Black Metaphor
4:57 (Overtime Edition)

Where other rappers take the shotgun blast approach, Booth favorite (and freestyle series participant) Laws is more of a lyrical sharpshooter. How did he develop his knack for nailing details with pinpoint accuracy? Well, in addition to reading a lot of Stephen King, he doesn’t slack off when it comes to Target Practice. The latest leak off his forthcoming 4:57 re-release finds the artist teaming up with another underground talent known for killing tracks: after Laws laces Black Metaphor‘s brass-sampled beat with his brand of casually clever braggadocio, Slaughterhouse member Joe Budden jumps on board to inform us just what he has in store for sucker emcees: “Steppin’ to them’s an expected win / when I slam you can notify the next of kin.” The extended, tagless Overtime edition of Laws’ 4:57 mixtape (the original version is still available here for streaming and free download) has yet to receive a solid release date, but we’ll keep you posted.
