Tokyo Jetz is a rapper from Jacksonville, Florida who initially received attention over a series of freestyle videos recorded in her car. Her style is brash, aggressive, and dramatic, with lyrics focusing on the harsh aspects of street life, but she can also be playful as well as introspective. Originally a poet, she began rapping while in high school. Gradually, her freestyles and mixtape appearances attracted attention from several big-name rappers, including T.I., who signed her to Grand Hustle in 2016. Jetz moved to Atlanta in early 2017 and toured across the United States with her labelmates. Following the upbeat, summery single “Sunshine Baby” and the reflective “My Story,” her label debut, Viral, appeared in August of 2017.
Hailing from the East Coast and taking the entertainment industry by storm, Inas X exploded onto the music scene with her catchy single “Love Is” reaching number 10 on the Top 20 Billboard Dance Chart in 2016. Inas is an unstoppable force with killer confidence and a determination to spread the importance of love, independence and self-worth.
Her music, like herself, is boldly unique possessing international and cultural influences, as well as a fresh new sound that is redefining music into a new genre befittingly called, Exotic Pop. Just as this fiery star can’t be put into a box, neither can her music.
Born Inas Maale in Brooklyn, NY, Inas traded her given last name for a bold “X” representing empowerment, independence and dedication. She channeled these ideas when she wrote her hit song “Love Is.” The song showcases the values that Inas holds important, and she believes that the world could use a lot more love. Her mission is to continue to spread as much of it as she can not only through her music, but in everything she does.
The success of “Love Is” and her distinct musical style proved to be an asset when she embarked on Fetty Wap’s national ‘Welcome to the Zoo’ tour performing in over 30 major cities such as NY, LA, Miami, Chicago and Atlanta.
Creative, inspirational and purposeful, Inas’s music inspires listeners to make a change that will better their lives. Influenced by Madonna, Lady Gaga, and fellow Brooklyn natives Aaliyah, Jay-Z and Notorious B.I.G., her biggest inspiration was Michael Jackson who she not only admired for his philanthropic efforts, but for his undeniable raw talent.
Inas’s latest electrifying single “Stupid” (ft. PnB Rock) released in the Fall of 2016, details a toxic relationship that she had trouble walking away from. The track inspires listeners to remember that they are not alone in their struggles and everyone makes mistakes. Her relatable music uplifts audiences and reminds them that any struggle can be overcome. Ultimately, Inas wants to spread light and love through her art and explains that, “With so much going on in the world, I just want to make people feel good.” She debuted the “Stupid” Remix (ft. DCS) video in the Summer of 2017.
With her undeniable talent as well as her quest to positively influence as many people as possible, Inas X is destined to leave a legacy.
