Tone -a sound with a distinctive quality . - the general quality or character of something as an indicator of the attitude or view of the person who produced it Today many recording artist struggle to find their on niche or identity within their music. Furthermore, various artist have difficulty conveying the emotion and the conviction needed to connect deeply with their target audience. However, budding star Antony “Tone” Robinson’s main goal as an artist to make the distinct connection with hip hop fans across the nation. “ I want to take the game to the next level. I want to be able to go to any city in the world whether its Atlanta, New York, L.A. or Paris and have people feel and respect my music.” Tone’s desire to connect with people an music developed while growing up in the Scottdale community on Atlanta’s eastside. Like so many he found refuge in music and began rapping and recording in his uncle’s studio in the 8th grade. But around the age of 17 he stopped taking music serious and drifted away from it and into streets. After getting in trouble Tone was sent to live with his father. His respect for his father’s wisdom motivated him to move his life in a different direction away from the streets and back towards music. “I was more concerned with other things. I didn’t understand the talent I have, but now that I understand I want to make my talent work for me to take me to another level in life.” Tone describes his music as both innovative and controversial. He feels that it is crucial that he expressing himself in the best way that conveys his thoughts and emotions on a particular subject. Tone’s music is the embodiment of life and lust. With songs like “Paper” and “Pop it like Soda” he flamboyantly decrees that his music will be heavily present in the clubs. Furthermore he admits to having a particular fondness for connecting with women through his music. In the song “Bet She Like Dat”, he vividly and confidently depicts pleasuring women in ways that he believes they would be most fond of. But Tone’s ultimate goal is to bring a higher level of respect to the city of Atlanta for credible music and lyricism. “My goal is to expand the view of the window people see hip-hop through. I want people to be able to respect what the artist is saying and enjoy the music, I feel I’m the type of artist that can make a song that will have all the women dancing and men reciting the versus. I have a lot of respect for Jay-z and T.I because there music has a commercial sound but they are still respected lyricist.” With so many artist coming out of the south today there is little room for unbelievable stories and “fad music”. For a new artist to reach the upper echelon of stars, there music contain substance and a certain level of quality. It is essential that their music have a distinguishable sound, its very own Tone.
