Madeintyo, short for “Made in Tokyo,” only has one EP and a few videos to his name, but he’s already making a lot of noise in the crowded Atlanta hip-hop scene. He was born in Atlanta and raised in Tokyo, Japan – Madeintyo spent six years in Tokyo, moving back to the US after high school where he wound up joining an art collective started by his older brother, Royce Rizzy, called Private Club.
The 23-year-old Madeintyo and Private Club have gotten a lot of attention from the “Uber Everywhere” video along with his brother’s collaborations with Jermaine Dupri. Members of the Private Club are Phin Tha Weirdo, who’s from Houston, Salma Slims from Atlanta, Noah Wood$, who gives that boom-bam, hip-hop vibe and Nephlon Don from Philadelphia. He recorded his hit song “Uber Everywhere” in his kitchen with his Private Club members and his mom present.
Madeintyo and his brother have always done everything together. They got into the music because of their cousin – who use to rap and record in his room. The brothers started writing and rapping to the beats their cousin played and then he started setting up sessions in his room to record them and that’s how it all started.
They had great support from their mother who would blast their music in her car for everyone to hear. Atlanta, Georgia is a place known for its plethora of upcoming talent and Madeintyo has soared to the forefront of this list and so far the message is different and positive. He is modest and he is not rapping about money or drug use, which is a breath of fresh air from what we see in the rap game today.
