Toki Wright I say this all the time but, I feel so great being from Minnesota because Minneapolis is a mad music machine that keeps churning out great homeland talent.

As many of you know, Toki Wright released his debut LP on Rhymesayers Entertainment this last Tuesday. He was gracious enough to drop his first single entitled “The Feeling” which features Brother Ali. Big Bad Brother Ali also produced the beat on this track, which I may add is fire. Both emcees spit 16 some nice bars, and leave me wanting to hear more. Make sure you go out and buy Toki’s album A Different Mirror out on Rhymesayers now.
