For being a MIXTAPE Tommie really flexes by sounding so natural with his rhyme and bringing back 90’s style Hip Hop. Conscious Hip Hop is what it’s all about when it comes to pushing quality sound to the masses and Tommie definitely understands that. He allow his music not just to be heard but to absorb and influence any listener to become more than just a new fan but a true supporter.
