Born and RAISED on the NORTHSIDE of SAN ANTONIO,TEXAS,WiLL “TOOFPICK WILL” Jefferson, born stillbirth,TooFPicK managed to go through life while being raised in the torn-down El Chapparal apartments on the North East side of San Antonio.
Given the name “Toofpick” for his lanky figure and use of the utensil everywhere that he travels,Will took his jabs at rapping at the young age of 14 while freestyling with his friends after hours at MacArthur High School.
IAA: What are your songs about?
TOOFPICK WILL: My songs are about topics people can relate too. I am being myself through my music. I am a 6’2″ 1/3 Spaniard 1/3 Black (my father is Black,It’s a Mariah Carey thing lol) kid. I have a high metabolism , hence the name Toofpick. I fell in love with hip-hop and wanted to make enough money to get my mother out of Section 8. If you can relate to what I do, used to do, or will do, then my music is for your ears.
Inspired by many HIP HOP legends such as 2Pac and Big L,Will’s main reason for being an MC was actually NOT for the money as it would for many rappers out today,but for Popularity and RESPECT as well.
IAA: Why do you want to record and release your own music?
TOOFPICK WILL: I recently got my own studio equipped with the latest Pro Tools. Now I can save so much time and money when recording. I love making music, it calms me down when dealing with life’s problems
