Hear Three New Madeintyo Songs
The first two songs—"Long Socks" and "Bookoo Baby"—are produced by K Backwood, a.k.a. K Swisha, and feature Madeintyo's typical mellow confidence and catchy adlibs. The last track is a little more aggressive and it's produced by DWN2EARTH. On this track, he mentions his album True's World is coming this summer.
As we mentioned earlier, Madeintyo is riding a big wave of momentum following his selection as a 2017 XXL Freshman. Speaking with us during the photo shoot for the cover, the 25-year-old explained what being on the XXL Freshman cover meant for his career.
“People dream of this moment and as an artist, as a rapper, even if today you don’t do nothing else after this, this is a staple in hip-hop history to be on the XXL Freshman cover, just off grip,” said Madeintyo, who recently appeared on a track with Roy Woods.
He continues, “From right now, every move that I make, I’m geeked for my son to understand what happened or what was going on. Like, ‘My dad was on this cover.’ This is one of those things that you’re excited about. My fans rocked with me. This is the best timing. If you have something, if you’re a star, you are going to shine when the light hits you.”
Madeintyo's looking to carry his good vibes into his set at today's XXL Freshman Show in Los Angeles tonight at 8 p.m. PST. Maybe he'll perform his new tracks? Check out all three of them just below.
