9th Uno - Start the Fire

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: 9th Uno
  • Track: Start the Fire
  • Producer: MoSS
  • Album: Blue Night

As anyone who's up on their Billy Joel knows, we didn't Start the Fire. While it was previously believed that it had always been burning since the world began turning, newly-unearthed evidence suggests that the blaze may have been the work of an up-and-coming emcee known as 9th Uno. On his latest album leak and first Booth feature, the Toronto-repping up-and-comer takes the “lyrical flames” analogy and runs with it, delivering verses that might just leave scorch marks on listeners' eardrums. Set off with a sample from 1991 action film Backdraft, fellow Canadian MoSS' sizzling, guitar-laced boardwork sets the stage for verses packed with pop-referential punchlines and aggressive quotables (“Your circle is slain / Left no prints—Purple Rain.”). Has this blistering banger left you with a burning desire to hear more from 9th Uno? Then keep it locked; while debut full-length Blue Night (named after the T-Dot transit line) has yet to receive a drop date, we in the Booth will keep you supplied with the latest news and tunes.
