"Tori WhoDat has rightfully earned the spotlight of the Memphis music scene and is destined to be a household name. This young creative was once classified as a Hip-Hop artist but has transformed into an artist that can successfully transcend genres.

Tori is truly paving her own lane. She began writing reflective lyrics before the age of fifteen that eventually deemed her the outcast of a blue collar, devout Christian home. These real accounts of her experiences and associated emotions have been shared and appreciated by the LGBTQ community as well as given a different perspective to others. Having moved from New Orleans to Memphis and later Chicago and Baltimore, the heart of this female lyricist is filled with stories of skeletons in the closet, struggles with society and the rollercoaster ride that comes along with grinding and sacrificing for your dreams.

The first mixtape, “Tori Story”, was released in May of 2012. The beginning of the initial hype came from the opening track entitled “Rhythm” which has consistently remained a crowd favorite. Before moving on to showcasing new material, Tori returned to the studio to “re-mix” her first project with Leo Goff, long-time Yo Gotti engineer. “Tori Story Point Oh” dropped in November of that same year, which proved to be a more polished piece of work. After this, Tori put together a collection of remixes (referred to as “refixes”) and released it as “Dat Krewe: The Mixtape”. The song, “That B*tch”, a refix of “Lucky A** B*tch” by Mac Miller & Juicy J, became popular after a memorable Thanksgiving performance at SENSES The Nightclub in Memphis, TN. After this, Tori WhoDat put out a few songs and refixes before the much anticipated drop of “Krewedentials: The Mixtape”, hosted by DJ Smallz and DJ Crumbz, with the Southern Smoke stamp of approval on Mardi Gras day 2014. The title track “Krewedentials” quickly became the anthem for the Dat Krewe movement and was played on WHRK-FM/K97, KWNW-FM/101.9 KISS FM, WHBQ-FM/Q107.5 in Memphis, TN along with a few other radio stations worldwide. Tori WhoDat’s “Same Love (Refix)” made a lot of noise as well with a visual that grew organically and was even acknowledged by Rosie Mendez, a New York City Councilwoman.

Since the release of “Krewedentials: The Mixtape”, Tori has been focused on improving her craft. On Valentine’s Day 2015, Tori released the single “Love The Way” (featuring Patrick The Third aka Rose Gold Jones) to the world and revealed new facets of her talent. It quickly made waves in Memphis, TN and garnered recognition from the legendary Fatman Scoop. The official music video premiered through TrillHD and soared to over 10,000 views. A digital radio push followed and “Love The Way” peaked at #128 on the DRT National Airplay Top 200 Chart, #3 on the DRT National Airplay Top 80 Independent Chart and #10 on the DRT National Airplay Top 50 R&B/Hip-Hop Chart.

After the success of “Love The Way”, Tori released the single “Free” produced by friend and long-time collaborator Chris3000. Brodee Scott of Memphis’ KWNW-FM/101.9 KISS FM and Kobi Kearney of Louisville’s WNRW-FM/989 Radio Now both premiered the song and the support continues while the download and streaming numbers rise. An official video is on the way and a full campaign for Tori’s new EP is in the final phase of preparations. The new collection of music will highlight the massive growth within Tori as an artist and individual. From being a local rapper to being respected as a well-rounded regional artist with worldwide potential, the possibilities for Tori’s reach are truly limitless.

On top of being an incredibly talented recording studio artist, Tori’s stage presence has gained much attention and captivated the hearts of many fans and spectators. She began gigging professionally in 2012, with notable performances at A3C Festival, SXSW, Mid-South Pride, Atlanta Pride, Chicago Pride, Capital Pride, Sundance Film Festival, Brooklyn Bowl, 101.9 KISS FM’s KISS Concert and the world famous Apollo Theatre along with opening sets for Juicy J, Machine Gun Kelly, B.o.B., SoMo, Rae Sremmurd, Flo Rida, Charlie Puth, Meghan Trainor, Riff Raff, Mike Stud, Al Kapone, Lil Wyte, Da Mafix 6ix, Dizzy Wright and many more. Tori WhoDat’s electric energy fills the room and will be an experience you will not forget."
