“Long Story Short” summarizes some of the challenges and joys Tommy has experienced in life.

Tommy says that even though they’ve contributed to who he’s become, the events in his life don’t define who he is; rather, they’ve led him to this point of greatness. This is an open artist who’s in tune with his emotions. So, stream Yeloboi Tommy’s “Long Story Short” today to learn how to get lost into yours.
