So it says, that this year's request in Utage (a singing variety show) is "Love songs", and Toshi will sing the male part from female/male duets, and he wants to rap too.  ;D This sounds veeery interesting! I hope someone will upload it to somewhere! I've never heard Toshi rap before, haha. What do you think?

"さらにラップに初挑戦するとう意欲的は試みも." It's written there, it says: he's very motivated to try to rap for the first time.   :D

I can write rap lyrics for Toshi, Toshi pls hire me :P

Heeya, this is Toshl in da house
I'm rappin' here without a mouse,
just clickin' ma selfies with a finger,
da taste of cake on my tongue lingers
yo

We Are X cuz We Are Legendary
but Pata ain't gonna drink dairy.
Yoshiki likes wine and Kitty
Sugizo pretends he's pretty.
Heath's is just strummin' his bass,
while I caress his fine dayum... behind.
I ain't gonna swear live on TV,
but I have 35 years' coolness on my CV.

I'm Toshl from X in da house rockin'
haters gonna hate my hair, I'm flippin'.
I'm the coolest gangsta in my age,
now who's gonna wire me my wage?

Ok, now my mind is going through all kinds of rap battle scenarios. Toshi on one side Sugizo on the other. I can't really picture Yoshiki as a rapper so he would have to be in Toshi's gang with Heath. Sugizo can have Pata and some of his Luna sea members.

Or the whole of X Japan in a rap battle with another band? Hmmmm.....so many possibilities.

The mental image of that, OMG  ;D ;D ;D

Their stage name will be The GanXtas.  8)

We're chillin' in our leather panties
We got the damn coolest besties
Marylin, the Manson not the Monroe
For the new album, come back tomorrow

I'm Yoshiki, the leader of the bunch
Had fresh blood and cheesecake for lunch.
T'is my buddy Toshl the Dragonfly
His voice ain't cranky, don't you cry

Sugi-chan thinks he's prettier than me
But we all know he ain't got no Hello Kitty!
Pata loves cats and whiskey, yo
the shiny pants were my idea though.

Heath... I don't know what to say
We never really talk, but he plays.
He won't ever talk about heartache
but at least he won't steal my cheesecake.

We Are X, and I'm so pretty
All you girls are very jelly
Can't help it though, really sorry.

Now gotta go
to my studio
to shoot some selfies
with my bro.

Xoxo.

 sasasama, thank you for the information.  :) I think it is written that Toshl is willing to sing both male and female parts(yes, he can) and also rap part for the first time.

That’s what I thought too. I can totally see him doing a duet with himself, like Yoshiki’s piano battle with Yoshiki XD

Wow! I mean yes, he can, but how he is going to make a duet with himself haha. It's very interesting! Can't wait to see!
Also: thanks for the correction. It's even more interesting now.

Or maybe he'll collaborate with a woman and a man, and with the guy he will sing the female part, with the woman he will sing the male part. I really can't imagine singing both parts only by himself haha

He sings both parts? This is getting more and more intresting. :D But it's also getting more and more weird. ^^° Just what is this going to look like in the end? :D

I'm literally choking on my tea laughing at your rap lyrics, guys!  ;D

Toshi singing rap and a duet with himself... this is equal parts awesome and terrifying. Normally I'd predict a disaster, but since this is Toshi, I've got a hunch he'll somehow do a great job.

Woah, I can haz admin colour.

When I first read it, I recalled this stage.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWSf7jR9B6c

ㄴ They are original singers(band).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12DXszAfcFM

ㄴ And this singer arranged their song and sang alone.

Of course, that is not a female&male duet song, but the singer distinguished his voice from a soft voice and a rough voice, and sang the song of two people alone. Maybe Toshi can do it that way?

He had another performance on Utage, Say Anything acoustic. Seriously check this out, probably the best performance of this song ever. His voice is soaring in the air crystal clear, holding high notes long and clean. Ahh my heart  :-*

That's very beautiful.   Say Anything.  One of my all time favorites as it is.  Hmmm...

Sometimes our tears blinded the love
We lost out dreams along the way
But I never thought you'd trade your soul to the fates
Never thought you'd leave me alone

It was a really amazing performance, right until the last ten seconds, he ruins so many great performances by going overboard when he's already done enough, not having proper control of his voice, and not stopping himself when he knows his voice is going. sorry guys but the ending is part of the whole thing being good, don't know why I'm seeing posts saying "perfection, he didn't put a foot wrong".

If Toshi does that in a live performance in the west on a big live tv event like the X-Factor type stuff/festivals or even potentially at the Japanese Olympics when trying to get mainstream popularity in the west, then it wont happen for them. The general public will not suddenly fanboy them they'll be put off and remember that horrible screeching hoarse throat sound they had to endure for 10+ seconds. Imagine if he did this https://youtu.be/vo7G4cTWsmI?t=422 in that kind of live tv situation, ooh yeah this is the great new band all you hundreds of millions of people should fall in love with.

I thought Toshi was finally moving away from this since he's been doing a lot smarter things with his voice recently, was so close to being the best Say Anything performance since the 2008 Tokyo Dome one imo, bleh.

I think it is a bit harsh to say that he ruined a 4 minute performance with 10 seconds of screaming. ;) This is Japan. On top of that, Japanese TV. They work in a different way and expect different things from their guests. I think Toshi has enough work experience to know what he is doing and how he should handle things. :)

Wow, that was beautiful. Even the screaming at the end was great, his voice didn't crack, it was crystal clear during the whole song.
