Choosing to keep a lot of his personal information to himself, rapper Tokyo's Revenge appeared seemingly out of nowhere in 2018 with an aggressive, distorted style that reminded many listeners of the late XXXTentacion. His debut single, "GOODMORNINGTOKYO!," was a viral hit, with blown-out production from Cliiifford and the rapper's versatile flows eventually being streamed tens of millions of times.
Tokyo's Revenge began uploading his tracks online in 2018, never revealing his real name, age, hometown, or other basic elements of his identity. After his first song "GOODMORNINGTOKYO!" skyrocketed him to fame in 2019, the rapper said in interviews he chose to stay anonymous so that listeners would experience his music without any outside associations based on where he was from or what scenes he was associated with. His anonymity didn't keep listeners from playing his tracks on repeat, and soon his second single, "THOT!," followed in the footsteps of his first, being played over ten million times. In addition to his big singles and two EPs entitled Mdnght (Side A) and Mdnght (Side B), Tokyo's Revenge collaborated with Joey Trap on the 2019 mixtape Trapped in Tokyo. A handful of 2020 singles including the Kid LAROI collaboration "Hell Bent" led up to the release of his EP 7VEN.
