Preston Oshita, better known by his stage name Towkio just released his third full-length project titled ‘Community Service 2’. The 23-year-old runs with Chicago’s SaveMoney clique, the collective headed by Roc Nation’s Vic Mensa, independent darling Chance The Rapper, and an equally strong suite of producers. It’s on Towkio’s latest offering, Community Service 2, where he gets his own time in the 2016 lime. He charges through the Mr. Carmack and Kenny Segal produced “Gang With Me” with a mob mentality and Vic Mensa by his side, shouting out Hip Hop royalty and their wifeys before finally reaching a crescendo and spouting “Team too strong, don’t play with me!”
He unapologetically plasters that confidence across the canvas of the EP’s seven tracks, especially on the outro “Work 4 Me.” Sliding through a turbulent barrage of drums and guitars from Smoko Ono, Mr. Carmack, and Peter Cottontale, Towkio flexes his entrepreneurial muscle with the assuredness of a seasoned vet, and it’s evident that the more he works on himself, the more he’ll have others wanting to work with him. It’s the confidence and skill he oozes into each track that has people like Rick Rubin collabing with him on his first full-length LP. Check out the EP below and make sure to cop it on iTunes.
