Biography

Hailing from the Bronx, Tokyo (whose real name is Lydia) could easily be lost among the numerous wanna-be rappers from the same area with the same life story. But once she begins to rap, it is immeditately obvious that she is one in a million.

Only being 19 years old, Lydia has produced numerous tracks and written thousands of raps with artists and producers in the Bronx. But one fateful day, producer Jay Levine spotted her in the subway and knew she was something special. This is truly where Lydia's story begins. Within months she was signed to indie label Lefthook Records, and is in the process of recording the thousands of songs she's written over the years.

Even before being signed, her MySpace was blowing up. Lydia had put 4 rough tracks on her page, and within a month each track had over 20,000 plays. Unfortunately, due to a MySpace glitch, her page was deleted, taking away the tens of thousands of plays and hundreds of thousands of comments and friends.

But starting fresh is not discouraging Lydia. It is an opportunity to clean everything up and start over new, bigger and better. Besides music, Lydia wants to start her own clothing line, as well as take a stab at modeling.
