Fusing the emotive ’90s vibes from artists like Aaliyah and Monica with the rolling hi-hats of today’s trap music, Toni Romiti’s tracks are literal fire especially since she’s sort of a Soundcloud rapper. And maybe that’s why her music is hot. Getting noticed in a sub-genre of hip-hop that’s saturated with un-talented male rappers that get more attention than they should, Toni Romiti is a breath of fresh air (or hot fire). On “Options” Romiti floats between alto vocal whole notes to almost rapid-fire sung-raps that fold over a staccato bass line and hi-hat driven trap beat. In our opinion, It’ll be surprising if Romiti isn’t the next hip-hop artist to make it big.
