TOBi rounded up some of Toronto's finest to deliver the "Toronto remix" of his 2019 track, "24." This posse cut features verses from some phenomenal Canadian-repping rappers such as Jazz Cartier, Shad, and Haviah Mighty, as well as fellow Torontonian guitarist, Ejji Smith. In the same vein as the original, the Toronto remix tackles the issues of racial profiling and police brutality. "24 (Toronto Remix)" appears on the updated edition of TOBi's 2019 album, STILL, which dropped on last Friday (May 1st).
To celebrate the remix, TOBi also dropped some Kit Weyman-directed accompanying visuals that take the viewer on a virtual tour of Toronto, showcasing the reality that so many black folks face living in the city. “For this video, I welcomed the mind of artists who are pushing back against societal norms and making a statement that we are more than our expectations,” TOBi said. “I took the opportunity to aim at changing the narratives that have existed before we were born, especially as it relates to Toronto.” Check out the "24 (Toronto Remix)" track and visuals below and let us know what you think.
I ain’t even flagged up
I ain’t even ganged up
Mighty game no handguns
I don’t need your handcuffs
