Listen to His Debut Mixtape TKEY HERE
Rising hip-hop star Lil Tony releases the striking video for his new single “Tried Me” via Priority Records. Jam-packed with fresh energy and trippy, dazzling imagery, the video is the perfect companion piece to the audacious, swagger-filled track. The unforgettable visualizer arrives on the heels of the 17-year-old’s bombastic mixtape TKEY.
“Must not see diamonds, must not see Lil Tony f****n’ shining,” the rising artist spits over Dezeioun’s trap beats and ominous melody. “I go through shit too, I thug it out — I ain’t f****n’ whining.” From day one, Tony hasn’t shied away from speaking his mind and this is no exception. That defiant attitude also shines through in the just-released visual.
In the surreal visual, the teenage rapper has a conversation with himself — literally. Through the magic of technology, Lil Tony takes notes as another Lil Tony shares his thoughts. It’s a striking and unforgettable way to introduce the fiery track. The Atlanta upstart then chills with his homie in a stairwell and waves around a gun to prove he means business.
Lil Tony may be a newcomer in the rap game, but you’d never know from his confident presence and dizzying lyricism. The arrival of his mixtape TKEY marks the culmination of years of honing his craft and building momentum in his hometown. With the arrival of his “Tried Me” video, the young performer showcases the full extent of his artist and underlines the fact that he’s only just getting started.
