Flashing paper around and fronting like you’re a Gangster might impress certain women, but it won’t score you any points with Booth newcomer Kat Dahlia. Not only is the NYC singer/emcee and recent EPIC Records signee perfectly capable of supporting herself financially, but she can see right through the machismo of self-proclaimed G’s. On her latest promo single, previously leaked to the ‘net in an unfinished version but presented here in its final, mixed/mastered incarnation, the 21-year-old artist reminds us that youth doesn’t necessarily equate to naivete, spitting about her life struggles over a piano-loop beat by J. Dens. Complete with a chorus subversively paraphrased from Fitty‘s Wanksta, this cut isn’t attached to any forthcoming project, but those digging it can stay tuned for more from Kat Dahlia, including the latest on her currently untitled/unscheduled studio debut.
