LA-ready in its summer style and 21st century concept, Tootie’s Lifestyle accesses the confidence and bragging rights of the contemporary hip hop scene, whilst throwing in an offbeat reggae rhythm and an admittedly impressive vocal flow during the verses.
Leading with a simple and slightly familiar yet catchy hook, Lifestyle blends rap and melody in a way that leaves its key line lingering after the music has stopped.
Introduce the verses for a storyline and performance that broaden the track’s reach, and a feature from Marcc to weave in further dynamic, and the single effectively elevates itself above the indie competition of a similar realm.
Blending the pop comfort of a catchy hook, with increasingly fast-paced bars and a more complex and personal hint of a storyline, Lifestyle feels relevant to the current scene yet also introduces the artist Tootie in a way that’s likely to hit with impact. Hopefully future releases showcase this balance all the more so and allow his audience to grow as a result.
