The Gent$ - Award Tour [Premiere]
Is it a little early for The Gent$, the Windy City trio who brought us Snake Skin Tie back in January, to be planning their first Award Tour? Well, yeah – but, then again, there’s nothing wrong with dreaming big. On their latest single, making its world premiere right here in the Booth, emcees Pugs Atomz and Ill Legit and singer Wes Restless paint a vivid lyrical portrait of the swanky gig of their dreams – beautiful women everywhere, free fried chicken and corn on the cob served in the lobby, tasteful bowties… – as beatsmith Vanysh rolls out the red carpet with an appropriately exultant blend of sampled brass and soulful backing vocals. Here’s hoping that the trio’s latest mixtape, the DJBooth.net-sponsored High Profile, brings them closer to the lofty dreams described here, when it hits our front page April 28. And, guys, I’m gonna be on the guest list when this all goes down, right?
