Towkio Brings His “Symphony” to ‘The Tonight Show’
Backed by a live band, Towkio spit his frantic bars as lights flashed behind him. The rapper was then joined by singer Teddy Jackson, who turned the "Symphony" performance into a dance party, complete with Towkio running to the crowd.
On Feb. 23, Towkio released his debut project. The 13-track album is executive produced by Rick Rubin and Lido and features guest appearances from Vic Mensa, SZA, Teddy Jackson, Grace Weber and Njomza.
To celebrate the release of WWW., Towkio launched his album from space. Strapped into a helium balloon, the Windy City artist traveled more than 90,000 feet into the sky. Surrounded only by two cameras and a physical copy of the album, the rapper had a turbulent descent back to Earth but made it to land safely.
"WE DID IT!!! WORDS CAN NOT EXPLAIN HOW I FEEL RN," he wrote on Instagram. "THANK YOU TO EVERYONE IN MY LIFE I LOVE ALL OF YOU! THANKYOU GOD! I LOVE U. THANK YOU FOR ALL UR PRAYERS CUZ THAT WAS THE SCARIEST/ MOST BEAUTIFUL THING IN MY LIFE. THIS IS ALL GODS ALIGNMENT. WHAT I SEEN TODAY WILL CHANGE MY LIFE FOREVER.
