BIO NYTY is a rapper from the DC, Maryland & Virginia metropolitan area. NYTY (Tony Prunty III) was born on Oct 15th 1990 in SE Washington, DC & moved to Prince George’s County when he was 12. NYTY has been rapping since 2003, he saw a rap battle at his school at the time (Crossland High School) & that pushed him to start writing as Akshon.

My style is described as a fluid perspective portrayal of the world around me as a urban black male with an alternative sense of consciousness.
