South Coast Music Group will release Toosii’s Poetic Pain on September 18. The new project follows the breakout Platinum Heart (Deluxe), which charted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums tally and entered the Billboard 200 following its release in May 2020. By July, Toosii had shot into the top 10 of Rolling Stone’s “Breakthrough 25” chart, which tracks the
month’s fastest-rising artists. Platinum Heart (Deluxe) has now amassed over 200 million combined global streams.
Recently, Toosii shared a new single from Poetic Pain – “Right Now,” a high-energy track fueled by his rapid-fire delivery and high-drama beats. He recorded the song at his North Carolina home studio with producers Ant Chamberlain (YFN Lucci, Lil Durk) and Twysted Genius (Lil Baby).
Toosii says, “I love ‘Right Now’ because it makes you feel like if an athlete played it before the game, he’d probably get 30 points right out of the gate.”
Fans who pre-save Poetic Pain will instantly receive “Right Now” plus the recently released “Poetic Pain” and “Love Cycle” (with Summer Walker). Toosii’s new line of merchandise – which includes Poetic Pain items – can be found exclusively HERE.
Poetic Pain further reveals Toosii’s gift for matching introspective lyrics with unforgettable hooks. The project exudes a harder-hitting and more dynamic sound than its predecessor, a fitting backdrop to Toosii’s unapologetic truth-telling. At the same time, Poetic Pain unfolds with a more hopeful tone than Platinum Heart, reflecting the triumphs he has experienced following a long period of struggle.
The 20-year-old rapper is an entirely self-driven and strong-minded artist, fiercely dedicated to following his instincts and one-of-a-kind vision. 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), the Syracuse, New York native has won acclaim for his melodic flow and autobiographical storytelling, endlessly demonstrating his willingness to pour unguarded emotion into each song.
Flaunt predicted, “Toosii is about to take over the rap game.” HipHopDX said, “[Platinum Heart] was characterized by Toosii’s melodic flow and driven by his hit, ‘Red Lights.’” Complex noted, “Rising North Carolina rapper Toosii continues momentum with ‘5 Stars,’…[which] sees Toosii contrast his aspirations against his roots.” A compelling live performer, Toosii has supported such artists as DaBaby, Summer Walker, Polo G, Moneybagg Yo, Money Man, NBA Young Boy, Yung Bleu, City Girls and more.
