Towkio originally gained popularity as part of the Savemoney Crew, a Chicago based collective including the likes Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, and Joey Purp. He really steps into his own with WWW, a fun-loving feel good set of tunes that keeps you guessing at every turn. While it can feel erratic at times, Towkio's genius comes in his diverse set of samples that range from orchestral riffs to funky jungle drums to school kids shouting. I would be remiss if I didn't share the funnest of all facts about WWW. Towkio quite literally dropped this album out of nowhere - no seriously, he rode a helium balloon 19 miles into the stratosphere, listened to his bops, and parachuted back down. What a legend.
