With hundreds of hopefuls stepping into the industry every year, it is not a stretch to say that creating unique, distinctive music is a growing struggle for these aspiring musicians. This is not the case, however, for the up-and-coming artist T$WIM.
Making a grand and memorable entrance in the business through his eclectic and brand new sound, the young artist quickly attracts music executives and fans worldwide.
Hailing from Connecticut and born of National Football League (NFL) nobility, T$WIM is the rapper and songwriter to watch this year. Already hosting an unmatched drive and boundless potential as a child, the budding artist is eager to push past his limits and sees no hurdle big enough to stop his momentum.
When he was younger, T$WIM bore witness to his father’s greatness. The hip-hop virtuoso is the son of the well-loved Rahshon Spikes, widely respected as a pride of the Silver City and an unmatched threat on the football field by his opponents. Sitting front-and-center to his father’s games and seeing history being written aroused dedication and a passion for succeeding within T$WIM that has seamlessly translated to his sound.
After years of hard work and stitching notes and words, he finally made his debut. On February 28, 2020, he released his first single, “Let Me Know,” on all platforms. His hard-hitting beats and witty, powerful rhymes instantly captured listeners’ attention – generating thousands of listens on his social media channels. It was the start he needed.
Through his refreshing rap track, T$WIM drew a loyal crowd in the hundreds and counting. To quell the growing demand for his unique voice, the rising artist subsequently released powerful songs that have swum their way into must-listen and head-bang-inducing playlists.
On May 5, 2020, the brilliant musician dropped “BOMBAY,” the single that further solidified his career and reputation as one-of-a-kind in the industry. Features came in droves, and T$WIM was on interviews.
A particular question that was often asked by reports was regarding the muse behind his media. To that, the artist coolly answers, “I was inspired by the new generation of music mixed with the old generation of music such as Jay-Z, Nas, Biggie, Big L, etc., and just mixed my own sound with the way I was inspired to make and create it.”
His latest single, “Tango,” released last June 22, 2020, proved his words true – offering an outstanding and flawless blend of his idols’ distinct sounds with a hint of something new that is wholly T$ WIM’s. With three songs under his belt, dedicated fans can hardly wait for an official album.
Keeping things under wraps, for now, the multi-talented musician is only sharing his goal of seeing himself on Billboards in half a decade. At the rate that he’s going and with a devoted and growing following, there seems to be nothing standing in the way of his inevitable success.
Let loose and listen to the emerging artist’s unique and impactful sound on popular music streaming platforms such as YouTube, YouTube Music, Deezer, Spotify, and Apple Music. To stay updated on upcoming release dates and future ventures, T$WIM is available on Instagram.
