Tooty definitely has my attention! His latest track “Stepping Stone” off of his sophomore album “Suicidal Thoughts” has taken the game to another degree. His lyricism is raw, real, and relatable as he talks about life, struggle, passion, pain, and perception. As if the track itself wasn’t powerful enough, he hits us a telling music video that features the streets of Chicago and an overlay of Tupac’s poignant speech. The music video is beautifully directed with wonderful cinematography. “Stepping Stone” is a track you need to listen to over and over and the message will still be as compelling and meaningful, if not more. Tooty is a hip-hop artist you need to familiarize yourself with. I guarantee you will see hip-hop for what it is; real, influential, and progressive.
