Jackie Chain ft. Rittz, Jarren Benton & Young Scolla - Certified Sh*t
What could be better than a fresh new feature from the second most hilariously-named artist in DJBooth.net history? No, not one from the first most hilariously-named artist – though I do eagerly await the return of Fidel Cashflow. Instead, how about some Certified Sh*t from Jackie Chain, plus three Booth-acclaimed guests? The latest leak off the beatsmiths’ 808 Experiment Vol. 3 mixtape, this cut finds SMKA cooking up a sizzling percussion/synth backdrop for the lyrical stunting of Chain and a few fresh cohorts. The hyperkinetic flows of Slumerican emcee Rittz (of White Jesus fame) and Huffing Glue With Hasselhoff rapper Jarren Benton prove perfectly-matched to the Southern-fried boardwork, and Young Scolla (another freestyle alum) adds a dash of Motown flair in his equally energetic closing verse. So, does this joint earn the DJBooth.net Certification of Excellence? As always, it’s up to you to issue the final verdict.
