“I am HIP HOP. It is quite possibly your answer to the question: Who is Midnite/Tuff on music not that synthetic stuff manufactured in a plant somewhere by mad scientists looking to make a quick easy buck at your expense. Rather he’s the good stuff—the fruit for thought. He is “an organic alternative that’s good for your heart.” Randall Todd aka Midnite was born in Philadephia, PA. Despite the typical experiences that come with being a less-than-middleclass Black man in an American inner city, his music glorify a so-called journey of survival “on the mean streets” or paint the all-too-familiar picture of nearly every urban film. You get what’s in the soul of an ordinary guy who just so happens to produce, write, and rap really well—quite frankly healthy music that uplifts, encourages, and inspires you all while keeping your head bobbin’. Back in ‘09, Midnite produced a single (Chuck up ya deuces) The songs garnered some attention from industry folk and attracted calls for performances at venues and events, and with an intentional effort to make an impression on the world through music. “I want to be someone who people can relate to [and] who can entertain you. But has something else on his mind.” Outside of making music, Midnite reinforces his messages by actually going to his audience, particularly the youth, as a potential example and role model, sharing his experiences and showing them that it’s okay to be a decent human being. His goal is to be the change that he wants to see, and to show that Hip Hop has more to offer than just “junk” food.
