Many, if not most musical artists possess talents that can’t be constrained to a single genre box—and Cryptic Wisdom is a case in point. To showcase the underappreciated diversity of his skillset, the Tucson emcee has selected, as his latest single, a joint that features no rapping whatsoever. Instead, Fall From Grace (a Booth-exclusive world premiere) finds him eulogizing a past love in a sung vocal style that straddles the line between R&B and alternative rock. Sinima Beats echoes his eclectic approach behind the boards, layering moody guitar riffs over a hip-hop rhythm and tying the cut together with a sampled female hook. Michael Shahin directs the accompanying visuals. X’s & O’z is scheduled for independent release on August 5. Fans who pre-order the set now will receive instant downloads of three tracks: Talking to Myself, Problem and Man in the Mirror.
