Tony “WHOA!” Wallace II is a Spoken Word artist from Indianapolis, Indiana, kicking down doors in the Holy Hip Hop genre. “Trying to paint Tony as an average cat would be doing him disservice. As a matter of fact TonyWHOA! is a dude cut from a different cloth. He is a throwback MC in every sense of the word. Not only that, based on his socially conscience and at times humorous rhymes’ Tony might be considered a symbol of those who would like to take things back to “The Roots.” (Paul Collins, Dasouth.com)
Currently in production with his eighth CD release, Electric Car, Tony is switching up his game. Slowing down his trade mark rapid-fire delivery to insure the listener catches and ingests every word. His mission hasn’t changed; he is still inspiring people to model their lives after Jesus, using music as the catalyst. Mixing rap and poetry to create his own brand of what is now known as Floetry.
Raised by artistic parents with a strong love for music and poetry, it was inevitable he would become a wordsmith. During a brief move to Augusta Georgia at age eight leaving family and friends behind. Tony took to writing poems and songs to ease the pain of being far from home. Upon returning to Indianapolis, he was introduced to Hip Hop by his Uncle P-Rockk. Beginning his love affair with Rap Music, and solidifying what he wanted to be when he grew up.
Signing to his uncle’s independent label, Jamm-A-lott Records, Tony founded a crew called the Outlawz, and had music in stores before he turned fourteen. In 1991 the Outlawz, released their second single Can U Rap that hit regionally and in some of the larger cities in the nation. The crew disbanded before the album could be completed. Back at the drawing board Tony founded another crew call To Each His Own or T.E.H.O. Best known for their hit single, 1999’s The Laxative, T.E.H.O also dissolved due to differences in vision for the crew’s direction.
Going solo and tapping into various sub genres and styles of Rap through out the 80’s and 90’s, Tony finally found his home in Holy Hip Hop. Being raised in church his whole life the prodigal son had finally returned. Now in 2011 with seven classic CDs behind him, Tony is poised to tackle the future. The new CD Electric Car is going to be the vehicle to get him there. “TonyWHOA! is a man on a mission. That mission is to touch people where they are for The Lord Jesus”. (Paul Collins, Dasouth.com)

"How to stop your children from listening to RAP! "
If you want to know how to stop your child from listening to that bad rap stuff ... I'm sorry ... you can't. The odds are all stacked against you. Television, radio, magazines, and even commercials are working against you. (the FCC has narcolepsy)
Last year Nelly had a concert that was boycotted, with little or no effect. He just went to the next concert like nothing happened. In my opinion, the boycott actually helped sell more tickets. Any publicity is good publicity for Hip-Hop, especially if it is against Hip-Hop.
The only viable solution is to beat them at their own game. If you think rappers degrade women, support the rappers who don't. If you think rappers abuse drugs and alcohol, support the rappers who don't . If you think most rappers are sellouts and will do anything for money, find the ones who won't. If you dont know any rappers that are working for the greater good, my name is TonyWHOA!
Its nice to meet you!
zero to and hour and more if necessary. Anything goes when I'm on stage, Rapsoul, Spoken Word, Comeday, and more.
There are no upcoming dates at this time.
