$toney – “BRB” ft. Mark Parker

Published

on

Recently $toney released his new video for his well received song “BRB”.  The uniquely bouncy record has an appeal all its own as $toney steps out from behind the boards after being an engineer for nearly 10 years.  After debuting his “BRB” single on Elevator, the video has a chance to be his biggest video yet surpassing 25K this past weekend.


From the fan favorites like “2 Phones” and “Counterfeit,” from his project Blood on My Heart to this new loose track “BRB,” $toney is proving his worth on the Pittsburgh rap scene and nationwide despite his humble beginnings.


“I really dig this record and it has a unique sound. In this industry you have to bring some type of uniqueness to the game and it still has that popular modern bounce to it, so I think it’s going to do really well with the fans,” $toney said.  “I think it’s just that good ride and smoke music. You can party to it, you can ride to it and it’s just good music that can get people hyped even though its chill.”


The track is the follow up to his project Blood On My Heart which was released in February, produced entirely by McCoy and was dedicated to Jimmy Wopo who $toney worked with frequently.

After the loss of Jimmy Wopo, his close friend, frequent collaborator and recently signed Taylor Gang artist the Pittsburgh Hip-Hop community was in shock. $toney took the loss just as tough as anyone having spent many late nights in the studio with Wopo recording, engineering and perfecting their craft as he describes in a IG tribute to his friend.

“It was a dedication to Jimmy Wopo,”  $toney said of his album title Blood On My Heart, “I produced and engineered all the music that he was putting out and. Im just glad he made the impact that he did and that people are still listening to him.”

Having started his musical career while bored in class at the age of 15 , he began recording the raps on his phone and posting them online and he’s continued to grow and develop his craft recording and engineering at higher quality studios.  With a smoked out vibe and a riding quality that all great albums posses, $toney makes it clear that his mood music goes well beyond the speakers whether in the car or at home.

2x Grammy Award Winning, groundbreaking iconic music group, and Hip Hop pioneers Arrested Development recently released their new album ‘Don’t Fight Your Demons.”  The 16-track album features a selection of eclectic musicians including Kuf Knotz, Skyy High, Christine Elise, O’hene Savant, Rambo, Let The Dirt Say Amen, Fro Magnum Man, MRK SX, and is executively produced by Speech for Vagabond Productions and Configa for Configaration Records.

“Becoming” is the first video off the album and truly sets the tone for what fans can expect from the album. It’s infectious beats along with dually clapping and striking drums with vacillating piano keys are soul-shaking, while the intricate storytelling and bold images are eye awakening.

Speech shares his vow to become the best he can be and transcends us back to age nine, teen years, and young adulthood. His vivid memories expose domestic violence, his journey into the streets with hopes of earning respect, and harsh lessons behind bars.  Upon his release, a new devout way of thinking takes over by means of glorified sermons.

The captivating chorus and invigorating energy from the group ignite a sense of freedom and elation that needs to be celebrated. Watch “Becoming” and stream ‘Don’t Fight Your Demons’ below.

“Becoming” is dedicated to Anthony Johnston (from the film 16 Bars)

The group assures fans and listeners this is no hit or miss album.  Each track is distinct in style, flow, and vibe, with influential wordplay and infectious soundscapes. They breakdown and take apart worldly injustices, the current state of racism, grueling masks of politics, and on the flip side offer empowering gems on how to overcome and rise through. The production throughout the entire album channels a continuous kaleidoscope of invigorating bass, soul, funk, worldly tones, and even innovative cadences ear-pleasing to a younger generation of music connoisseurs. ‘Don’t Fight Your Demons’ ideally serves as a “how-to” handbook brimming with incomparable lyricism, storytelling, and cognizant awareness delivered in a fashion only Arrested Development can carry through.
