El Gant ft. Torae & DJ Devastate - Truth Hurts

Posted 2 years ago

The Truth Hurts—especially when you happen to be fake as f**k. On this freshly-minted single, his first feature since March’s Five One Eight, El Gant dumps a chilly bucket of realness over his so-called competitors’ heads, hoping to make ‘em evaporate into steam like the Wicked Witch of the West. Over JOAT‘s head-nodding sample work, the headliner and fellow NYC repper Torae deliver aggressive rhymes that hark back to the “Starter Jacket era” in which they both came up. DJ Devastate assists behind the wheels of steel. El’s Beast Academy LP is slated to drop Tuesday, June 10, but fans in the Booth will get a sneak peek the preceding Monday, when the project hits our front page as an exclusive stream.
