When asked to describe himself in a few words, the charismatic rapper known as Uptown Tone has plenty to say. " Lyrically inclined, quick witted, and just a slick talker in general so that translates into my rhymes." Obviously confidence in himself and his musical ability is something he doesn't lack. Raised on the streets of Paterson, NJ, Tone picked up on hip hop culture at a very early age. " I started listening to rap when i was about 4. Shout to my big cousin for putting me up on that. I mean other than that it was everywhere in the hood. That's all you're accustomed to hearing so it becomes part of your everyday life." And a major part of his everyday life is what it's become now. With a mix of God given talent and dedication to his craft we are sure to see and hear more from the self-proclaimed king of NJ. " From mixtapes to visuals to shows I'm about to be the next big thing. Like i always say progress is a process. There's only one way to the top and there's no short cuts." With that mentality and the hunger to show the world that he's the best, we're sure that Tone will be at the top in no time.
