On the rise Hip Hop artist Toosii has released the video for “Met In LA,” a celebratory postscript to the enormous impact of his new project, Poetic Pain. The neon-tinged visual follows Toosii as he enjoys a weekend in L.A., taking in the city’s skyline before hopping on the jet back to NC.
Directed by Drew Carroll, “Met In LA” (Listen Here) offers a different angle on the charismatic rapper, with Toosii describing a breezy, whirlwind affair that showcases his amorous side.
Following the release of his “Love Cycle” with Summer Walker, “Met in LA” furthers an undeniable hot streak for Toosii, which began with the February release Platinum Heart. That set has since amassed over 200 million global streams, hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart, and launched Toosii into the top 10 of Rolling Stone’s Breakthrough 25 chart.
Poetic Pain displayed Toosii’s cathartic approach to rap, but here he’s sharing his success. It’s hard to find a shot in the video where the man’s infectious grin doesn’t flash across the screen. The album has garnered over 90 million global streams since its late September release and debuting in the top 20 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Back on Wednesday (September 30), 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.
