MadeinTYO, Georgia's sensational hip hop artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Paradise Rock Club!
MadeinTYO (birth name Malcolm Jamaal Davis) was born in Atlanta (Georgia) in 1992 but due to his father being in the navy, he moved a lot between California, Virginia, Texas, and Tokyo. He was inspired to become a rapper by his brother Rizzy (now a successful rapper in his own right) who would record songs in his bedroom when they were kids. His stage name comes from his teenage years living in Yokosuka (a part of Tokyo) and he began uploading tracks to SoundCloud. Despite the crowded Atlanta hip hop scene, he was able to make niche for himself among contemporaries like Future, Young Thug, Migos, and he released his debut single (Uber Everywhere) in August 2015. It hit #10 on Billboards’ Hot R&B/Hip Hop songs chart, spawned a remix by fellow rapper and record producer Travis Scott, and it’s been viewed over 37 million times on YouTube. Malcom followed it up with his debut mixtape (You Are Forgiven) in April 2016 and he’s also collaborated with artists such as Gio Dee, Metro Boomin, Royce Rizzy, Kitty Cash, and 2 Chainz. His single featuring the latter (I Want) has been remixed by A$AP Mob and his debut EP (Thank You, Mr. Tokyo) came out in August this year.
