Given his golden ticket by a phone call from Justin Bieber‘s manager Scooter Braun, YouTube viral sensation Matt Toka is hitting the music scene in a big way. After Toka played several acoustic songs for Mike Caren who is notably known for signing numerous platinum selling artist (T.I., Wiz Kalifa, Flo Rida, Trey Songz) he signed the punk rocker on the spot.
Growing up in a dysfunctional household full of abuse, addiction and family members incarcerated, his story resembles that of Eminem. Toka isnt shy about his past and it is a common theme in his writing. While Toka’s stardom blossomed from home-shot solo acoustic performances of punk-pop renditions of hip-hop song to Top 40, his original songs are a sign he will soon be a household name.
Matt Toka’s latest single “GET MONEY” ft 2 Chainz is punk-pop party track with a hip-hop twist. Toka is currently in the studio completing is his debut album with Rob Cavallo (Greenday, Kid Rock) to be release in early 2013.
