Towkio Goes Intergalactic in New “Morning View” Video
Chicago rapper Towkio is taking his inundation with the outer limits to all new heights. For his latest offering, the WWW. rapper ascends beyond the stratosphere to cope with love lost in his new visual for his track “Morning View” featuring SZA.
Shot at the Los Angeles YouTube Space, the visual is a breathtaking emotional tale that seems to draw on the 2009 cult classic film Moon. The Todd Barrett production finds the rhymer suited in space gear as he travels around the galaxy aimlessly in an attempt to cope with heartbreak. Over the course of his journey, we see Towkio continue to reminisce over his former lover through a series of photos and videos.
At one point, the "2 Da Moon" artist even turns to prescription drugs to remedy his heartache as he ingests a painkiller of some sort. Throughout the visual, he seems dejected and by the time the video ends, we know why: it's been nearly a year since he has received any word or correspondence from his lady on Earth.
Back in February, Towkio set out on a mission to fly 100,000 feet into the air to deliver his debut album, WWW., and the Chicago native has made good on his promise. Since the album's release in March, the 24-year-old has continued to push the limits of his craft by inking a deal with Republic Records and taking his talents international with his WIDE WAV. tour. The multi-city show is set to kick things off next month.
