Album:
Lead By Example - Leaders Are Real People Too

Is it humanly possible to achieve a level of dopeness greater than that of Suga City emcee Goines? Considering the staggering amount of acclaim he received for his first feature, Jim Brown, I have my doubts – and, as the Arkansas native explains on world premiere number two off his forthcoming, Kevin Nottingham/DJBooth-sponsored street album, it might be dangerous to even try. On Dope as Me, the eight-bit synth-bass, chilled-out organ and subdued percussion of beatsmiths JP and Kwestion set the stage for Goines’ stern verses, which find him celebrating his own mic skills while warning the younger generation to keep their priorities straight: “To them n*ggas who be thinkin’ it’s cool, talkin’ bad to your teachers and suspended from school / you need to wise up before you’re gone and your time’s up.” Topped off with JP’s hook vocals, this cut and much more can be found on Lead By Example - Leaders Are Real People 2 when it drops on May 19. In the meantime, keep it locked – Goines’ next feature will be a Booth exclusive freestyle!
