Towkio Shares 'WWW.' Album From Space, Featuring Vic Mensa, SZA & More

Just two days prior (Feb. 21), the 24-year-old launched himself into space at nearly an altitude of 100,000 feet to achieve a life-long dream, where he listened to his project blaring through a speaker, before parachuting back down to earth.
The 13-track album sees crisp production throughout and a plethora of assists from notable artists including fellow Chicago native Vic Mensa, SZA, NJOMZA, Teddy Jackson and Grace Weber. Ironically, WWW. even features a song titled "2 Da Moon."
