Astro - Don’t Test Me
Astro may be young but, like the Wu-Tang Clan, he ain’t nothin’ to f**k wit. On a new single off his next mixtape, the 17-year-old Brooklynite and X Factor alumnus offers potential foes some free advice: “Don’t Test Me, you’d better move over.” In addition to characteristically dazzling bars from the up-and-coming lyricist, this joint boasts boardwork by a bona fide hip-hop icon: DJ Shadow provides the record’s gritty, sampled production. Garth von Glehn‘s official visuals round out the package. Fans will be able to find Don’t Test Me and many more bangers on Astro’s currently-untitled forthcoming mixtape, scheduled to drop digitally sometime this fall. In the meantime, debut street album Deadbeats & Lazy Lyrics is still available for free streaming and download right here in The DJBooth.
