Drawing inspiration from the likes of Kanye West, N*E*R*D*, and Amy Winehouse, Tony paints the portrait of an aspiring 20 year old rapper in New York City, experimenting with spirituality while documenting the early road to success. The tape itself is a sort of abstract commentary on the current state of music, its influence on his life, and where he vows to take his music career. Sonically, this work has a great deal of variety sure to please a broad range of listener's ears. It has a little bit of everything- substance and introspection for fans of the deeper side of hip-hop, yet it comes equipped with bangers and a handful of radio ready hits.
