"Here I Come": Lion's Roar Entertainment LLC Introduces Hip-Hop Artist Toby TNT1

Debut Album to Follow First Single Currently Playing in Clubs Worldwide

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 07/30/09 -- Lion's Roar Entertainment announces the worldwide music industry debut of New York-based rapper and hip-hop artist Toby TNT1, whose first hip-hop dance single "Here I Come" (available on iTunes and Amazon), is already getting play from club DJs in over 17 countries less than three weeks after its initial release.

Born in Brooklyn, NY and raised on the unforgiving streets of Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, Toby TNT1 draws on his first hand struggles with drug and gang violence to create a gritty, in-your-face style that leaves no doubt this up and coming young artist has "been there and done that." As a young man Toby TNT1 made a deep connection with God that turned his life around. The dichotomous nature of his life experiences lends a hardcore edge to his socially conscious positive message.

"I watched a lot of friends and associates end up dead or in prison as a result of excessive living and greed," says Toby TNT1, pointing out that rap music often glamorizes the destructive lifestyle he left behind. "I want to deliver the truth in a way that speaks the language of the streets and gets through to people who know that reality the way I do."

Toby TNT1 hooked up with legendary multi-platinum record producer Veit Renn of N'Sync, the Backstreet Boys and Jennifer Hudson fame to produce and record his soon-to-be-released debut album. The tracks were mastered by three-time Grammy winner Bob Katz.

Music fans can get an early taste of what is to come with the aptly titled first single, "Here I Come," a club-friendly hip-hop dance track melding influences from Jesus Christ to Shakespeare. The song has been described by DJs as "From the first verse, too hot, too cool, 10 stars and in the crate!" Two yet-to-be released follow up singles, "Champion" and "A Whole Nother Game," are already garnering respect and praise from people in the music industry. "Champion," a rap, hip-hop song, has been called a banging anthem sure to be a hit, while "A Whole Nother Game" is a hardcore lyrical exploration of drug abuse brought to life by Toby TNT1's unique delivery.
