Novel ft. Ako & Amir Taron - Money, Drugs & Women [Proverbs] [Premiere]

Posted 6 years ago
Tags: Novel , Premiere
Producer:
Ako [of Chemistry Music]
Album:
Legato Blues Summer Mixtape

As anyone who’s ever watched VH1’s landmark show knows, there are three surefire ways to ensure you end up with your very own Behind the Music episode: just overindulge in money, drugs and women. Booth nation favorite Novel once again proves he’s simply on another level with the release of his latest cut, the aforementioned Money, Drugs & Women [Proverbs], a smoothly formulated warning to those prone to addiction. While producer Ako, who also lays down a guest verse, sets the pace with a bluesy, mellow beat, Novel displays his ever-improving mic skills (spending all that time with Joell Ortiz clearly paid off), and then brings in fellow emcee and longtime collaborator Amir Taron to seal the deal. An artist who’s more interested in making timeless music than doing lines of blow off a groupie’s stomach with an $100 bill? At this rate Novel will never get one of those cool Behind the Music voiceovers. Money, Drugs & Women [Proverbs] is the second release - the first was the Booth uber-approved State of Loneliness – off Novel’s upcoming Legato Blues Summer Mixtape, due out this summer.
