Susan, as always, an interesting post. Thanks.

In the Caribbean, "toast" is specifically associated with reggae. It is "rapping", either following scripted, or as you suggest, ad hoc, lyrics.

Someone, or a group such as a sports team, "being toast", i,e., "done", is a fairly common expression here in the US.
