Chrome Cats - Catch Me

Sir C
Album:

From the scarily precocious, 17-year-old Earl Sweatshirt to 15-year-old Booth fave Gameboi, it’s starting to seem like prodigiously talented teen rappers have formed a conspiracy to make me feel old. (I turn 23 tomorrow, and have yet to cut a single rap record.) In furtherance of this trend, I’m proud to introduce up-and-coming duo Chrome Cats, making their Booth debut with the world premiere of mixtape inclusion Catch Me. On this breezy underground banger, beatsmith Sir C sets a wistfully determined mood behind the boards, layering woozy synths over a clattering breakbeat as Korland “KJ” Sims (17) rocks the mic, expressing his drive to achieve musical greatness in bars laced with poetic turns of phrase “...I intertwine with mind to generate the grind and out comes the shine.” Sister Jamilia Sims (14) turns in an equally impressive performance, showcasing her vocal chops on a tunefully fresh hook. Think Chrome Cats are going places? Then don’t miss the Vallejo representatives’ Flight to Paradise street album when it hits the ‘net in late October/early November.
