Itamiyo is the hippest new voice to hit Hip Hop in a long time. Hailing from the West African country of Cameroon, he now resides in Dallas, Texas. Born Boris Nchitu, Itamiyo (sometimes called Miyo) took the name from a popular Anime series which means“bring the pain.” He has announced the release of his newest single and video called “Loaded.” Growing up poor in West Africa gave him a work ethic that enables him to not only survive but to live, and grow. It’s why he called his first EP “The Rebirth of Itamiyo.” Flying high like an eagle is how he looks at his life now and “Loaded” is how he rolls.
Itamiyo’s voice is exactly what Hip Hop is missing and he brings it with a style that is going to be around for a long time. Miyo gives everything he has to his audience when he hits the studio.
Influenced by today’s sound of young hip hop such as Lil Uzi Vert, Pop Smoke, DaBaby, and rap giants like 50 Cent and Drake, Itamiyo is looking to make a name for himself and pave the way for others to follow behind.
With the release of The Rebirth of Itamiyo, Loaded and another single and EP on the way, Itamiyo will soon be one of Dallas’s go to artists. Moreover, seeing the success of Burna Boy on Bad Habit/Atlantic Records he feels like he has what it takes to be next in line to come out of West Africa.
Itamiyo says; “This reflects the music that inspires me and what I listen to. This is real hip hop from a world wide international perspective with a touch of the dirty south. Itamiyo began writing songs, rapping and singing as a way to express himself, as well as support and further his dreams. The EP titled “REBIRTH OF ITAMIYO” was released in November of 2020 and features Young Butta (who was also featured on “Bread Winners” by Young Thug); it also includes Shxlinho and Smooch on features. The single “Loaded” along with the full EP is available for download. Itamiyo is here and having a good time doing what he does best. He wants everyone to know that if a broke kid from Cameroon can achieve what he has to this point, with hard work, persistence and consistency – anyone can!
