Often, the phrase “It is what it is,” is used to shut down discussion by suggesting that things can't be otherwise than as they are. That fatalistic perspective doesn't hold any water with DJ JS-1, who turns the tables and declares that It Is What It Isn't on his forthcoming album. A Booth-exclusive world premiere, new single Turn the Tables finds guest spitter O.C. emphasizing the crucial contributions of DJs to hip-hop history, pushing back against the contemporary game's emcee-centered culture. JS-1 drives the point home behind the boards, serving up a compulsively head-noddable boom-bap groove peppered with throwback samples. Feeling it? More quality hip-hop awaits on the aforementioned It Is What It Isn't, set to drop next Tuesday, October 14, via Fat Beats.
