It's that time of the year again. I believe Thanksgiving roughly translates to Rick Ross-sized helpings of turkey, complaining about having to watch the Lions and the Cowboys and copious amounts of drinking family time. It's also a time to count our blessings, which we'll happily provide a full TWO days early thanks to the latest installment in our Bless The Booth series. Last week it was HD, and this week our latest entry comes from Dylan Owen, an up-and-coming rhymesayer and native of upstate New York.
Freddie Gibbs, Saweetie & Earl Sweatshirt: Best of the Week
Freddie Gibbs, Saweetie, and Earl Sweatshirt, among others, had the best new songs on Audiomack this week.
Known for his personal brand of "confessional storytelling," Owen released his latest project, There's More To Life, back in June, which includes Booth-approved cut "Everything Gets Old." Not only a gifted storyteller, he came through #AudiomackStudios to remind us he's got bars on deck, rattling off multisyllabic rhymes over the soulful stylings of producer Skinny Atlas.
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, Locksmith, Chaz French, Don Mykel and more, we have reached the twelfth 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.
