Dre Biggity - Pump Ya Brakes
Dre Biggity may be a familiar face in the Booth – he brought us Wu-Tang homage CREAM just last week – but those not as tuned-in as our readers may need a heads-up. On newly-leaked mixtape cut Pump Ya Brakes, the West Coast up-and-comer gives those who haven’t gotten the memo fair warning that he has his pedal to the floor and he’s headed straight to the top of the game. D.C. beatsmith Best Kept Secret takes inspiration from his hometown’s distinctive brand of percussion-driven funk, delivering a Go-Go rhythm accented with orchestral stabs and atmospheric synths as the 22-year-old emcee flaunts his skills, his dedication to his craft, and his female appeal in three braggadocio-packed verses. With larger-than-life rhymes and banging boardwork to match, this track is sure to fulfill its intended purpose and get listeners buzzing, but is Dre Biggity truly the most focused and driven youngster in the business? We’ll get a better idea next Monday (Oct. 26th), when the rapper’s latest street album, The Diaper Dandy, hits the ‘net.
