Rocco Tokyo’s love for Hip-Hop started from the young age of 3, dancing around the house when his dad Leonard would play old school classics at home. Straight from speaking his first words, he would begin mumbling along, making his flow and cadence apparent. An undoubted talent by the age of 5, his dad would record his rapping over downloaded Hip-Hop beats gaining the attention of his close friend Richard Rocky who had just started his own independent record label. This is how the Colchester-based label ROC-N-LEO INC. was born, supporting and guiding Rocco Tokyo on his route to well-deserved recognition and determined to share his talent and uplifting music to the world.
