Tony Millions, a.k.a. Mr. Million Bars was born to make music and strives to be one of the greatest hip hop acts of all time. Born in Toledo, Ohio and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Tony was inspired by hip hop musicians like The Real Slim Shady, Snoop Dogg, Tone Loc and 2Pac from the young age of seven. Tony wrote and recorded his first song, “Walk Tha Walk,” in his Uncle’s basement while still in middle school. The experience of producing and performing his own song set the course for a lifetime of music.
Tony officially launched his independent music career at the age of 16, while still attending Royal Oak High School. He routinely performed in local talent shows, at nightclubs, parties, and other community events. After graduating from Specs Howard School of Media Arts in 2013; Tony gained skillsets that contributed to both writing and recording his own music and engineering other artists. His first mixtape, “Under 21,” released in 2014 to excellent reviews.
In 2017, Tony worked with popular Detroit rapper Grizzley Gang’s Sada Baby and producer Oso Familiar of Freeport, NY and released a single titled “Top 5.” The release of this single increased Tony’s audience and spurred a growing interest in his music and live performances. Tony continues to write, produce and release his own independent music and finds inspiration in artists such as Wiz Khalifa, Lil Wayne, Kevin Gates, Kendrick Lamar and in movies and pop culture.
Early March 2018, Tony Millions opened for Chief Keef after his social media fanbase got him enough tags during an online competition to perform in front of one of the most influential Chicago national acts in Grand Rapids, Michigan at The Orbit Room.
Due to his love for hippie culture, Tony self-released, “Dude, Where is My Backwoods” in March 2018 where he drew inspiration from the 2000 movie “Dude, Where’s My Car”.
After experiencing SXSW for the 1st time Tony made a follow up self-released project entitled "Highdrated" in 2019. He promoted the project and passed out flash drives and merch to potential fans and Shade 45 radio hosts to grow his audience and even performed a 16 bar verse on the cypher. His crafty wordplay and witty punchlines made Sway nod his head and gained him more national fans through Sirius XM.
Lately Tony Millions has been scoring more international shows in Canada rather than the United States but he strives to secure a life long presence in all of the popular hip hop cities on his journey to become one of the greatest major hip hop acts of all time.
