Another Road, the introspective lead single off GQ‘s next independent full-length, met a surprisingly chilly reception when it hit our front page back in May. Unfazed, the West Coast emcee bounces back with a follow-up that’s considerably more upbeat in tone. On Count’em Up, Jamla boss 9th Wonder serves up a smooth, sampled beat to back GQ’s lyrical reflections on the grind, as well as those of Nipsey Hussle and labelmate Rapper Big Pooh. Rated Oakland is slated to hit online retailers Tuesday, June 24, at which point it will also be available for streaming and purchase in The DJBooth.
