Johnny Spanish - Up in the Clouds

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
Fresh Prodeuce
Album:
None (Promo Single)

Those who tuned in for the Kentucky buzzmaker’s previous Booth features, Got’ Damn Shame and Shining (Remix), know that Johnny Spanish is fly, but just how fly is he? As the up-and-comer puts it on his latest promo single, he’s “floatin’ Up in the Clouds. Though using altitude as a metaphor for style, skills and/or status is nothing new, Español keeps things as fresh as… well, I would have said “fresh produce,” if it weren’t for the fact that the beat, centered around an oddly-familiar pizzicato string sample, is actually by Fresh Prodeuce. The headliner does his part to keep listeners on their toes, hitting every point in the singing/sing-rapping/rapping continuum and dropping plenty of braggadocious quotables in the process: “I was raised in a lion’s den / take my sword, cut the head off Leviathan…” This joint isn’t attached to any project at the moment, but fans fiending for more Johnny Spanish may want to consider booking a flight to NYC for this Thursday’s Booth-sponsored Are You Listening? showcase, featuring Español and many more of today’s hottest up-and-comers.
