After a busy 2018 where he released three projects at seven songs or less, Chicago rapper tobi lou stepped up in a big way to release a 21-track, 77-minute album Live On Ice.
Tobi lou brings the Chicago soul and swagger to this album. He switches flows periodically, mixing between earnest songwriting and some more up-tempo rapping that matches the bangers on this record. He dives into many of the issues that the modern youth of America grapple with like meaningless relationships, phone addiction and struggling with money.
He addresses a modern, first world struggle, saying despondently on “Smiling On My Phone,” “I be spending too much time on my fu-Cking phone." If you are reading this on your phone, it is a problem starring you right in the face.
