MadeinTYO and UnoTheActivist have been pioneers for the underground’s signature sound since the initial start of the SoundCloud era. With hits like “Uber Everywhere,” “Ned Flanders,” “Go With The Flow” and more, the duo looks to capitalize on their status with their new collaborative album Yokohama.
Merging their respective sounds with extremely interesting results, the pair revitalizes their artistic prowess by playing off each other’s strengths on their new joint mixtape.
Similarly, Yokohama adds to an extremely busy year for UnoTheActivist, dropping a total four projects and a plethora of singles. As his entire Unoverse trilogy dropped this year — featuring contributions from Ty Dolla $ign, Matt Ox, Yeat, MDMA and more — he sat down with OGM host Hakeem Rowe to discuss his overall presence as a pioneer for the culture, new music on the way and much more back in July.

Mr. Tokyo has also made due in 2021, sharing the “SOUL-LUXE” to his 2020 album Never Forgotten. Most recently, TYO dropped a House remix to his breakout hit, “Uber Everywhere,” as his viral single “HUNNIDDOLLA” has now accumulated over 25 million plays on Spotify — combining a wavy instrumental with his classic laidback delivery.
Ultimately, Yokohama combines the duo’s styles seamlessly, providing them with a variety of direction and energy within each song. Its lead single “Love Myself” is a self-love anthem over an 8-bit beat, as both rappers proclaim their status through autotune vocals. With appearances from MDMA and KA$HDAMI, the sound of the project varies from rage to mellow type beats, giving listeners a wide range of sounds on the 16-track release.
