Tokona X = Japanese Rap That Doesn't Suck

Tokona X Live performing "知らざあ言って聞かせや SHOW", "I'm in Charge" & "Next Big Thing"

Def Jam Japan's own TOKONA X


Tokona X died of a stroke at the young age of 26 on 11/22/04. I can only imagine what kind of music he would have made if he was still alive, his sound had a lot of energy & definitely gets your head nodding.

That's sad about Tokona-X. As soon as my move is done, I'm going to have to import "知らざあ言って聞かせや SHOW" for sure. ^_^

TX did not die of a stroke like everyone thinks. He was actually murdered by yakuza he dealt with early in life that helped him get to where he was. He was given bad drugs(Coke & Heroin) because his friends who happened to b yakuza felt he was getting too big for his britches.
