You may have figured out by now that Music and Photography are my passions. One of my favorite sites/photographers that infuse my passions is photobytone.com. Tone’s work is the closest I’ve seen to what direction I’d ideally like to go with my craft. He’s able to bring photography, music, and the random minutia that inspires him, together in an intriguing way. Much of his work also involves visually appealing intimate video interviews with musicians.
His recent posting, 431, is with The Kid Daytona. I’ve known Daytona for a couple years, but hadn’t seen him for a hot minute. Ironically enough, I saw him last week at Santos and asked him what was going on in his flourishing career. I’ve been slipping on my Hip-Hop game, because apparently he’s the next big thing. Other than knowing that he’s a genuinely nice guy, with an amazing memory, the last thing I really knew about his music was his Justin Timberlake, Sexy Back remix and his fun single Fly Shit.
I got a chance to check out his new stuff, and I must say all the buzz is warranted! I’m hyper-critical of Hip-Hop these days, and he’s nice (and I’m not saying this because I know him). He has a vibe that just might be necessary for the music game right now, and the canter of his flow is refreshing. There’s a small excerpt from his song Lately in that Tone video.
Look out for The Kid Daytona!
