Vallejo, California artist Tota delivers a profound outlook on growing up in his hometown on his new song/video titled “Downhill”. The song is built on sombre/soulful soundscapes that evoke nostalgia/sadness as the rapper paints vivid images on the adversity he and other individuals like him have faced. He also brings in singer Racquel Tubbs to deliver the hook home and ends the track with a voicemail message from his Mother concerned about her son’s whereabouts.
