Chicago native ICYTWAT has been highly acclaimed for his music in the underground for years, on both the production and recording side. His beats are in a league of their own, and his vocal approach is starkly different than his contemporaries'. The veteran music-maker spent a chunk of his early career as a member of rap group Divine Council, alongside Cyrax, $ilkmoney, and Lord Linco. From there, he has added an incomparable amount of depth to his work; his beats have gotten even better, along with his recording ability.
Thoto was on tour in 2019 with Rocky in Canada and Europe; when the infamous incident went down, Thoto was also in jail with Rocky, and got released at the same time. In the time shortly after, Rocky brought Thoto and ICYTWAT out for his Rolling Loud 2019 set, which was an explosive entrance for the duo.
