Audacy's own Greg Street of V-103 caught up with in-demand rapper to discuss Thank You For Believing, out at midnight and DaBaby's influence on his work acumen. Prior to lockdown, Toosii found himself opening for the famed rapper, along with Summer Walker, Moneybagg Yo, City Girls and more. Being signed to DaBaby's label, Toosii revealed some of the best lessons he's learned from the GRAMMY-nominated rapper. "Anything is possible. I seen him a while back and what he had going on, so to see him make it now, I just took in my own consideration. Like Imma do the same thing," he expressed.

Thank You For Believing is "every type of vibe, anything you could ask for," according to Toosii. It features DaBaby, Mulatto and Key Glock. The North Carolina-based rapper is using this album to prove that he has "substance" behind his bars. "Real talk, you really gotta listen. [...] it's a little harder to comprehend bars when it's behind a melodic tone. [...] It's a lot of people who don't know I can rap yet," he revealed. Check out the full interview above.
