True 2 Life Music - Poppin’ On TV
Though up-and-coming hip-hop trio True 2 Life Music are new to the Booth, readers who’ve seen recently-released biopic Notorious may recognize their faces; Concise played Gutta of Junior M.A.F.I.A., while Slang Hughes and K. Words appeared as Fulton Street hustlers. On a newly-released promotional single, T2L brush off all their detractors, knowing that sooner or later those same critics will see them Poppin’ on TV. All three members come with rhymes hot enough to make the ever-popular lyrical topics of cash, chains, clothes and haters seem fresh again, and the beat, which comes courtesy of Jackie Rob (not one individual, but an emcee/production duo composed of Slang and Concise) adds to the cut’s unique vibe with some unconventional percussion. If this promo single leaves you wanting more, check out the group’s Biggie-inspired Larger than Life (available now for free download).
