SiriusXM show. “I rehearsed day and night for Sway,” Token reveals. “I wanted it flawless. And I actually prepared about 11 minutes of material, roughly 250 bars. Then, literally the day before, I got the news that I would have about half that time. I had to chop 11 minutes down to like 6, basically overnight. It was nerve-wracking.” Sway’s cohost, Tracy G, actually broke down in tears with his verse — the video of which has garnered over a million views in a single 24-hour period, and totals more than 6.7 million views to date. The internet was set aflame by an apparent rap prodigy.
At only 17, Token is already many things to many people. What’s singular is his drive: “I have a lofty goal; I want to make a living off my passion. Music is what helped me get confidence. Music is my time to be invincible. Even though I’m young, my childhood already feels like a different life, because I’m looking back and writing on it. I’m in love with writing and I’m not going to pigeonhole myself.”
Stay tuned for more from Token in 2017 and don’t miss him on the road this month!
