My Story


God took the vision of Tupac, the lyricism of J. Cole, and the charm of Drake, and created Torrian Ball. The Midwest MC was discovered by Chicago Hip Hop legend, Twista, who offered him a spot on his tour after witnessing the young spitter's mind blowing rapid fire delivery, and continued to mentor him throughout the duration of his career.

After overcoming advertisities in his youth growing up without a father, the Midwest MC was nearly killed in a car accident that left him paralyzed for almost a year, Torrian recovered stronger than ever and continued to push even harder to manifest his dreams. In the past 3 years he has lost his grandfather to Diabetes, his little brother to a fatal car accident, and his mother to an overdose.

After breaking up with the mother of his child, the rapper went through depression and decided it was time to make major changes in his life. Instead of letting these tragic string of events consume him, he has used this pain to fuel his ambition to tell the world his story, uplift and empower others, and use his music as a platform to discuss the hardships of his past. 

As a remarkable songwriter, he is fearless in his pursuit to push the limits of creative expression. His honest lyricism combined with intoxicating delivery creates songs that hit with razor sharp precision, garnering national appeal.

He has collaborated with a slew of highly recognizable rap stars to include but not limited to Grammy Award Winning Wiz Khalifa, Do or Die, Saba, GLC, and Grammy nominated producers Da Internz. Torrian has performed hundreds of shows to date alongside some of the most notable names in the rap industry, opening for artists like 2 Chainz, T-Pain, Chief Keef, Twista, Chance The Rapper, Lil Durk, Omarion, Trina, Common, and many more.  This amazing MC has performed across the country at events such as SXSW, Vitamin Water/Fader Magazine Uncapped Live Series, and even headlined his own Positive Vibes Tour. Being no stranger to media appeal, after releasing his new single “Wings” featuring Wiz Khalifa (which has gained collectively over a half a million streams via Spotify and write ups from respected sites and blogs all over the world).
