GET TO KNOW: Tone Levels

Having already turned out the impactful LPs 'Woke Don't Mean Broke' and 'I Am A Great Man' in recent months, Atlanta-based rapper Tone Levels is continuing his prolific streak with the impactful new album 'God Is Here'.

Capturing more of that broad and progressive hip-hop aesthetic he is known for, this new fifteen-track collection makes for an incredibly absorbing listen. Filled with bold and bouncing textures, a shining atmosphere, and his own killer flow at the helm, 'God Is Here' sees him continue his ascent as one of the more exciting names on the rise right now.

So with the new album available to stream now, we sat down with him to find out more about his origins and influences over the years.

What was the first band or artist you fell in love with?

The first artist I fell in love with was Lil Wayne. His lyrical bars, the passion in his songs, and the emotion behind them drew me in right away. Lil Wayne to me is one of the goats that is still shaking mountains to this day.

Did you ever form a band when you were younger and if so, what did they sound like?

Growing up a few homies and myself didn't necessarily call our group a band but more so a group of young boys with the desire to do music. The thing is, I was the only one who didn’t do music but was just there for support. The group was called "AMM" Anonymous Money Makers. We were sticking by that name because even at a young age we knew the importance of being able to make money over having fame.

What has been your primary inspiration in writing music?

My inspiration comes from wanting to heal. Healing the inner child within me, healing past situations that I have may encountered, and also the path I am on now. Meditating, doing yoga, changing my diet, and vibrating at an optimal space of peace.

What is a song you wish you had written yourself?

I can't say there is a song I had written myself. However, there is a song I desire to be featured on, and that is Nipsey Hussle's Blue Laces. He has made such a beautiful and positive impact on the true culture of the community and unfortunately due to his transition, I wouldn't be able to get on that song or get a feature. But I'm truly grateful for his presence.


If there was any moment in your career you could relive, what would it be?

Honestly, I feel like I am living in the greatest moments I have ever lived In my music career. In a matter of 3 years, I have accomplished so much and I am now stepping into my power and seeing the results of all the seeds planted.

And is there an artist you would love to collaborate with as well?

I would love to collaborate with Kevin Gates and Russ for sure.

Where do you see yourself in five years time?

In five years time, I see myself releasing music from my farm. Growing my own food, being self-sufficient, and releasing healing and high-vibrational music.
