Tonyworldwide is a man on a mission.
In life, one of the most important indicators of someone having achieved success is work ethic. When talking to the South African native, Tonyworldwide, it was clear that this sentiment was shared. He is certainly an individual that takes his music seriously and looks to achieve his mark within the rap industry. The 21-year-old hip-hop musician has a new album, Destined For This, and we had the unique opportunity of interviewing him. Check out the full interview below, along with a link to his music, and his bio:
Hey Tonyworldwide, so first what motivated you to become a rapper?
What Motivated me to become a rapper was the passion and love I have for music and most importantly my family, I am doing all this just to see my family in a better state, so in conclusion I’m driven by passion and working towards making my family happy
That’s amazing. We admire your reason for doing music.
Could you tell us a little more about where you’re from and also how that plays a role in your music?
I’m from South Africa , living in a city called Johannesburg it’s hard to really make it in South Africa because there’s so many artists or rather rappers trying to make it into the game, and rappers that are already in the game “established” find it hard to bring up upcoming artists
We understand where you’re coming from. It seems like these days it is more difficult to make it, especially with so many artists out there. Overall, we hope this gives you the type of exposure you need to make it to the next level.
Could you also let us know what type of artists you look up to or that have inspired you to become who you are today?
Thank you very much, I know this will take me a level higher by getting this exposure , The type of artist I look up to internationally is Lil Wayne reason being is that his constancy is amazing and the way he plays around with words always brings out a punchline and metaphor or simile and that’s what I always try bringing out in my raps , And locally ,a rapper named AKA inspires me simply because he don’t care about any bad comments by media or random haters he is constantly looking to make great music and he constantly gets top charted even with so much hate around him … And that’s exactly who I am , I just want to release good music and ignore bad comments.
Those are certainly some great rappers, and for good reasons. In order to make it, it’s important to stay positive. Finally, what is the one piece of advice that you would give to other artists who are looking to make it in the rap industry?
The advice I would give is stay focused , never lose your focus … Write down your goals on a piece of paper or on your phone and read it daily …. Never give up , always keep working even though things may not be looking so good but keep working , all you need is one foot in the game and that will only happen if you push yourself to the max!
Hard work beats talent!
Well said, we truly agree with your message. It takes hard work and dedication to make it to the top.
Now, those were all the questions that we wanted to ask. Is there anything further that you would like to add?
Can I share a bit of my BIO/ and my latest mixtape links and a bit about it?
Yes, we would be interested in that.
