Live From: The Basement III

A Memphis buzzmaker and a member of local art collective Artesmisia, Booth newcomer Ryan J. Barber gives listeners a glimpse into his psyche on newly-released mixtape single In My Mind. Here, beatsmith Riddle flips a sample from Heather Hadley’s 2005 rendition of Shannon Sanders’ 1999 cut of the same title into a soulful backdrop for the up-and-coming emcee’s poignant post-breakup meditations. For more, check out Barber’s latest street album, Live From: The Basement III, available online as of March 16.
