Catch MadeinTYO

It’s stupid how many YouTube views MadeinTYO’s pop-off single “Uber Everywhere” has — stupid good, that is. Shot on a tennis court and in a forest, the video is visually stunning, but not as impressive as the 24-year-old, Honolulu-born artist’s bars, which are delivered at a rapid-fire pace and in an adorably nasal voice. Lauded as one of the first artists to usher in the whole “skrrrt skrrrt” fad, MadeinTYO has since followed with a bundle of mixtapes and EPs, as well as collaborative tracks with Travis $cott, Big Sean, and 2 Chainz, and appearances in commercials for companies like Adidas. But perhaps the coolest thing the up-and-coming rapper has done thus far is publicly switch allegiances from Uber to Lyft. After the latter pledged to donate $1 million to the ACLU, MadeinTYO sent out two tweets: “usta uber a lot, not no moeee” and “2017: lyft everywhere.”
