Tino Byrd is a unique up and coming artist from Sacramento. Tino’s new single "Rage" has managed to seamlessly bridge the gap between metal and hip hop, presenting a one of a kind experience. Not only is the song itself exhilarating, the music video adds an unseen layer of emotion. It adds an eerie vibe to the project, and takes you deep into the mind of Tino Byrd. For me, this record falls amongst the likes of Suicide Boys, SCARLXRD and early XXXtentacion, with a personal twist. After listening multiple times, one can truly begin to understand the depth of this song. It wasn’t just thrown together in a night. Tino discusses the seriousness of mental health issues, and how it is easily overlooked in the world we live in today. People pass judgement but never stop to think about how life may be for that person. Seeing is believing, and everyone has a different perception of reality. This record gives the listener a chance to see what life may be like through a different set of eyes. There is true passion in Tino’s music, and thats what making music is all about.
