A new sound is coming out of Sacramento from a Unique artist. We had an opportunity to sit down with Dayounte to talk about his new single “Toe Tag” and more…
We’re glad to be able to interview with you today, go ahead and let VMG know who you are:
Yooo, I’m Dayounte, rap artist out of Sacramento. I’ve been in this industry for almost 10 years and have performed at events all over the western US. I founded the brand, “Tough Times Music Group” in 2014, a movement that allows everyone involved to relate and feel connected through difficult times.
Okay! Well, hell of an introduction Dayounte and we thank you again for interviewing with us. So VMG has noticed you’re making noise out in Sacramento with a new sound?
Most definitely! The new album ‘5250’ has it’s own unique character and sound. My team and I try to stray down our own path as artists. My latest single, “Toe Tag”, grips this new sound so we’re excited for the video and the album release in 2021.
Where can your music be found?
All major music streaming platforms. As of lately, I’ve been asking everyone engaged in listening to the music to follow my SoundCloud page.
Who are your inspirations?
I love oldies music! Everything from the temptations to Elton John. As for modern artist, I vibe with a few of them such as J. Cole, Kevin Gates, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Lil Baby & more.
Okay, so now we know a little bit more about you as an artist, tell us, what does your album ‘5250’ focus on?
5250 is my second studio album and the follow up to 5150. This series of albums focuses mainly on topics of mental health. Where the first album focused on mostly external struggle and references of mental health issues, 5250 dives directly into the perspective of my life. My journey through my own mental crisis and displaying my turmoil, emotion and my motivation to see the light through these Tough Times.
Well Thank You! We really enjoyed meeting you and showcasing you as an artist on VMG.

There are times when someone comes into the industry and shakes things up, which makes you want to watch their journey. We feel this may be that moment with the Sac-Town representative. With insight on what may be the next big thing to blow. Dayounte is looking to be that driving force with his strong and creative approach to music is definitely something to watch. With his DOPE new single "Toe Tag". We were highly impressed with the production and wordplay. Check out the new single and tell us what you think.
