“All I remember is (Shorty) Slim heard the original somewhere and went straight upstairs to the studio,” said Torres. “I was downstairs at a show and when I came up, he had the beat basically done.”
This is how it began with the new single from Akron, OH rapper Floco Torres. “Nobody Knows” is an extended version of a snippet he and his producer created for the theme song from Netflix original movie ‘Barry,’ a biopic of young Barack Obama. It debuts today at MxDwn.
Floco (pronounced Flock-o) Torres knows a thing or two about starting over. 21 projects deep into his career as a solo recording artist, he has envisioned and revisioned his creative expression countless times and with this adaptive style he has gained a steady following for his hip-hop-meets-alternative rock style.
Citing influences such as Kid Cudi, Tame Impala, and St. Vincent, Floco continues to redefine hip-hop with his own personal style. A proficient in smooth flows of stirring and grounded lyrics, Floco appeals to classic rap fans, but bridges genre through the soul rock touches that provide the floor for Floco’s quick-lipped quips to dance upon.
