Toyotomi Hideyoshi was regarded as a “great unifier” of Japan. He began as a peasant but eventually rose to become a powerful leader and warrior. Toyotomi is also a 17-year-old hip-hop artist from Perth. He makes music with his friends and writes raps in his bedroom. Sometimes they spend too much on cool clothes and sometimes they eat a lot of unhealthy food. He’s been rapping since he was real young; 12-years-old. His style, flow, content and delivery has matured greatly since and he is now renowned amongst the new-wave hip-hop crowd within Perth. He’s been making cool-ass music videos and he’s been doing cool-ass shows at The Bird, YMCA HQ, The Rosemount (supporting Stones Throw), The Good Shepherd, Jack Rabbit Slim’s (supporting Baro) and Falls Festival. I won’t mince words with you guys; the kid is a rising star and he’ll be headlining festivals and tours before he can legally buy a drink. There is no-one like this in Perth right now; an effortless combination of youth, style and charisma.
