Young Scolla - Wonderful
Today hasn’t exactly been eventful, as all I did was drink copious amounts of water to recover from my actions during a very happy birthday weekend (22…yeah, getting old). While I was guzzling down my two-liter Smart Water like I’ve been running through the Mojave for a week, I luckily discovered that Young Scolla’s new track Wonderful and my H20 were equally refreshing. Off The Hip Hop Docktrine 3: The Unofficial Boondocks Mixtape, Scolla once again plays wordsmith quite well, touching on the importance of diligence and perseverance in the face of hardship: “But I still follow my dreams, when things ain’t peaches and cream.” While Scolla gets lyrical, producer Tecknowledgy (of the Xtraordinary Gentlemen) drops a light and head-nod inducing beat that moves the track along nicely. The Docktrine is out now, but if you want to catch even more from the recent In the Mix interviewee, be sure to keep it locked here for his DJBooth/RefinedHype-sponsored mixtape Potluck, set to be consumed sometime in June. Stay hydrated, kids.
