It's quite fitting that Long Island singer/emcee Gator Young would introduce himself with world premiere single I'm Free, a friendly "hello world" effort that doubly serves as his Booth debut. On I'm Free, Gator (yes he's from Long Island and not the Nawlins backwoods) meticulously works his way from emcee to singer, gliding in a Drake-like manner back and forth between dropping verses and provides the song with its hook. It's always an fascinating musical juncture when an emcee must transition from rapper to singer mid-song, as the results are usually highly on the cringeworthy side or an audible pleasure. Thankfully for Gator Young it's the latter. While the Long Island musician doesn't jump on the hook with memorable powerhouse vocals he does boast a unique voice. Keeping with I'm Free's celebratory vibe is production from Kasual Kas of Queeny Entertainment. At the moment I'm Free isn't attached to any larger project from the dual threat.
