In Case I Don't Make It

What? The fact that we invited Has-Lo to spit for our Exclusive Freestyle Series with no prior Booth features, along with the dopeness of the entry itself, weren’t enough to convince you the Philly native had something special? Oh, ye of little faith! Regardless, after a listen to aptly-named mixtape single Fiber Optics, even the most cynical heads should see the light. As on Fucwitdat, the up-and-comer handles both production and mic duties, crafting a poignant, string-laced instrumental which he proceeds to lace with poetic insights on the topics of race and spirituality. With a sampled speech by onetime Black Panthers leader Eldridge Cleaver as his creative springboard, he weaves a dense web of imagery and allusion. Though the artist’s determination to reach “beyond the prosaic [and] into the esoteric” makes repeat listens a must, his commitment to equity and solidarity is crystal clear: “Civil rights on the mic, fightin’ for equality….” If this joint left you refreshed, more hot beats and lyrical substance await on Has-Lo’s In Case I Don’t Make It LP, released today and available now for online download.
