Sean Tizzle‘s “The Journey” album, which birthed his unbeatable run in the industry was released in 2014, had another big influence on the scene, a golden cut that replicated the template pushed forward by the other albums but now heavily mirrored the urban sound and style of his own time.
There are few albums that can slightly match ”The Journey,’ albums like Wizkid‘s ‘Superstar’ Wande Coal’s ”Mushin2MoHits” 2baba‘s ”Face2Face” and the likes that are filled with awe-inspiring nostalgic reactions, and they stand out as the alpha and omega projects of their respective eras.
His songwriting and singing abilities were near-flawless, and at a day when the former was no longer regarded as a valuable art form, it was refreshing to hear someone who was truly thinking about what he was saying.
