4TRK MIND

Already a DJBooth fave thanks to his production work on featured records by West Coast phenom Fashawn and many others, Exile steps out from behind the boards to make his Booth debut as a rapper on new single When Nothing’s Left. Of course, he still does his thing on the production tip, chopping Otis Redding’s That’s How Strong My Love Is into a characteristically gritty, soulful backdrop as he and frequent collaborator Blu trade confident, good-humored bars. While the overarching theme is the collaborators’ drive to be the best in the hip-hop game, the arguable highlight is an off-the-cuff exchange on their fond memories of shoplifting: ”Y’all actin’ like you never switched price tags in the mall.” “I did, and plus I stole ‘em all.” “Yeah, I got caught and told ‘em off.” “And I still got away with a Ralph Lauren polo on.” Time to weigh in, readers: are you itching to hear more from Exile the emcee? Plenty more soulful beats and high-caliber bars await on the headliner’s 4TRK MIND LP, dropping tomorrow (October 4).
