Fortilive ft. Skyzoo - Jim Kelly

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
!llmind
Album:
I vs. I

For those well-versed in Blaxploitation and/or kung-fu cinema Jim Kelly needs no introduction; best known for playing inner-city karate teacher-turned-fugitive Williams in Bruce Lee classic Enter the Dragon, he was a silver-screen staple throughout the 1970s. On their latest single and first Booth feature, underground group Fortilive does their best impression of martial-arts mastery, punching and kicking their way through two verses’ worth of aggressively braggadocious lyricism as group member and Booth-approved beatsmith !llmind serves up a head-nodding, lightly-funky sampled groove. Lending a hand on the guest tip is none other than Ill’s Live From the Tape Deck partner-in-rhyme, Skyzoo; in between Slo-Mo and Mushmouf‘s hard-hitting verses, the two-fisted Brooklynite smacks down his rivals and threatens to put snitches’ necks in a noose. If you got a kick out of Jim Kelly, stay tuned – Fortilive’s debut studio album, I vs. I, will be available right here at DJBooth.net for free streaming and download on January 30.
