ZeeK ft. Soupa (of Green Street) - Cold Drinks
Having one of those Wednesdays that feels like a Friday? Can’t believe it’ll be another two days before you can kick back and decompress? Take a deep breath, click “play” and allow Booth newcomer ZeeK to transport you to a world of “Cold Drinks, cute chicks with stilettos…” (Or, um, buff dudes in tight T-shirts, if you prefer). Every bit as refreshing as its title would suggest, this newly-released mixtape single finds the Boston rapper-producer doing double-duty on the mic and behind the boards, cooking up a head-noddably chill boom-bap beat (I feel like there’s a classic break/sample lurking down there, but I can’t put my finger on it.) to back his debauched, but eminently smooth snapshots of the nightlife. Green Street emcee Soupa commandeers the mic on the middle, interlacing his own suave game-spitting with chuckle-worthy trash talk: “Cosby lifestyle, y’all be softer than some pudding.” Has Cold Drinks left you thirsty for more chill beats and dope rhymes from this talented up-and-comer? Then stay tuned for further details on ZeeK’s yet-unscheduled new street album, Good Intentions.
