Tommy Cash

To merely call him a rapper from Estonia doesn’t do TOMM¥ €A$H justice. The lanky dude sporting a moustache is an interdisciplinary work of art. His perfectly produced tracks capture the zeitgeist and sound a little like the Estonian answer to Die Antwoord. He rose to fame with his videos “Leave Me Alone”, “Pussy Money Weed” and “Winaloto” reaching ten million views in total. Gladly breaking with hip hop cliches, he celebrates freaks and nude skin in all shapes and forms – an utterly beautiful scene with an armless ballet dancer sticks out in particular. Even without the powerful imagery of his videos, he has enticed and disturbed crowds in numerous clubs – and it won’t be any different at this year’s Melt.
