A$hton - Knighty Knight

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
Buddah SPK
Album:
Knighty Four

As of my writing this, it isn’t even 11:30 AM, but that doesn’t stop Booth newcomer A$hton from telling us “Knighty Knight” on his current mixtape single. (It originally dropped last January, but is getting another push in the new year.) With that said, ‘90s heads shouldn’t sleep on the record, which finds the Detroit-born, Orlando-based emcee channeling some serious boom-bap vibes. Buddah SK‘s ringing keyboard chords and laid-back breakbeat set the stage for some fittingly nostalgic bars from the unsigned up-and-comer. Looking back on his elementary school years, he reveals himself to have been a precocious kid in more ways than one: “Plotting my next moves even in the fourth grade / Saw my first boobs, music room, backstage.” A$hton’s Knighty Four LP is slated to drop digitally in February. In the meantime, of course, fans can keep it locked to The DJBooth for the latest song releases.
