Fo Fo Fo is not your typical SoundCloud rapper project. With a unique sound, Tōn EFX draws inspiration from innovative artists such as Nas, Eminem, and Pharrell. Being from Silsbee, Texas, Tōn EFX developed around other talented musicians and began releasing music in 2015.
There’s no doubt that American fast food chains are a big staple in American culture and now this staple has found itself in music as well. ‘Fo Fo Fo’ is an eclectic curation of tracks by Antonio Jamaal Dill, who goes by the artist name Tōn EFX, with a theme of you guessed it- the popular deal at the fast-food chain Wendy’s.
The EP is diverse in its range of tracks, but Tōn EFX rapping stays consistent through all of it. He glides over the beat, the tracks mastered in such as a way that allows his rapping to permeate your brain while you take in the musical aspect of the project equally. ‘Beautiful Day’ features elements of Lo-Fi while Maraschina II, a personal favorite, is reminiscent of the rap my parents used to listen to. If EP is any indication of the momentum that Tōn EFX has been rocking with, I will be not-so-patiently awaiting the album.
