Jabee x Thelonius Martin - Penny For Your Thought/Sarayu Rao
When you’ve been away from the Booth for as long as Jabee—his last feature hit our front page in December of 2012—it’s in your interest to come back with a bang. Today, the Oklahoma City phenom makes a suitably grand re-entrance with his latest single, a two-part cut which also happens to be an exclusive world premiere. Penny for Your Thoughts, the first and longer portion, features the headliner delivering politically-charged bars over a jazzy, head-noddable arrangement by Booth-approved beatsmith Thelonious Martin. About two-thirds of the way through, the record transitions into a more upbeat, brassy coda dedicated to the actress Sarayu Rao. Clearly, Jabee and Martin make a formidable pair—which is why they’ve teamed up to create an entire joint EP. Keep your browsers locked for the latest on Deliver Us From Evil, which currently lacks a drop date.
