Update: We asked HD what exactly a "quimapell" was. His response: "I heard some crazy lady yelling that awhile ago, no clue what it means tho." Incredible.

Another week, another microphone left desecrated in the wake of our Bless The Booth series. Following Jimi Tents last week, our latest entry comes courtesy of another Brooklyn rhymesayer in HD, who's been dope even prior to turning heads last year in our first-ever City Cypher.

Polo Perks Is Building a Future From Pieces of the Past

We talk to the Surf Gang artist about microdosing alternative music in his raps.

Eight months removed from the release of his project The Greay(t) Area (which we strongly encouraged our readers to hear), HD slid through #AudiomackStudios to take on some laid-back boom bap production from producer Luke White. If you don't know, HD can rap his ass off, so feel free to run this back a few times to catch all these references, ya dig?

Check back this time next week (and subscribe to our YouTube channel) for more audio and visual dopeness from the likes of Stro, 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 eleventh 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.
