Artist: Justin Bates
Track: Love Life
Producer: Analogic
Album: Untitled EP

The life of an up-and-coming artist is far from easy, but Booth newcomer Justin Bates doesn’t let the struggles get him down; on the contrary, he stays optimistic at all times, secure in the knowledge that “When you Love Life, it loves you back.” Don’t share the Brooklyn-by-way-of-Chicago spitter’s talent for accentuating the positive? Not to worry—a listen to his first feature should be just the thing to start your day (or afternoon, or evening) off on the right foot. Production partner Analogic takes inspiration from one of my personal top-five rock groups, slicing and dicing the piano-led intro from Steely Dan’s Home at Last into a head-noddable backdrop for rhymes emphasizing the importance of working hard, staying true to your artistic vision and keeping your chin up. As for those who don’t follow his advice, they’d better not come running to him for help. On the back, Bates informs “nagging n*ggas,” “...if you don’t get a response when you inquire, I don’t want my verses in your projects, got it?” Listeners digging this sanguine selection can look forward to more fresh, uplifting tunes on the emcee-producer duo’s forthcoming, as-yet untitled EP, scheduled for release via Elementality later this year.
