“You think they’re ready?” Toliver asked his DJ. “Yeah, they’re home team. We’re at home now.”
“I love that.” Said Toliver after noticing the massive pit forming in the center of the crowd. “Make it bigger, wider. Cut all the lights off, I want this to go crazy.”
Toliver's nasally, high pitched voice makes him one of the most unique singers in the genre today, in a good way. His voice helps amplify his character away from what you normally get from hip-hop singers, which usually lands them in the R&B realm. But Toliver uses his tone to set a more eerie and somewhat trippy cadence into his songs that put a fresh new twist on the signature slowed down sounds of Houston Hip-Hop.
Rolling though a lengthy 20-plus song setlist of highs and lows, Toliver set the bar high for his first night of Houston shows. This gives those in attendance a good preview of what's to come, for the H-Town native will be back for his Cactus Jack Records brother / Missouri City superstar Travis Scott's Astroworld Festival in just a few weeks.
The Life Of A Don Tour celebrates the release of Toliver's second studio album Life Of A Don, the follow up to his 2020 debut release Heaven & Hell. With the steady release of his own positively received music, as well as the variety of collaborative songs with high-profiled artists, such as being featured on Kanye West's recently released Donda and Eminem's 2020, Music To Be Murdered By, we can clearly start to see this hometown artist's rise to stardom as he deservingly makes his way to the top.
