Despite working twice with Travis Scott on his sophomore album Life Of A Don, Houston rapper Don Toliver wanted his current work to be about him discovering his own sound, exerting creative control, and having things go his way.

The album is now officially available, and fans are already gushing over the production, Don’s harmonies, and everything about LOAD.

Don stated that this is his best effort yet while discussing the album’s creation with Zane Lowe on New Music Daily on Apple Music 1.

“Yeah, it’s absolutely my best work, my best work right now, man,” the musician said of Life Of A Don. “Wow, this has been a crazy process.

I’m not going to lie to you. Making hundreds of songs and then picking 16 of them out of a hat is one of the most insane things somebody can do, so it’s been a ride, man.

This record has been a part of my life for a long time. To be honest, Cactus Jack as a whole aided me, but with this album in particular, I did a lot of creative control, a lot of it, which makes me very proud of this album in particular because I just went full-fledged Don mode and just took it upon myself to try to make this album as good as I could possibly make it in the time frame I had.

Speaking about his extensive work with Travis Scott over the years, Don said, “It’s simple math with us, man. We listen to the beat. We just go straight at it. Travis will jump straight in.

I jump straight in, and we just feed off of each other’s energy every time. It’s always a good vibe.”

Don also worked with Baby Keem on the new song “OUTERSPACE,” explaining to Zane Lowe that they had great chemistry in the studio, saying, “Man, I just love Keem’s energy.

I love him as a person. He’s just one of those real artists to me, and I definitely wanted some of his artistry on this album, so I’m super excited for everybody to hear ‘OUTERSPACE’. It’s one of my favorites on the album, and I just love Keem’s work, man.”
