(New EP Review) @TokyoJapJunkie "Tokyo Tales"
A young beautiful 21 year old singer/rapper coming straight out of New Jersey making it real big as an independent solo artist, she is doing it very well. Her name is Tokyo Japjunkie and I have been keeping my eye out on her for a while now, she's a dope artist so I have to give her props. She did couple covers and freestyles over artist's tracks. Tokyo Japjunkie just released her second project Tokyo Tales EP following up from her first project Ms.New Jersey which was released three months ago. Her music has been played on radio stations in NY such as HOT 97 and Power 105.1, 5 million plays on Sound Cloud and plenty words to say about her. Her new EP only has four tracks and it would be great if you could give Tokyo a listen of your ears, follow her on social media.
