Stream Towkio’s ‘.Wav Theory’ Mixtape
Buzzing Chicago artist Towkio drops off his .Wav Theory mixtape featuring Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, the Social Experiment and Kaytranada. The SaveMoney member displays a sound that is quite different from Chicago's drill music scene and more in line with Chance's Acid Rap project. With the dance-infused sounds of Kaytranada, impressive raps from Towkio, Mensa and Chance, plus an appearance from the Social Experiment, .Wav Theory has a little bit of everything for fans of the next generation of Chicago stars. Get familiar with Towkio now before it's too late.
To accompany the project, Towkio also dropped a visual for the title track. The visually stunning clip features fast-lapse shots of landmark shots in Chicago including the shores of Lake Michigan, the Chicago skyline and the Chicago River. Check it out below.
The SaveMoney crew sat down with XXL back in Feb. and during the discussion, Towkio broke down what makes the crew so intriguing. "I don’t necessarily think it’s a new wave at all because there’s been people like us that’s existed this whole time," he explained. "The fact that we, for the most part—everyone is a smart individual. So we were able to get the things we want and be able to avoid bad situations. We know how to finesse and shit. I don’t think that it’s a new wave but it’s something that’s being seen now, we’re the kids that was out here. We didn’t necessarily have to take full part in gang banging and all that shit because that shit is really lame, you know what I mean? It’s just people with their head on better, you know? I don’t think it’s a new thing but it’s new to everyone else."
