solipsistic NATION No. 296: Tokee, Live

On today’s show we’re going to hear a recording of Tokee performing live in Moscow. It’s bracing stuff and I just know you’re gonna love it! I’m actually new to Tokee’s music. I found out about him when I read a blog post about Dope Records. I thought the label’s name sounded cool and downloaded a few tracks from their website expecting to hear some hip hop jams.
