TOOSII × LATTO DROP FEEL-GOOD VIDEO – 5’5

Syracuse-born, North Carolina-raised rapper Toosii returns today with a nostalgic video for his hit single, “5’5” featuring Latto. The track is a standout from Toosii’s new mixtape, Thank You For Believing (The Manifestation), out now via South Coast Music Group/Capitol Records. The visual finds Toosii getting romantic and dancing at a throwback house party-all baggy pants, bucket hats, and hoop earrings. It’s a cheerful clip for the feel-good rap track. Watch the video for “5’5” here.

Toosii’s latest ode to love finds the rapper moving from a quick flow to melodic bars. The video for “5’5” – directed by Joan Pabon, produced by Andreas Garcia and shot in Atlanta – stars Toosii at a bumping house party when his “angel” makes her way in. The two shoot pool, take turns at the keg, and find some chemistry on the dancefloor. Latto makes an appearance for her stellar verse, and together, the two take the party outside where they can more freely show off their moves.

“5’5” follows the video for “spin music” with Fivio Foreign, the first single from Thank You For Believing (The Manifestation), the deluxe version of Toosii’s acclaimed 2021 mixtape. The “spin music” visual mirrors the song’s kinetic energy, jumping between scenes of ATVs, parties, and bedrooms in a dizzying array of lenses, camera angles, and special effects. VIBE wrote that the track “finds the two New Yorkers delivering what could be the city’s latest drill anthem.”

The “5’5” video continues Toosii’s unbelievable run from a grinding upstart to becoming a globally celebrated rapper. Earlier this year, he surpassed one billion streams, proof his music is resonating. And now, with a proven ability to consistently churn out diverse, vivid, and affecting music, Toosii shows no signs of slowing down. His charisma and screen presence are obvious in the video for “5’5,” marking another stunning performance from one of rap’s most exciting young artists.

Toosii – f**k marry kill

Today, the Syracuse-born, North Carolina-raised rapper Toosii shares a luxurious video for “f**k marry kill,” a single from his latest project Thank You For Believing, out now via South Coast Music Group/Capitol Records. The visual – which follows a similarly lush clip for “Red Die” – finds the rising rap star embracing opulence, surrounded by beautiful women, glimmering jewels, and an inviting pool. Watch here.

The “f**k marry kill” video offers Toosii a chance to celebrate his recent successes as he lives large in a lavish mansion, surrounded by women in bikinis. It’s a fitting pairing for the track’s floating melodies and effortless cool.

The video is appropriately celebratory given that Toosii has recently marked some huge career milestones. His relentless work ethic and undeniable run of vivid, emotional tracks earned him a spot in the 2021 XXL Freshman Class. It’s a coveted honor for any rapper, and it speaks to the growing acclaim for Toosii across the industry. Thank You For Believing garnered praise from critics and tastemakers like The Fader, Complex, The Source, UPROXX, HotNewHipHop, and more.

Tickets are on sale here for the Thank You for Believing tour – Toosii’s first-ever U.S. headline outing. He will also perform at numerous festivals, including Rolling Loud, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits.

Toosii also recently surpassed one billion combined global streams across all of his songs, proof that his music is resonating with listeners too. Between the release of Thank You For Believing, the staggering success of its singles, and his appearance on XXL’s 2021 Freshman Class, Toosii is already well on his way to becoming a superstar. But he’ll be the first to admit that all of this hustle is just the beginning.

With the summer officially back in action, DaBaby is ready to heat things with his new anthem, “Ball If I Want To.” For his directorial debut, Baby pieces together a larger-than-life visual with video producer Gemini Vision.

Not only did he conquer the Billboard Hot 100 with his chart-topping single “ROCKSTAR,” but he remained atop of the elusive summit for a smoldering seven weeks. His 2020 proved to be a momentous one, as he secured 32 Hot 100 hits along with his second No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with Blame It on BabyDua Lipa and DaBaby’s smash collaboration “Levitating” remains an active player on the Billboard’s Hot 100, as it currently sits at No. 3 on the charts.

He is now the proud owner of plaques for “ROCKSTAR” (5X Platinum), “Suge” (4X Platinum), “BOP” (3X Platinum), “VIBEZ” (2X Platinum), “TOES” (2X Platinum), “INTRO” (Platinum), “Goin Baby” (Platinum), and ‘Baby Sitter” (Platinum).

On his powerful new single, ”what it cost,” Toosii reflects on his roots and his current reality. The Syracuse-born, Raleigh-based artist, who is closing in on one billion combined global streams across all of his songs, details his journey from a lost kid surrounded by tragedy to a national sensation full of promise on the introspective, stripped-down track. Download/stream ”what it cost” HERE. The song is from his new mixtape, Thank You For Believing, set for May 7 release via South Coast Music Group/Capitol Records.

My mom is a real hard worker. That’s where my hustle comes from. She taught me to never quit,” says Toosii.

While many rags-to-riches stories have been told, the official video for “what it cost” is a rags-versus-riches story, following Toosii as he transverses two starkly different worlds. Directed by Joan Pabon, who helmed the official videos for ”back together” and ”Reminiscing,” the clip shines a light on inequalities and economic disparities and the tangible and intangible costs of living in a poverty-stricken home versus a wealthy household. The video is bookended by real talk from Toosii about his life, touching on the loss of his grandfather, the times he’s nearly died himself and his drive to be there for the loved ones that are depending on him. “Everyday bro, I wake up, I gotta go hard bro. Can’t go back to being homeless,” says Toosii. View the video HERE.

Earlier this month, Toosii earned widespread praise for ”back together,” which also appears on Thank You For Believing. XXL named it one of the “best new songs” of the week. “Toosii skyrocketed into the mainstream in 2020. Now, he’s looking to continue this ascension with “back together,” observed Complex. ”Toosii [is] looking to own 2021,The harmonic love fest [‘back together’] taps into [Toosii’s] R&B sensibilities while still showcasing his penchant for nimble bars,” said HipHopDXHotNewHipHop noted, ”[‘back together’] plays much more like a ballad than anything else and it works to perfection, it’s a nice piece of self-reflection that will make any fan want to tap in for more.” View the official video for ”back together” HERE. Fans who pre-save / pre-order Thank You For Believing HERE will instantly receive ”what it cost” and “back together.”

Propelled by his gift for drenching real lyrics in rich emotion, Toosii has proven himself to be one of rap’s most relatable rising stars. Naming him an artist to watch, Billboard said, “Toosii is coming for the crown.” On Thank You For Believing, he tells jarringly honest tales of street life and lost love, addressing the good times and the bad, the glow-up and the dark days that came before. Toosii’s career has been percolating in North Carolina for years, but he found immediate, staggering success in February 2020 on the strength of Platinum Heart. The album hit No. 1 on Billboards Heatseekers Albums chart and launched Toosii into the top 10 of Rolling Stone’s Breakthrough 25 chart.

Toosii quickly followed up those achievements with Poetic Pain in September 2020, which debuted in the top 20 of the Billboard 200. He recently earned a Gold record for his top 10 Urban radio hit, “Love Cycle.” Toosii has earned a devoted audience, including 2.4 million Instagram followers. In 2020, Toosii collaborated with DaBaby, who’s tipped him as “the hottest new emerging artist.”

New Music Video for Toosii – Love Cycle x Summer Walker

In the official video for “Love Cycle” (with Summer Walker), Toosii plays an operator on the Love Cycle Hotline who gets the call of his life from none other than Summer Walker. Edgar Esteves (Chris Brown, Pedro Capo x Alicia Keys x Farruko), Toosii’s frequent collaborator, directed the video, skillfully capturing both the sensuality and the humor of the situation. View HERE.

Today, Toosii shared news of his signing to Capitol Records, which will release his music in conjunction with South Coast Music Group (SCMG), the North Carolina-based label that stunned the world with the 2019 release of DaBaby’s Baby on Baby.

“I couldn’t see myself anywhere else. It’s like it was fate, “explains Toosii.” To meet Jeff three years ago as an A&R and then, three years later, he’s the president of Capitol Records and I’m the next big thing, I couldn’t see it no other way. I’m happy to be a part of the FAMILY.”

“Toosii possesses that rare combination of creativity, intelligence, and ambition you only find in the greats,” says Jeff Vaughn, President, Capitol Records.”We are excited to welcome him and our partners Arnold Taylor and South Coast Music Group to Capitol Records.”

Arnold Taylor, CEO, South Coast Music Group, recalls, “The first time I listened to Toosii I knew he was a Megastar, which is why I did not hesitate signing him to South Coast Music Group. Knowing Jeff Vaughn’s history of developing artists, I knew Capitol Records would be the right partner for Toosii and South Coast Music Group!!!”

Toosii x Sinners Prayer

TOOSII RELEASES VIDEO FOR SINNERS PRAYER Poetic Pain Out Now

Watch Sinners Prayer Video HERE

Listen to Poetic Pain HERE

Today, South Coast Music Group star Toosii releases the third video, Sinners Prayer, from his new project, Poetic Pain, which dropped Friday. The cinematic visual finds Toosiialone on a barren street, creating a stark backdrop for the charisma that the Raleigh, NC, rapper brings to his music. Similarly, his contrasting all-black outfit and copious drip highlight the track’s dark mood and the lyrics’ defiant rags-to-riches proclamations. Watch the video for Sinners Prayer HERE and stream Poetic Pain HERE.

Directed by Toosii’s frequent collaborator Edgar Esteves (Chris Brown, Pedro Capo x Alicia Keys x Farruko) and shot in Los Angeles at night, the video for Sinners Prayer is another haunting, stirring statement from one of rap’s most exciting young voices. Shining in the glow of streetlights, Toosii walks us through his world. He’s alone but doesn’t need anybody else. Sinners Prayer sets the emotional stakes for Poetic Pain, which Toosii says is rooted in both the trauma that he’s experienced, and the cathartic release music gives him. My pain is a work of art, he says. It’s equivalent to poetry. It’s a beautiful thing and it describes me.

Following the recent release of the Right Now track and video, Sinners Prayer and its visual double down on Toosii’s quest for redemption and personal growth. They also reaffirm the bold vision he introduced on his last mixtape, Platinum Heart. That set has since amassed over 200 million global streams, hit No. 1 on Billboardߣs Heatseekers Albums chart, and launched Toosii into the top 10 of Rolling Stone’s Breakthrough 25 chart.

Born in Syracuse, NY, and raised in Raleigh, NC, Toosii has won acclaim for his poignant, melodic flow and autobiographical storytelling since signing with South Coast Music Group (the label that catalyzed DaBaby’s rise as one of music’s biggest new stars in recent years). On Sinners Prayer, Toosii faces the camera with zero distractions, demonstrating his willingness to pour out unguarded emotion in order to offer some insight into his world.
