New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The rapper, songwriter and producer of hip hop known as Tommie Hooks has released his solo debut, "Falling Out the Sky." The album has been proudly published by the Royal Family independent record label without the inclusion of the corporate music industry. It has been released with an official music video available for viewing online now (link provided below). Poetic, socially relevant, and charged with conscientious political criticism, "Falling Out the Sky" proves that Tommie Hooks has lines and rhymes for days and days.

Asked to cite some main artistic influences, Harlem, New York's Tommie Hooks writes, "I am influenced by life experiences, current events, other artists, people and vibes."

Hooks notes that while he grew up on and in the music scene, he was chiefly "inspired to write by my older cousin #freeTerranceMoore."

The closing hashtag is a hint at the activism that lives in the writing of Tommie Hooks. His music has soul and groove, boom and bap, yes, but perhaps more than anything else, it has purpose and meaning. "Falling Out the Sky" in particular points a wagging finger at the great amounts of social injustice and political corruption facing the United States in 2018.

Speaking of his new album, Hooks says, "I believe it provokes thought and creates awareness through clever and witty wordplay with soulful flows and a humble but demanding delivery, if you can fathom. It is my opinion that each song has different vibes depending on your mood. For example, you can party or you can mellow out, you can work, you can work out, you can hit the highway, or you can be conscious and perhaps gain a jewel. It is all there."

Tommie Hooks' current official bio describes him: "My name is Tommie Hooks. People also know me as 'Tommie Gunz' from Harlem, NY. I have always had a passion for music. I've rubbed elbows with many artists and producers, including DMX, Joe, Aaron Hall, Vado, Moe Mansun, Jae Millz, LOX, D. Dot, DJ RonG, Pop Shyt, Ron Jones, Capitol J, late great BigL, the legendary KRS One, and multi-platinum producer Dame Grease, just to name a few. I was signed to Jive Records as a member of the brotherhood, Mic Vandalz. My solo debut is 'Falling Out the Sky.'"

"Falling Out the Sky" from Tommie Hooks becomes available from over 600 quality music stores online worldwide beginning 4 February 2018. Get in early, hip hop fans.
