Above, we’ve got the latest from Tone D, the Mike Millz-assisted “Shine.” Falling in between Spitta and UGK, the song speaks on getting money and keeping one’s nose as clean as they possibly can. It’s a simple premise that’s executed to perfection here. Everything about this song screams “throwback” in the best way possible. From the soulful, head nod-inducing beat to the laidback flows exhibited on the cut, “Shine” will take you back to the days where mixtapes reigned supreme and Third Coast and Midwest vibes ruled the airwaves. For me, that’s a good thing. I mean, there’s something about those types of songs that always get me going.
However, “Shine” is not just a simple trip down memory lane. Instead, listeners are given some tidbits on how to live their best lives. This is, of course, while still taking time to shine in their own right. Be it at the club, on the block or at a 9-5, “Shine” has something for every walk of hustler. Check it out above and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
