Massachusetts rapper WHYTRI began his creative work within the local dance community, but through increased exposure to the rap scene, he found a natural talent and direction for the craft. Forever ahead of his time, WHYTRI began cultivating a sound in 2017 that now has been sharpened and perfectly coined by the artist himself as “alternative-crunk.” Inspired by a variety of artists, including Ludacris, Linkin Park, Missy Elliot, System of a Down, James Brown, Tyler the Creator, and Soulja Boy (the list goes on), WHYTRI is a true pioneer for a genre that bridges the energies and musicality of heavy alternative rock and the eclectic, dirty-south crunk of the 2000s. Thus far, his career has led him to open tour stops for some of today’s most notable artists, including Rico Nasty, MAVI, IDK, Bhad Bhabie, and more. His mixtape, Collizion, surpassed a quarter of a million streams with no signs of slowing down yet. WHYTRI joined Boston Music producer Of The Year Jon Glass (BIA, J.COLE, Hopsin, and more) for a joint project, “MiMA” releasing in 2022, with a Four Date titled “Days Of Crunk”. Stay tuned for all things WHYTRI on the horizon, including his independent tour, A2L4 (Alot 2 Live 4) running through Washington DC, Toronto Canada , Rhode Island Massachusetts , with new dates and cities coming.
