Introduced to our readership via September’s highly-acclaimed Spartacus, Staten Island rhymesayer Tyrone Briggs makes his triumphant return to The DJBooth with another fresh song release off his forthcoming EP. On street single Cold, a Booth-exclusive world premiere, beatsmith Sean Nathaniel serves up an appropriately icy arpeggiated-synth instrumental as Briggs delivers bars jam-packed with witty trash talk and braggadocio. (Standout line: “I’m so ahead of my time I could probably reminisce’ bout my future.”) Has this frosty cut left you shivering? Then you’d best grab a sweater, ‘cause it’s only gonna get colder when #ScatteredThought drops digitally on Tuesday, October 29.
