Big Tone "Chocolate"

November 13, 2022

After years of rhyming and collaborating with some of music's most prominent talents, Anthony Jackson is focused on pushing Big Tone to the forefront of today's music world, with his sophomore effort The Art of Ink. As an artist, Big Tone is an emcee. He's a lyricist who paints crystal clear and graphic depictions of life from a perspective that is universal to urban environments around the world. And with his 7 release "Chocolate" (Tres), Tone does just that. A smooth melody, including live instrumentation provided by Dwele (horns) and Zo! (rhodes & synth) creates a backdrop reminiscent of the traditional Motown sound, giving Tone plenty of room to craft picture perfect rhymes about life in Detroit city. Recognize the sample?
