Wordspit - Joystick Madness
Trips to the arcade used to be a religious experience. If you had a bag full of quarters on a Sunday there was nothing but opportunity and bliss in front of you. Once (just once) I threw my skills down on a Mario Bros. game for 5 straight hours – one of the proudest moments in my young life. It just so happens that Brooklyn-based rapper Wordspit shares my sentiments when it comes to video games, but he has no plans of relinquishing his console crown anytime soon. On his DJBooth premiere track, Joystick Madness, Word’s energy shows a young emcee very confident in his craft as he damn near hyperventilates while spitting bar after bar over an equally forceful beat from J Face. Wordspit’s bob-and-weave style of delivery on the track only further amplifies the production’s fast-paced action, resulting in a track worthy of placement on Tekken. If you’re digging Wordspit on this manic track, check his latest mixtape, The Coolest BBoi Stance, out now.
