The Game Assists TOBi With A Chilling New Verse To A Heartfelt Song About The Blues

#Music Born in Lagos, Nigeria, MC/singer TOBi moved from Africa to Ottawa when he was 9 years old. There, the man raised as Oluwatobi Ajibolade began writing songs and poetry. As a teen, TOBi found his way into battle rapping. An old clip of TOBi battling a young Tory Lanez, who also soon found himself honing his singing and rapping skills together on wax, <a href="https://ift.tt/2TPWLyS" target="_blank" rel="noopener">still floats around on the Internet</a>. In 2016, TOBi released his first EP, <a href="https://ift.tt/38ycPcG" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><em>FYi</em></a>. Last year, the African-Canadian dropped his debut studio album, <a href="https://ift.tt/3aDfIKO" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><em>STILL</em></a>, via Same Plate Entertainment and Sony Music. One of <em>STILL</em>'s standouts is the powerful, Soul-driven record, <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nbpy-rG-w3o" target="_blank" rel="noopener">"City Blues."</a> The track boasts a somber, piano driven instrumental from production duo, Free n Losh. Lyrically, TOBi delves into the ships and struggles he and his family endured as a youth. Now, TOBi has enlisted the assistance of Compton's The Game for a remix to last year's original cut. <a href="https://ift.tt/30LJNmW" target="_blank" rel="noopener">The Game Describes His Shootout With 50 Cent In Detail (Video)</a> To open, Ajibolade raps eloquently about navigating and surviving in the streets he grew up in. "<em>It's hard chilling with ni**as who only talk about bitches and never 'bout business / Misogynistic 'til they sisters get involved / Then it's vengeance in the name of feminism, of course / Bragging 'bout who they piped down in high school, fool / What about right now? / Oh, you wanna fight, clown? / Want me to put the mic down / And leave me Mike Brown, light brown soaked in the concrete / Just beyond God's reach? / So tell me what's next? / Boys in blue paint the town red from all the bloodshed / Still interrogating myself / Tell me, how do crocodile tears fall from dry wells? / You can't confuse fedora boy for a suspect</em>." <iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/LtcJx9VHrEc" width="730" height="410" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe> The Game follows with mutual intent, rapping methodically about overcoming adversity of his own. However, Game's final verse that sticks to the ribs with a gut-wrenchingly unforgettable tale. The Doctor's Advocate reminisces his teenage years, spitting about shooting his own friend to save another from getting raped. "<em>Walking through the grocery store the other day / I ran into Tanisha, she was happy to see my face / Let me tell you 'bout faith / We was 16, tenth grade, murder was the case / She was datin' Chico, we was at my grand-mama place / It was me, Tanisha, Chico, Dan and lil' Trey / We was drinkin', smokin', I fell asleep / I woke up 'cause I heard Tanisha scream and so I peeped / In the bathroom door, Chico was just watchin' her / While Dan and lil' Trey was climbin' on top of her / So I went and grabbed my pops gun / And this the part of the story where you grow some nuts, if you ain't got none / I cocked that b*tch, then I popped / Everybody froze, then the ni**a Trey dropped son / I shot my own homie in the Grape's, I just couldn't let T get r*ped</em>." <a href="https://ift.tt/2QjrzWO" target="_blank" rel="noopener">The Game &amp; Anderson .Paak’s Collaboration Is A New Westside Story (Video)</a> TOBi was also a featured guest on The Game's most recent album, <a href="https://ift.tt/2RhlCtI" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><em>Born 2 Rap</em></a>.
