Our Bless The Booth series continues to advance at breakneak speed. Next up to bat is Jimi Tents, a Brooklyn emcee who's been making some serious waves, including being selected as a DJBooth Top Prospect.

Tents is currently one week removed from the release of his debut full-length, the 5 O'Clock Shadow LPand recently came through #AudiomackStudios to tackle some dreamlike production from our resident DJ/producer T-GUT. The word "Blessing" is almost an understatement here, as Jimi puts on a rap clinic, showing viewers why the 'rewind' functionality exists. You'll need a couple run-throughs just to catch every reference.

For more from Jimi Tents, check out the 5 O'Clock Shadow LP in addition to his buzzing "Landslide" record. 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 Stro, HD, Tiara Thomas and more.

We hope you feel blessed, because following entries from Casey Veggies, LocksmithChaz French, Don Mykel and more, we have reached the tenth installment in our 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.
