"With his patterned enunciations and rhythmic commentary reminiscent of an early Childish Gambino, the messages throughout his multi-layered orchestrations provide an entertaining platform for connection and influence." – AfroPunk
“ToBy’s vibe is so real and relatable I can’t help but get sucked into his poetically poignant world. It’s a moody and melancholy production but the vocals oscillate between resigned despair and visceral angst.”– Nest HQ
"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 tackle the spectrum from either point." - The Cabbages
