Farewell, DJBooth Freestyle Series. In our never-ending quest to keep things fresh across our platform, we've decided to scrap the long-running series from the past six years, which included contributions from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, Wiz Khalifa, Yelawolf, Big K.R.I.T. and more.
Don't worry, though, because after every sunset comes a new day, and today we begin a new era with the announcement and premiere of our brand new Bless The Booth series.
Coming at you live from DJBooth headquarters at #AudiomackStudios, positioned right in the heart of SoHo, New York City, Bless The Booth will once again bring our readers exclusive bars from their favorite Booth-approved emcees. Characterized by its off the cuff nature, our Bless The Booth series is the result of artists coming through our office to kick back and have a drink or two. While enjoying the comforts of our newly-remodeled digs, we will cycle through a wide range of beats with our guests, encouaging them to jump into our recording booth as soon as the vibe is right.
The first artist to Bless The Booth is Casey Veggies, an Inglewood native and EPIC Records signee, whose major label debut, Live & Grow, is scheduled for release on September 25. In his opening contribution, "F*ck The Fame," Casey employs a variety of effortless flows over production from our in-house beatsmith and DJ, T-GUT.
For more from Casey be sure to stream his buzzing, DeJ Loaf-featured single, "Tied Up," as well as his Booth-acclaimed single "Wonderful" with Ty Dolla $ign. As for Bless The Booth, check back weekly (and subscribe to our YouTube channel) for more audio dopeness from the likes of Locksmith, Emilio Rojas, Obie Trice, Deniro Ferrar, Chaz French and more.
