Theo Martins - Goodwill Hunting (RZA 94)
Perhaps inspired by Christian Rich, the identical twins who contributed boardwork and hook vocals to his last solo feature, Theo Martins has decided to throw his hat into the singly-named-duo ring. For a forthcoming “mini-project,” the Rhode Island emcee’s joined forces with producer $port to form Chris Connery. Booth readers love motivational jams and musical tributes to hip-hop legends, and this newly-leaked cut is both; Goodwill Hunting (RZA 94) finds Theo delivering nostalgically uplifting meditations on his artistic grind as his production partner pays homage to the man who crafted the Wu-Tang Clan‘s signature sound. $port’s lush instrumental, inspired by the great RZA‘s early work and sampled from ‘70s soul group The Fuzz’ I Love You for All Seasons, succeeds both as a tribute and as a complement to Theo’s dreamy inspirational lyricism. Short, sweet, and sure to leave lovers of mellow, feel-good music with a smile on their face, this track will undoubtedly boost anticipation for Chris Connery’s You Can’t Do That on Television, which has yet to receive a solid release date.
