Tobe Nwigwe's one of the more exciting talents coming out of Houston. On his newest project, moMINTs, the rapper makes clear that a lot of other big names feel the same way. On the EP, Nwigwe enlists the talents of Pharrell Williams, EARTHGANG, 2 Chainz, Royce da 5'9, CeeLo Green, and more.
The sound of the 11-song project is as diverse as its array of features. Tobe's delivery can be breathless as he hollers over distorted blasts of beats. At other points, like on the Pharrell-produced "LORD FORGIVE ME," he raps in a gravelly mutter over a much more restrained instrumental. Nwigwe's wife, Fat, is all over the EP and proves to be a great addition. She's equally adept at singing strong hooks and rapping great verses.
