El Prez ft. Aleon Craft - In the Kitchen
Aside from a handful of guest features, West Coast representative El Prez has been relatively scarce of late; his last solo cut, Dedication, hit our front page way back in October of 2011. Where’s he been in the meantime? As he reveals on his latest feature, he’s been hard at work, ”... cooking up that crack In the Kitchen.” And it just so happens that Booth readers get the first taste of what he’s serving up. Making its world premiere right here on our front page, the inaugural leak off Prez’ next mixtape finds the freestyle series alumnus waxing braggadocious over a uniquely addictive instrumental by Pitchshifters, the beat crew recently heard producing Jadakiss’ Turn Up. Backed by their minimal kick-snare rhythm and an impressive variety of cash register-related sound effects (if you listen close, you can even hear the receipt printing), Prez flaunts his sky-high stacks and female appeal. Fellow freestyle alum Aleon Craft guests, notably making a bid for Rap Lines That Make No Sense inclusion with the boast, “I don’t exist like Pluto.” Feeling it? More freshness awaits on LEADERSH!T, the artist’s debut project with Small Chronic Break/Honour Role Music (Shawn Chrystopher‘s label).
