HipHopDX

The golden-voiced singer from Houston has received plenty of hype in the first quarter of 2020; on Heaven Or Hell, he proves he can live up to it.

Although the project heavily draws on Travis Scott’s style, Don Toliver’s high vocals create a whole new sound whilst still paying homage to his mentor. It’s a great solo introduction into the industry.

Heaven or Hell ? Dear Don, no matter what happens, you will go to heaven.

The expectation around the MVP nominee Don Toliver was quite impressive, maybe too strong unfortunately, maybe that's what can give this impression of disappointment at first. Personally I think that by giving him time, he ended up seducing me. It's important to keep in mind that Don Toliver is still a young rapper, in the sense of experience, who really started his career two years ago. His first mixtape presents a ... read more

Well that was disappointing. I had a high hopes going into this album considering how much I really liked Donny Womack but after finally hearing it I was extremely disappointed

The production isn't as good as it was on Donny Womack, don't get me wrong it's good and it has some cool traits to it but feels very lifeless and it just kinda blends together and becomes non-distinct after the first three tracks. Don Toliver adding little to no energy into these beats a lot of the time doesn't help ... read more
