She is ready to take the world by storm with her new single “Crazy” produced by certified platinum producer Earl “LC” Robinson (founder and original member of R&B group Public Announcement). Tocarra is more than just a typical female from the small town of Kankakee, IL, where she grew up in a low-income single parent home.

The stimulating artist grew up listening to the likes of New Edition, Monifah, Tony Toni Tone, then later Lil Kim, Beyonce, Destiny’s Child and Lauryn Hill. Growing up, she always had a passion for rhyming, as she would often write poetry in her spare time as a youth. Her love for writing has played a major role in her success in the music industry. Outside of music, Tocarra is a remarkable journalist, and is also extremely passionate about giving back to the community, as she volunteers her time to a multitude of nonprofit organizations and community initiatives. She is the Executive Director of Still I Rise nonprofit organization, and is also a driving force behind a large number of successful innovative businesses in her community. While promoting her positive energy, she has worked alongside and been in the company of a massive amount of industry greats including Nelly, Bow Wow, India Arie, Scarface, Ja Rule, Murphy Lee, Tanay Jackson, Jon B., Fred Hammond, Donald Lawrence, and a host of more. Tocarra has worked with a wide array of music producers and artists. She has recently teamed up with international DJ “DJ Slugo”, to release her hit single “So Hot (feat. Comprehend)” produced by DJ Slugo, while steadily growing momentum, as she is well on her way to revolutionizing the sound of music. Representing a sexy, exquisite and tasteful look that sets her majorly apart from the masses, this music sensation has a following stretching across the map, as she is rapidly blazing her own trails to musical dominance. With her distinctive voice and fearless, but fun delivery, Tocarra is swiftly cutting an eccentric dash through the competitive music industry.
Who are your top 5 influences? My biggest influences are groups such as TLC, Salt and Pepa, New Edition, Lauryn Hill and Tony Toni Tone.
When are your new projects coming out? My new single “Crazy” is out right now, mainly on radio and a multitude of online platforms. “Crazy” is produced by Certified Multi-Platinum Producer Earl “LC” Robinson who is the founder, owner and original member of the iconic R&B group R Kelly & Public Announcement. I’m working on my album in which we are taking our time. We are looking to release it by next year. I have a host of Platinum Certified Producers and Grammy Award-winning producers on the album.
What helped you get into music? When I was in elementary school I would write poems and short stories. My teachers would absolutely love them! I never realized that I was an artist at that time. I just enjoyed putting words together and structuring them. When I met my first producer Aaron “Comprehend” Robinson, he took me under his wings and began to work with me in the studio on some solo projects. He also put me on some of his projects. Then later, he began to introduce to me some other producers and significant people in the music industry.
What is one thing you would tell your fans? I would like to tell my fans thanks for supporting me and staying with me on this movement. We have a lot of great things coming. Continue to follow me on Instagram @TocarraMusikWorld and on Twitter
