PTO Series (#5)

Ah, love—the one chemical high you can enjoy wherever and whenever you please, without fear of getting locked up or fired from your job.  Making its exclusive world premiere right here in the Booth (the track won’t hit the rest of the ‘net till Saturday, the 15th), the fifth and final installment of Thad Reid‘s bi-monthly Paid Time Off EP/series finds the Blue Collar rapper asking a special lady to “Look My Way,” intoxicated with the excitement of a blossoming romance.  Featuring a guest verse and smooth backing vocals by reggae/dancehall up-and-comer Akshan (who collaborated with Reid on his first Booth feature, Cruzin’) and topped off with a Solo-D produced beat just as smooth as Shaun E Suave‘s reader-acclaimed boardwork on Payday, this laid-back, easily-relatable jam has more than enough mellow appeal to leave Booth regulars head over heels.  If you like what you’re hearing, be sure to check back with us once summer’s come to a close—Thad Reid’s Paid Time Off EP, featuring all five entries in the series plus three previously-unreleased cuts, is set to drop Labor Day weekend.
