Rising hip-hop sensation Tony Da Kidd is about to show music fans what it means to elevate his music as he gets ready to release his upcoming album called And Beyond. His new album is currently available for pre-save on Spotify and pre-add on Apple Music. The artist describes his latest project as his way of going the distance and even beyond it to elevate his music and continue to entertain his fans.
“It’s about me, my feelings, and other emotions that people can relate to,” Tony Da Kidd shared. “I put a little bit of everything on this tape for everyone. It’s about life and the way we feel, how we move, and why we do the things we do. All that and then a vibe, mix it all together now.”
The LA-based hip-hop artist, who was born with the first name Anthony, has always enjoyed music as far back as he can remember. The turning point for his passion happened in 2014 while he was in Japan. While there, he dropped a song on SoundCloud, and everything just started to fall into place after it generated a remarkable response from music enthusiasts. Realizing his own potential to be great as an artist, Tony Da Kidd immediately took hold of the opportunity and never let it go.
Among his releases, the song “Change” is one of his favorites. Mostly, his songs talk about raw and relatable human emotions, from a painful life experience to common struggles people face in the family, workplace, and community. One of his greatest inspirations in life is his mother, who worked tirelessly to be able to give him a good life, one that did not rely on the businesses that happened on the streets.
“Growing up, I got by but never really had everything I wanted,” Tony Da Kidd explained. “I had everything that I needed. All of that makes me realize that I missed out on having a lot. Being raised by a single mom, I saw my Mom struggle, but she always made sure I was good. That’s why most of my songs are about struggle or pain—it’s because I’ve witnessed so much. I lost friends and family on the streets. That’s life. I could talk forever about this situation, but we don’t have all day.”
Throughout the course of his rising music career, Tony Da Kidd has released several crowd favorites, including “Gotta Say,” “Black Man,” “Over Yet,” and “Miss Me?.” Last year, he released the album titled Somewhere Writing. It contained ten remarkable singles such as the undeniable hit “Getting Better,” “Still Cruising,” “W.Y.A.” featuring Kah Kang, “Keep It a Stack,” “H.O.M.S.,” “Do Me,” “Too Hot,” “Good Demeanor” featuring Roy Audio, “A Lot on My Mind,” and “Who Say?”
Tony Da Kidd’s musical style is a combination of Big Krit and Joey Badass with a little bit of Rick Ross, according to some of his closest friends. His musical influences over the years include 50 Cent, J. Cole, Meek Mill, Kendrick Lamar, and Big Krit.
Back in 2017, he won the Upcoming Artist Award at an underground show in Atlanta, and although it was not as big as the Grammy’s, he is mighty proud to be recognized by fierce hip-hop fans as extremely promising. The upcoming release of his latest project is expected to be another awe-inspiring combination of his lyrical and rapping talents and even beyond.
