DJ Pain1 ft. Tek, Money B, Scott Knoxx, Grand Daddy IU & MC Starr - Now You Know

Posted 5 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
DJ Pain1
Album:
The Waiting Game

Booth readers may not have been familiar with the scorching sounds of DJ Pain1 prior to the explosive impact of Roots earlier this month, but… well… Now You Know. With introductions out of the way, I don’t need to tell you how excited you should be for the Booth-exclusive world premiere of the Madison, Wisconsin DJ/producer’s latest single. Like its predecessor, this selection finds a lineup of lyrically-acute old and new-schoolers going in over some gritty, retro-informed boardwork. Unleashing their most potent ammunition over the headliner’s chopped-soul boardwork are, in order, Smif-N-Wessun emcee Tek, Digital Underground alum Money-B, Milwaukee repper Scott Knoxx, Queens vet Grand Daddy IU and Madison buzzmaker MC Starr. To top it all off, Pain flips iconic samples by Jeru the Damaga, (Ya Playin Yaself), Nas (It Ain’t Hard to Tell) and more on the hook. Who spit the standout verse? With this lineup, I expect a lively debate. Whatever your opinion, though, don’t miss the freshness in store on Pain1’s Booth-sponsored The Waiting Game street album, set to hit our mixtape page for free streaming and download May 10.
