Reminiscent of the lo-fi feel of producer/DJ Nujabes and the looming melancholia and booming trap sounds of contemporaries like Travis Scott and Metro Boomin, The Outside’s production serves to blend the tranquility of the peaceful outdoors with the chaos and dystopia of modern rap. It builds into a collage of feelings across space and time, crafted with layers that further expose themselves on each listen. ToBy creates a form of sonic weather that puts you in his own personal ecosystem, “The outside is the center and all of my stories and creative impulses are catalyzed by its presence.”
“The EP is full of laid back, introspective, yet catchy and party ready tracks about a range of unique topics such as Egyptian gods, heartbreak, freedom from soul-crushing monotony, the psychological toll of success, and doubts, fears, wonders, and worries in the face of impending mortality.” – All Access

“Over instrumentals by producer oebeats, he approaches a wide range of personal topics and introspective concerns on his project The Outside. There is melancholy and there is joy, and judging from these songs he’s unafraid of tackling the spectrum from either point.” – Cabbages

“The rapper reconnects with his musical roots – and himself – in his new EP, The Outside, which becomes an avenue of exploration for everything from relationships to the stresses of fame to the uncertainty of mortality. Through it all, he recognizes the importance of staying true to himself and his art.” – Cliche Magazine

The Outside is the perfect accompaniment to your Summer, no matter how you are forced to spend it. Take your car, get this on your playlist, and drift effortlessly along as you drive through the masked masses. Have yourself a chilled out, socially distant disco.” – FourCulture

“ToBy is one of the brightest minds in entertainment today. His music speaks to the struggles we all experience and channels those commonalities into songs that soothe the soul. He isn’t trying to convince you that your problems don’t matter, but instead, ToBy aims to provide comfort as you go through life” – Haulix Daily

“Blending tranquility, chaos and dystopia, ToBy has created his best collection yet. Dealing with a mix of emotions and other feelings, his tracks contain many different layers. Take a look into his life by giving this album some of your time.” – Imperfect Fifth

“The Outside is a beautifully-crafted EP that blends ToBy’s external sources of inspiration with his inner monologue gorgeous as the music and production on The Outside is, where this release truly shines is its lyrics and the themes ToBy is willing to tackle along the way.” – MEAWW

The Outside is a powerful declaration of self for ToBy, a testament to his talents… You can almost picture him sitting alone in a forest, meditating by himself. It’s a gift in itself that he’s willing to share some of his enlightenment with.” – Mixed Frequencies

““The EP not only showcases ToBy‘s talent, but it exemplifies his versatility and honesty with clever lyrics and a refreshing new sound. Through his honest and intimate lyrics and his effortless flow, he dives deep into relevant themes and struggles. The project allows him to take listeners along on a journey of self-reflection and self-discovery.” – Play Too Much

“When the surprise goes over well you’re guaranteed an amazing time ahead. Toby’s new EP is just that” – THAT Mag
