Last week Bless The Booth returned with a menacing cut from 300-signed Virginia Beach wordsmith DP, and this week our latest entry comes courtesy of NYC-based emcee and producer duo Koncept and J57, two Brown Bag All-Stars hailing from Queens and Long Island, respectively.
Here J57 cooks up a fresh, boom bap backdrop for Koncept, who winds his way through the motivational "Live For It" freestyle, touching on sacrifices made in the name of success and the grind it takes to break through as an artist.
CEO Trayle, Ivorian Doll & brakence: Best of the Week

We hope you feel blessed, because following entries from Lil Bibby, Casey Veggies, Stro, Jazz Cartier, Don Mykel and more, we have reached the 25th installment in our Bless The Booth series, presented by TuneCore. 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.
