Originally from Bronx, New York, Toshi Cortez moved upstate with his family at an early age.  Changing his influences and his environment and being exposed to genres like rock, metal and EDM, Toshi took an extreme liking to very different sounds and very different personalities.  In turn, he himself wanted to be different. In 2014, Toshi  started writing and recording music after a split with his ex, as he needed an outlet to express himself. An outcast with no friends and a tough relationship with family, he rapped about everything he thought about over dark trap beats.  When he found Chief Keef and came across his strange style, he was in love and started to record over strange happy sounding beats with a dark message.  The results were well-received locally and birthed the “racer” style people know and love today. It’s hard to be in the music scene and not know of Toshi and his very weird and “out-there” style.  You can catch him performing in Saratoga Springs, NY in his signature Vlone hoodie, with a very positive attitude towards every other act in the building.
