The Perfect Formula ft. Verbal E & Fame - I’m in Love
Hip-hop has a long tradition of producer/emcee combos (ex. Gangstarr) and tracks that use women as a metaphor for a larger topic (ex. Common’s Used to Love H.E.R.), and impressively The Perfect Formula - making their DJBooth debut today – combine both with their new single I’m in Love. Comprised of Booth-approved lyricist Marion Write and producer DJ Finyl, here Perfect Formula has brought along newcomers Verbal E and Fame for some dope, reference-heavy rhymes over Finyl’s soulful beat that draw a direct line between their troubled relationships with women and their native Las Vegas: “Give me the cold shoulder but she’s still too hot / she even had the nerve to tell me that she killed Tupac.” I’ll give you a minute to figure out that line…yeah, there you go. Told you the metaphors were heavy. Do Marion Write and DJ Finyl have the perfect formula for DJBooth success? Are people finally tired of my terrible puns? We’ll find out shortly. Get to commenting people.
