Watch Now: Tobe Nwigwe - Tabernacle (Live)

Tobe Nwigwe comes through with a lesson on execution and preparedness as he drops off a new visual experience despite being on the road for The Extension tour alongside Fat and LaNell Grant. Rather than fall back on excuses, the Houston-bred Tobe personifies the no days off, permanent grind mode mentality. There’s a reason his shows are selling out. There’s a reason the music is getting noticed – and praised – more and more each week. And his work ethic and execution of the vision has a lot to do with it.

The Toby Canning-shot “Tabernacle (Live)” visual was captured in the same space as Tobe’s recent “What It’s For (Live)” release, demonstrating the steps he took prior to embarking on tour to keep the consistency flowing. And, with the tour successfully underway, it only makes sense he drops off another little preview of what a live set will be like. With Nell doing her thing alongside the group of backing musicians, Tobe delivers his charismatic prose with confidence and conviction – the words find their way from the video, reaching and resonating within the depth of listeners’ beings. Kicking things off with a few spoken word bars, the energy of the sonic backdrop and Tobe’s delivery picks up quickly before erupting in an all out onslaught of powerful insight and a rattling performance of the record originally released as part of last year’s More Originals. Filling the space of “Tabernacle” with an abundance of thought-provoking lyricism laced with spiritual, religious and truth-based commentary, the live performance serves to accent and breath even more life into the already powerful piece of art.

Real quick: Tobe utilizes the word “liturgical” and does so seamlessly. This man is different than your favorite rapper and it shows.

Be sure to cop your tickets to see Tobe, Fat and Nell live – and do so before tickets sell out, ’cause each show so far has reached capacity. With Three Originals out now, you can get up on all music, merch and more here.
