Album:
The Indie Life: Hate, Love & Money

I never would’ve pegged SMCity as a Stephanie Meyer fan, but I guess looks can be deceiving. On his latest feature, a Booth-exclusive world premiere, the DMV native comes out of the closet as a Twilight diehard, rhapsodizing about the eternal love that binds Bella and Edward. OK, OK, before hip-hop heads run screaming, I made that up (except the world premiere part). In reality, this inaugural EP leak is one-hundred percent free of sparkle vampires, instead packing the time-tested combo of dope beats and scorching underground rhymes; Best Kept Secret provides the former, flipping a fresh brass-keyboard groove into a glitzy yet gritty backdrop for SMCity’s chronicles of the hustle. Brooklyn fave (and freestyle alum) Skyzoo takes over on the back, expressing his self-sufficiency by way of some downright dazzling verbiage: “One and the same with no one besides I, so my circle full of winners is mirrors side by side.” Topped off with the hook vocals of Summery rapper/singer Kokayi, this selection should be just the thing to stir up buzz for the May 25, release of City’s Booth-sponsored The Indie Life: Hate, Love & Money EP – the first in a trilogy set to drop over the next six months.
