Olu - Gold
Months after making his DJBooth debut with the Ryan Macgowan-produced Exhale, Cincy spitter Olu has returned to our pages and he’s brought with him glorious gifts of Gold. Now before you get on the phone with the folks over at Cash 4 Gold, I should probably tell you that the Gold I’m referring to is of the audio variety. Before morphing into a bass-laced banger, Gold initially kicks off on a smooth note thanks to the production of Laisaun and a hypnotizing, vintage-like hook, which resurfaces later in the song. Unsurprisingly, the Ohio rhymedropper is on a mission to get both the gold and the green as he spits, “I work hard cause I want it all and money keep me focused.” Along with getting a fresh start on things with the start of the new year you can also look forward to the release of Olu’s Educated Fool album, which is due out on January 15, 2013.
