Trippy was born on a cold beach somewhere in northern europe. From an early age he was exposed to beautiful skinnydipping scandinavian women and rnb-music on wack boomblasters, influences you can still hear in his music today. And the charming young tortoise quickly became a true ladies turtle.
One warm summer night in the middle of mating season, Trippy was caught in a fishing net and came aboard a fishing boat from Jersey. Talking his way out of becoming a part of today's stew, he became friends with the crazy chef Molly which fed him with all sorts of crazy things for her entertainment. It is widely believed that this caused the trippyness of young Trippy.
After many weeks, the fishing boat arrived in Jersey and our hero started his long journey to the other side of the street. On his journey he met many other cool party-animals and together they formed the infamous gang "FoFoFadi Foodchain." Rumors are that our trippy turtle had terrible pronounciation and the gang was originally called "No More Sardines."
One day it all changed... Trippy got into a fight with Disco Duck and Disco tossed him into a wall. The sounds the shell made shocked the whole crew. Turtle immediatly called his mother and she confessed his long lost father Roland was indeed... an 808. With his new found roots, Trippy told his friends and family that he wanted to do music. And so he did.
MadeInTYO (pronounced Made In Tokyo) comes to us by way of his young collective known as The Private Club of which he is CEO.
MadeinTYO, does not have your typical backstory - son of a Naval Officer, he moved around frequently until his family landed in Tokyo during the start of his high school years. Influenced by the foreign culture around him and inspired by his brother24HRS (a successful artist in his own right) Madeintyo began to take music seriously. He uploaded a song to his brother's page & a movement was born.
Oakland-born, Atlanta-based singer/rapper Robert Davis first recorded as Rolls Royce Rizzy, pinged the radar of a certain luxury automobile manufacturer, and subsequently altered his name to Royce Rizzy. Davis settled on 24hrs following a brief affiliation with Jermaine Dupri's So So Def label. A more R&B-oriented outlet for Davis -- with pitch-altered, bottom-heavy slow jams the m.o., placing him somewhere between the-Dream and frequent collaborator Ty Dolla $ign -- 24hrs debuted in 2016 with multiple bundles of SoundCloud uploads and Open, an EP released commercially through Private Club. The eight-track follow-up Night Shift followed in 2017, at which point Davis had also racked up outside collaborations with the likes of MadeinTYO (his brother), Ty, G-Eazy, and Blackbear.
