We are way up, and we do feel blessed, because following entries from Casey Veggies, LocksmithEmilio RojasChaz French and Deniro Farrar, we have reached the sixth installment in our brand new Bless The Booth series. For those not up to date, Bless The Booth has taken over for our now completed DJBooth Freestyle Series, which ran on and off for the past six years and included contributions from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, Wiz Khalifa, Yelawolf, Big K.R.I.T. and more. 

From the DJBooth headquarters at #AudiomackStudios, located in the heart of SoHo, NYC, to your laptop or phone (more likely), Bless The Booth brings you exclusive bars from your favorite 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. After cycling through a wide range of beats and achieving the optimal vibe, it's time to head into the booth and hit record.

The latest artist to Bless The Booth is Don Mykel, a self-described "poet, writer, and transcending rap artist from the dungeons of Harlem, New York," who previously went by the stage name Don Cypha. Mykel has been building a steady buzz with a classic sound, and more importantly his penchant for having bars for days, and on his "Crusades Freestyle" he barely manages to pause, dropping knowledge over the lavish, boom bap production of producer Dusty Loops.

For more Don Mykel, make sure you check out his recent EP, The Infinite, in advance of his upcoming King Mykel: The Rebirth EP, which is "coming soon." As for Bless The Booth, check back this time next week (and subscribe to our YouTube channel) for more audio and visual dope from the likes of Obie Trice, Chase N. Cashe, Stro and more.
