ToBy is back! And better than ever with his latest project "El Prado Blvd".
This 5-song EP leaves little to desire as the Miami-based rapper gifts audiences with an obvious exploration of mind and spirit- by way of rhythm and lyrics. Keeping to his familiar genre-defying sound, the 23 year old's lyrical fluidity and conversational cadence of a 2013 Gambino aids him in breaking the boundaries of mainstream artistry.
In this particular project, ToBy's influences are tangible; as both his personal aesthetic and music itself present a wide range of flavors as techno meets rock meets neo 90's hip hop DJ, meets anime. The combination is wonderfully dizzying- leaving you wanting more, fitting together into one balanced package.
The perfect soundtrack to summer, "El Prado Blvd" bounces between soothing melody to headbanging backtrack- creating a concoction of rhythm that leaves energy high and thrists quenched.Check out the new EP below!
