Jovi Rockwell - Keep It Real
The Booth has been bereft of new music from Jovi Rockwell ever since she dropped Ben four months ago, but her new joint might just be ill enough to make up for the lost time. Keep It Real is Ms. Rockwell’s latest leak off of her forthcoming mixtape Psycho Therapy Vol. 2, and I can’t lie, this joint got me open. The Co-Stars provide a beat tailor made for coolin’ out with the homies in the summer, plus they use a loop that any true hip hop head will recognize and immediately vibe with. As for Jovi, she is up to her usual vocal tricks as she rides the track smoother than a newly paved road. With dope sing-song verses and a killer reggae-tinged hook, the innovative Jamaican artist shows us that despite splitting from her major label deal, she still got it. If you’re feeling Keep It Real like I am, make sure to cop Jovi’s new mixtape when it drops in March, shortly after she performs at the vaunted SXSW Festival.
