C. Hutch - Avenue Magic
There may not be any wizards’ academies in South Central Los Angeles, but Booth newcomer C. Hutch did manage to pick up a little Avenue Magic during his time in the mean streets. What type of spells does he have up his sleeve, you may ask? As Hutch explains on this newly-leaked mixtape cut, he’s got quite a few enviable powers: he can make cash appear out of thin air, he can gain respect with a wave of his hand, he can even hustle in his sleep! On top of all that, he’s got some impressive multitasking abilities—in addition to showcasing his skills on the mic with three verses’ worth of punchline-laced braggadocio, he steps behind the boards to deliver chopped-sample instrumental whose leisurely rhythm couldn’t be better matched to his swagger-drenched flow. C. Hutch may not have a Hogwarts diploma, but he comes with a brand of street magic we can all believe in; for more spellbinding tracks, grab a copy of Black Market Music when it hits the net September 1st.
