Tone Eyeful is a name that hip-hop enthusiasts should remember. This talented artist from New Haven is blowing up the hip-hop scene with his catchy blend of smooth R&B, killer beats, and clever rhymes. Tone’s not your average rapper, though – he’s always pushing boundaries and showing off his versatility as a songwriter and performer. So it’s no wonder he’s got a massive fanbase that loves his fresh and diverse sound.

In 2020, Tone released his EP Colors, a conscious, spirited album that touched on the times. The album was well-received by both fans and critics, which motivated him to release two more projects in 2022 – Black Roses, a bar-for-bar rap album featuring battle rap artist Jus Cuz, and Long Way From The Eastside, a melodic hip hop/R&B album featuring R&B sensation Norman Perry. And that’s not all – Tone has more projects in the works for 2023.

When asked about his motivation to pursue music, Tone shared, “I was motivated to build my brand because while I was using music, writing my feelings and thoughts on records as an outlet, other people were relating to what I had to say. That motivated me further to start taking this seriously. Music got me through some of the hardest times of my life and was also the soundtrack to some of the best. If I can reach out to people in a way that they can digest and relate to through my gift, then that’s a whole other gift within itself.”

From a tender age, Tone’s existence has been steeped in music. He would listen, record, and compose music, with a knack for writing that excelled in his schooling. His father would often take him to the mixtape spots around Connecticut and Queens, NY, where he was exposed to the musical genius of DJ Clue, DJ Big Mike, Craig G, WhooKid, Kay Slay, Kid Capri, and other greats. Ironically, his first words were the catchy hook ‘Hey Ho’ from Naughty By Nature’s classic hit record ‘Hip Hop Hooray.’ Even during his high school and college years, Tone was already recording and releasing songs, music videos, and projects, and was fortunate enough to open for renowned artists such as Nas, French Montana, N.O.R.E., Meek Mill, Ty Dolla, and tour with Currensy and Chris Webby.

Tone’s music has a broad appeal, attracting a diverse range of listeners. He caters to both hip-hop aficionados of all ages and women who appreciate his R&B and soulful tunes that explore themes of love and relationships. Tone draws inspiration from an eclectic mix of musical greats, including Nas, Notorious BIG, 50 Cent, NWA, as well as contemporary stars such as Drake, Benny the Butcher, Westside Boogie, and Russ.

In addition to his thriving music career, Tone is also involved in the health industry, running a successful Seamoss business that helps people achieve their wellness objectives. He’s also collaborating with a group of designers to launch a new brand on the side. However, his ultimate ambition is to become an A&R professional, scouting fresh musical talent and assisting artists in telling their stories through their art.

Tone Eyeful’s future looks bright. In five to ten years, Tone sees himself as a superstar artist, jet-setting across the globe and sharing his beats with adoring fans. With his dedication and undeniable skills in hip-hop, Tone is bound to make a splash that will rock the music world.
