Toussaint Morrison

Minneapolis based rapper and 3-time national slam poet, Toussaint Morrison is a hopeless romantic who writes open and honest lyrics with pop/fringe culture references and a touch of soul. Toussaint found creativity and inspiration through hardship. He grew up in a single-parent household in the Riverside Plaza section of Minneapolis, “It was a low income section of Minneapolis which mainly consisted of an immigrant population. We all wanted to become rappers or basketball players and found ways to be creative with no money.” He attributes music and a uniting sense of community in being the driving force in overcoming the racial disparity he faced in Minneapolis.
