RJ Ayesha caught up with Nathan Joseph Mendes, who goes by the stage name Tsumyoki or just Yoki. This multi-talented artist is not just a rapper and singer-songwriter; he’s also a wizard in the audio engineering and record production realm. Tsumyoki’s stage name embodies vision, productivity and a positive mindset.
He’s Goa’s hip-hop trailblazer, completely flipping the script in the English music scene. At just 19, he made history as the first Goan and youngest artist to get signed by Gully Gang Records, thanks to his sheer talent. He was also featured in Goan Insider’s 50 Most Influential People of 2021. Plus, ‘It’sGoa.com’ crowned him as Goa’s best rapper.
Mendes kicked off his musical journey at the age of 17. Back then, he wasn’t just about the rap game; he wanted to mix it up, explore different vibes. Big shoutout to his mom and the fam who’ve had his back since day one, keeping those beats flowing.
When it comes to musical inspiration, this guy’s got the ultimate squad: XXXTentacion, Juice WRLD, Drake, Eminem, Post Malone, Ski Mask the Slump God, and the legend himself, Michael Jackson. Talk about learning from the best in the game!
Mendes isn’t just a solo star; he’s also a key player in the epic boy band, none other than the Goa Trap Culture (GTC) crew.
