The first track of the album is called “Lately” that creates a chill sound for you to listen to. “My Girl” featuring Magnolia Chop and Rossy is a good feeling track for the ladies. “Freebasing” is a sample of LL Cool J’s “Doin It” and New Orleans Beats. He carries the beat well as he flow throughout this track. “Some Nights” is a track that allows you to visualize the street life in the city. “PVO” is the last track on the project. Hurt Sum’n spits lyrics that becomes a motivation of himself and his life. The production becomes one of our favorites.

Overall the album immolates New Orleans fully with the artists choice of productions. While the artists gives nothing but flows and lyrics, you don’t hear any adlibs. This is rare with today’s artists. He made sure you can hear what he says more than anything. He kept it real for sure, not switching up on his truth as a New Orleans native/artist.

He is a force to be reckon with. Tone expresses that the people are thirsty for the real. His ability to create, produce, write, actually rap, and sing separates him from other artists.

When asked how does he feels about independent artists coming out at this moment he feels as though no one artist is “INDEPENDENT” but perhaps unsigned.
