Published Sep 01, 2016Gearing up to release his new LP The Ivy League, Toronto MC Tona has shared a taste of what's to come from the release with "Red Eye."
Produced by Slakah da Beatchild, the rapper exhibits some clever wordplay over the dark, percussive production alongside fellow Toronto MC Fixaveli.
"The song came out of a freestyle that was inspired by some Two Oceans red wine," Tona explained in a statement. "Everybody had left the studio thinking nothing of it, but a few months later, a vocalist who had been present during the session came back reciting the freestyle like it was a full blown song she had heard on the radio. I couldn't ignore the signs at this point, and decided to actually turn it into a song."
