Having spit about his taste in women and his love for his (adopted) home state on previous features, Philly-to-Los Angeles transplant Tayyib Ali tells his own story on the latest leak off his sophomore mixtape. On Do It, a Chipmunk-soul beat by Teddy Roxpin bumps in the background as Ali describes how he left behind a life of security in order to pursue hip-hop stardom. The artist’s latest street album, Keystone State of Mind, dropped April 25; fans are also encouraged to check out the official video for Do It, viewable here.
