South Coast Music Group’s Toosii releases his new title track and music video for his upcoming EP “Poetic Pain”.
Directed by NORATCHETSS, finds Toosii penning a love letter to the woman who shattered his heart and reminiscing about the special moments they shared. Like nearly all of his music to date, “Poetic Pain” was self-recorded at Toosii’s home in Raleigh, NC – a purposely solitary approach he considers essential to his self-expression. “I really just love making music, so all I ever do is record,” he says.
While deeply personal, Toosii wrote the smooth and soulful track during a spontaneous livestream session with fans. Toosii recalls, “I was on live with the fans and they liked the beat I was playing, so I had them tell me what the beat made them feel, and we made the song from there.”
Closing out the month of August, Toosii released “Love Cycle” featuring Summer Walker, from his Platinum Heart (Deluxe) mixtape. A mixtape which peaked at number two on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums tally and entered the Billboard 200 in June.
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.
