My name is Tota. I was born in Oakland and stayed there for a partial time of my life but I was raised in Vallejo, CA. I started rapping around the age of 7 or 8. Me and my older sister use to always find instrumentals on limewire and just rap over them. She was always better than me and she could rap hella fast so I wanted to be as good as her. In middle school I found out about FL Studio, my sister’s boyfriend at the time use to use it too so he showed like the basis of the program. I started teaching one of my best friend at the time how to make beats and we’d come home from school every day and just make beats and rap over them. In high school I really got into my element and gain comfort in my craft. I started battling at the school and gained a little recognition. My junior year I started a little rapped crew named MTL and we dropped a few tapes garnering a little buzz. After high school music kind of fell in priority for me. I had my daughter right after I graduated so everything about life changed. I started working more and wasn’t really releasing anything but I was always writing and trying to get better. In around 2014 I met my best friend Dianne Dulay and formed a Duo named WeAreYou. We released a few songs and garnered about 80,000 plays on soundcloud within a few months. We had some disagreements and decided to venture apart for a bit. And that leads me to where I am now.
