Minneapolis Toki Wright
, who was raised Buddhist, developed an awareness of the world that influenced his work as a hip-hop emcee, community activist, and world traveler. This awareness is reflected in his debut album, A Different Mirror
, notably on songs like the socio-political anthem State of Emergency. Wright mixes the message and the music together in a way thats equal parts inspirational and infectious. Whether hes working the crowd at Coachella or with children in war-torn Uganda, Wrights audience is better off for the experience.
