First Division ft. Torae - The Trade

Posted 2 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Marco Polo
Album:

Once you get a taste of the powerful breakbeat supporting First Division‘s debut feature, you should know exactly what to expect from the joint. If not, allow KRS-One to school you: “The boom-bap means just that / It means the return of the real hard beats and real rap.” On this freshly-minted mixtape single, making its world premiere right here in the Booth, a truncated sample from Return of the Boom Bap serves as springboard for some raw, defiantly real bars from Ontario-repping partners-in-rhyme Shylow and Expertise. Joining the headliners over Marco Polo‘s characteristically grimy throwback beat, Torae lends his gruff flow to the final verse. Like what you’re hearing? Then watch our pages for more fresh singles leading up to the free, Booth-exclusive release of First Division’s Critical Path Pt. 1 mixtape later this month.
