For the last few months, Florida rapper Luh Tyler has had all eyes on him.
The Tallahassee-based prodigy’s rise to the mainstream spotlight has been quicker than any artist we’ve seen in recent years. Songs such as “Back Flippin,” “Law & Order” and “Fat Racks” put Tyler on the map, as the Tallahassee native solidified his arrival with his debut mixtape, My Vision, on March 31.
Amid its release, the 17-year-old spitter followed up his debut with its “Reloaded” edition featuring Lil Uzi Vert, who appears on “Ransom.” Tyler is also slated to head on his first headlining tour for My Vision, presented by Rolling Loud, this summer.
At 22 tracks long and features from Trapland Pat, NoCap and more, not only was “Back Flippin” packaged into his debut tape, but saw his collab with Detroit’s Babytron “Fat Racks Pt. 2” (March 10) become a standout single for the record. Both Tyler and Tron are arguably hip-hop’s most innovative newbies and their unique styles and individualism are the reason for their extreme popularity.
Focusing on “Fat Racks Pt. 2,” Tyler flexes his laid-back vocals and veteran-like bars for about two minutes before we are greeted by the Shitty Boyz head honcho. Tron effortlessly slides over the beat, as if the song is his own — showing off his state-of-the-art flow and eccentric wordplay. In the track’s coinciding visual, Tyler and Tron are seen vibing in the studio and chilling in an ice rink flexing their cash, showing off their bling and singing along to the track.
The rest of My Vision is a flashy display of Tyler’s eccentric talent. It’s hard to believe he’s so young with a flow and vocals as mature as his. While My Vision move Tyler’s needle forward, there’s no doubt the potent youngster will keep his foot on the gas for years to come.
