Tookie 3x, born Marcus Randle, is an independent and upcoming artist making waves in the music industry. Hailing from Vicksburg, Mississippi, Tookie’s musical journey began at the age of 7 when he started singing at church. However, it was at 14 that he discovered his passion for rap, and with the support of his mother, who is a professional blues singer, he delved into the world of music.
Despite facing challenges such as being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at a young age and coping with the loss of his grandparents, Tookie’s determination to stand out and make his mark grew stronger. His mother serves as his biggest musical inspiration, and he aims to emulate the soulful essence of his music to make listeners feel good. Driven by a sense of obligation to be the best version of himself and make his late grandparents proud, Tookie is motivated to excel in his craft. The success of fellow artist Wheezy, who hails from his hometown and is now one of the top producers in the industry, further fuels his aspiration to make it big.
Looking to the future, Tookie 3x envisions collaborations with artists such as NBA Youngboy, and he has a new single titled “Serious” slated for release. When he’s not working on music, you can find him on the basketball court, honing his skills. With an unwavering dedication to his craft and a promising musical journey ahead, Tookie 3x is an artist to watch out for. Stay tuned for more from this rising star.
