Hi, My name is Professor Toon. For those of you that don't know me, I'm a rapper/producer/songwriter from Durham, NC. I was born in Baltimore, Maryland to a wonderful young lady hereinafter referred to as "Momma Toon". Momma Toon and I persevered for eight long years through physical and verbal abuse from whom I thought was my father figure. We found strength, grabbed my sisters and started fresh from square one. This road hasn't been easy, but what path to greatness is? Fast-forward about 15 years and here we are, knocking at the door of great things to come.

I'll try to keep this part as short and as sweet as possible. After stand-out performances at Moogfest 2016, a few REALLY DOPE opportunities have come about in the form of TOUR, songwriting gigs for major artists (can't tell you who yet) and another album. Never before in my short career thus far have I had everything in line for such a big push. I'm talking "Sway In The Morning" big! I'm talking "Tonight Show" big. I'm talking "(Insert most major festival you can think of ) Headliner" big. Lets go places. Let's grab a camera guy and document it all. Let's post those vids to Youtube. Let's make sure the content is of legit quality.We all can make these very real and attainable possibilities a reality, TOGETHER. Not only does this catapult me, its a major positive spotlight that'll shine on the area as a whole. I've come a long way from eating ramen in the projects. This is just the beginning. THIS is a home team win and there is no I in team. So let's do THIS! SQUAD!

Risks and challenges

The songs and performances won't be a challenge. I promise to give my all on stage for you. I got you. Its my job and duty to be good at those things.

The only challenge is funding. That's what this love letter is for :-)

The recipes involved in the reward packs though . . . well . . . there is a .01% chance that you will not like those. Ok, scratch that . . . you'll love them.
