Despite slurring his words a bit during the introductory shout outs (blame it on the Tito's), Jarren Benton raps near-flawlessly in the latest entry of our Tunecore-presented Bless The Booth series.

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.
The Atlanta native recently released his latest project, Slow Motion, Vol. 2, his first since splitting from his former indie label (and no, he didn't sign to No Limit). As he reminds us, make sure you go listen now, whether you grab a copy on iTunes, stream it on Tidal or Apple Music, or steal it (though we can't quite co-sign the latter).
