  • Artist: Amiyj
  • Track: Velour
  • Producer: Bezo
  • Album: TBD

Though Amiyj owes as much to Jay-Z and Nas as any NYC rapper, he sets himself apart from the pack with an R&B, rock 'n' roll, and alternative-influenced style that's more gentleman than gangsta.  On Velour, the up-and-comer's first Booth feature, Amiyj employs a wordplay style halfway between Hova and Kanye—it'll take at least three listens to catch every punchline he spits here.  Bezo exhibits the telltale signs of 'Ye-itis on the production tip; his sampled horn-percussion groove is reminiscent of past Mr. Carter-Mr. West collaborations (Heart of the City springs to mind).  Though the rapper's debut album has yet to receive a title or release date, it's jams like this one that turn industry tastemakers' heads. Amiyj, if you're reading this, how about spitting a few bars for our exclusive freestyle series?
