Tony Da Kidd is a South Carolina-born, LA resident. Lately, he has been spitting rhymes that freely express his pains and his struggles in a bid to show people a better way. Losing many friends and family to the temptations of the streets, he has witnessed the low side of life in all its forms and still manages to dream big.
“Being raised by a single mom, I saw my mom struggle. Luckily, she always made sure I was good,” Tony Da Kidd said in a recent interview. “That’s why most of my songs are about struggle or pain, it’s because I’ve witnessed so much. I lost friends and family to the streets, that’s life.”
Inspired by some of the biggest names in the game including 50 Cent, J. Cole, Meek Mill, Kendrick Lamar, and Big Krit, he got his first taste of fame in Japan in 2014. Dropping a track that did so well that he started to get gigs in the land of the rising sun, he was determined to pursue a career in music and put the accelerator to the floor.
