Bizniz Kid ft. XV - I’m Different
In a marketplace as crowded as today’s rap game, standing out from the pack is absolutely crucial. And what better way to prove that you’re different than by saying “I’m Different”? OK, the title of Booth newcomer Bizniz Kid‘s latest single wouldn’t mean anything if the Kansan emcee didn’t bring anything fresh and new to the table – fortunately, the record itself bears out his assertion. Backed by his own production, a spacey melange of layered synths and relaxed percussion, the rapper flaunts his creativity in a blunted yet engaging flow (“A guy like me come up with all kind of sh*t / That’s what happens when you mix music with marijuana, b*tch!”), and shifting into a CuDi-esque monotone for the sung hook. Fellow Sunflower State representative, freestyle series alum and reader fave XV takes over on the back end; in his closing verse, Vizzy heightens the stoner-friendly vibe with intergalactic imagery and Pink Floyd name-drops. This joint is certainly out-of-the-ordinary, but it it different in a good way? You tell me, Booth readers. Those digging it should stay tuned for the latest on Cool Juice, due out sometime in late fall.
