A creative wordsmith with a soft-spoken Southern drawl, Tuki Carter is a unique presence in Hip-Hop. Riding a laconic, melodic delivery over a hazy, guitar-plucked instrumental, the Montage-produced “Like Me” is an anthem for those who get faded without giving a thought to the consequences: “Should’ve left it in the club/Now I gotta pour it out/fuck around and get pulled over/right in front a n*gga house.” Premiered today by Mass Appeal, the video focuses on the women who feel Tuki has wronged them, Tuki only emerging from the background to spit his verses and make a getaway with a new girl. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
The latest video from The Tuki Toker Tape, released December 9th via Taylor Gang Entertainment, “Like Me” follows up “Texting and Driving,” the first video single premiered in November by 2Dopeboyz, which finds Tuki defying the DMV amongst hula-hoopers, toy car joyriders, and footwork dancers and the smoke-filled video for the laidback “Get High Freestyle.”
Though the Atlanta-by-way-of-L.A. rapper is multifaceted in his personality and business interests, The Tuki Toker Tape explores the “pothead” facet, emphasizing tracks with deep bass and heavy reverb and introspective, party-positive lyrics that appeals to the heads. Featuring appearances from Wiz Khalifa, J.R. Donato, Gangsta Boo, Aleon Craft, Big Cheepa and Go Dreamer, as well as production from Ricky P., Rah Groove, Montage, RMB Justize, and others, The Tuki Toker Tape is purpose-built for the thinking stoner, ideal for soundtracking end-of-night smoke sessions. The follow-up to last year’s Tuki, which landed three singles, “Chirp,” “Good,” and “Yeah” on the Billboard/Twitter Emerging Artists Chart, the mixtape features appearances from Wiz Khalifa, Gangsta Boo, and fellow Taylor Gang artist, JR Donato, as well as production from Ricky P, DP Beats, RMB Justize and others. Tuki Toker is an appetizer for the upcoming Flowers & Planes, expected in 2017. The owner of and chief artist for City of Ink, a successful chain of tattoo parlors, Tuki Carter met TGOD boss Wiz Khalifa through Rick Ross in 2007, leading to a long and fruitful relationship between the artists. “I don’t want to be the next big something,” says Tuki Carter. “I want to be a staple in the world for art and music.”
