Real raw energy is hard to come by in the mainstream market as artists have become accustomed to showcasing illicit content that doesn’t reach the global audience network. We have key cities including New York, Atlanta, Los Angels, Miami, and Chicago where artists are actively breaking into music with their own sounds and positive, yet memorable narratives across the world. Recently, Tokyo Montana and Noel5ive reached our editors as they have been trending non-stop recently with multiple freestyle videos across the net that are catchy and as some say, they are true “bangers!”
The excitement that this young couple brings is truly special. Luckily, we caught them before their next wave of touring to ask them a few questions about their career, the responses they have been gaining and the success they can expect to see shortly as trending rappers out of the hottest city on the market.
How did you come up with the names Tokyo Montana and Noel5ive?
We were literally sitting on the couch listening to some of our freestyle videos and decided it was time to put a name on what we were ready to start showcasing to the world. It was something that we knew would be major and very influential to our next steps as artists and creators. Our names are really our inner-bodies or what some claim to be alter ego’s. They explain the way we are and the way we mesh with each other. The rage, raw energy and elusive vibes that we give can be felt through our names and transferred through our music.
Has it been a smooth road?
It depends on what you call smooth! We are appreciative of everything we have experienced thus far and the people we have met. The music business can be a prize and sometimes a lesson depending on who you are working with but we learn from it all.
What can we expect next?
We are about to hit the road for our fans to see us live in-person. That’s always fun! Between releasing new music and catching red-eye flights to different cities, our focus is to stay active with all of the people that have shown us love these past few months. It’s been nothing short of amazing!
