Toosii – who has toured with such artists as DaBaby, Summer Walker and Polo G – will kick off his first-ever U.S. headline tour on October 21 at Jannus Live in Tampa, FL. The run will include shows at New York City’s Webster Hall (November 2) and The Novo in Los Angeles (November 12). The South Coast Music Group/Capitol Records recording artist will wrap up the Thank You For Believing tour with a November 27 show at The Ritz in Raleigh, NC. See below for full itinerary.

Toosii, who will also perform at Rolling Loud Miami 2021 on July 23, has proven to be one of rap’s most relatable rising stars, amassing nearly one billion combined global career streams to date. On his new mixtape, Thank You for Believing, the Syracuse-born, Raleigh-based artist doubles down on the honesty and raw emotion he exudes on the mic. Standout tracks include “what it cost” and “back together” – which appeared on XXL’s weekly list of the “best new songs” – plus “shop” ft. DaBaby. Download / stream Thank You For Believing HERE.

THE FADER named Thank You for Believing as one of the “8 projects you should stream now.” Complex hailed Toosii as “One of music’s brightest stars.” HotNewHipHop said, “Toosii continues to impress with yet another solid display of his raw talent, unpeeling even more layers of his personality and his pain on the tape.” The Source, which interviewed Toosii for this “On The Rise” column, noted, “Where the streets meet romance, Nau’Jour Grainger, better known as Toosii, has proven to be one of the fastest rising artists we’ve seen this year.” In this feature,VMAN declared, “Rising artist Toosii is taking over the rap universe.”

While his career has been percolating in North Carolina for years, Toosii found staggering success in February 2020 on the strength of Platinum Heart. The album hit No. 1 on Billboard’sHeatseekers Albums chart and launched Toosii into the top 10 of Rolling Stone’s Breakthrough 25 chart. He quickly followed up those achievements with Poetic Pain in September 2020, which debuted in the top 20 of the Billboard 200. Toosii earned his first Gold record in January 2021 – for his top 10 Urban radio hit, “Love Cycle.” He is Audiomack’s latest #UpNow artist and Billboard named him as an artist to watch, noting, “Toosii is coming for the crown.”
