From a production and musical standpoint, True to Self, is a well-executed work of hip-hop, ebbing and flowing organically throughout – from the atmospheric introduction and mellow vibes of Rain on Me (Intro), to the darker mood of Blowing Smoke and the latinesque rhythms of Run Me Dry – resulting in the album almost feeling like a single, hour-long song. Tiller’s vocal performance is consistently strong, whether he is rapping or singing in an R&B inspired fashion, with the only faults being the occasional overuse of effects on his voice.
