West Coast rapper Game and TOBi are keeping the warm vibes coming all winter 2020. The pair have linked up for their new “City Blues” anthem. Listen and comment below!
TOBi releases the “City Blues” remix featuring Grammy-Award winner, The Game, produced by Free n Losh. TOBi continues to showcase his “unapologetic soul music” weaving in and out of bars while The Game delivers a painful narrative of trauma. Originally released in January 2019 conceptually the song was inspired by Marvin Gaye’s “Inner City Blues.” The single received critical acclaim from Tiffany Haddish, Jamie Foxx and everyone’s favorite Uncle Snoop calling TOBi the voice of the culture and of the youth.
“This song is special to me because it’s so honest. Hearing The Game’s verse for the first time was unreal and the picture he paints is vividly intense. These are the realities of the world we live in. No filters, no apologies. It’s amazing as artists that we can release these experiences to the world through music,” says TOBi.
Less than a year ago TOBi released his debut studio album, STILL which garnered high praises from media such as: i-D, BET, Billboard, Paper & L’Officiel. The album explored the multiple facets of masculinity and the vulnerability he went through shortly after immigration. STILL’s production largely came from Toronto’s Free n Losh, Grammy-winning !llmind as well as a return link up from Take A Daytrip punctuated by the album’s only feature VanJess.
