When I wake up In Da Morning, the first item on my agenda is breakfast, and the second is coffee – chasing paper doesn’t cross my mind until about noon, and that’s on a good day. Tone Trump, however, is all about money from the moment he rolls out of bed. On the first official single off his forthcoming debut, the Philly up-and-comer showcases his dedication to the daily grind (as well as the nightly shine). Producer Steve Morales, gives the cut a determined vibe with midtempo percussion and subdued brass fanfare. As far as subject matter is concerned, In Da Morning doesn’t stray far from the “rap mission statement,” formula – in addition to addressing his grind, his money, and his high-rolling nightlife, Trump tells off the haters, shouts out his crew, and touts his sexual prowess – but the rapper rounds the lyrical bases with a panache all his own. New Blood has yet to secure a spot on Top Notch‘s release calender, but In Da Morning may be just the thing to get the ball rolling.
