- Artist: Gotham Green
- Track: Cross Island Expressway
- Feat. Kool G Rap
- Producer: Beatnick & K-Salaam
- Album: Child of an Immigrant
Gotham Green's last single, featured on our front page last week, found the East Coast buzzmaker dealing with the Pain in [His] Heart by lashing out at his enemies. On follow-up Cross Island Expressway, he does essentially the opposite, taking the pain and suffering in the world around him as an impetus for lyrical reflection. Longtime Booth faves Beatnick & K-Salaam provide an immersive, string-laced backdrop for the headliner's poignant bars, as well as the equally affecting guest rhymes of hip-hop veteran Kool G Rap and Rap Rushmore featuree Nature. Feeling it? More awaits on Child of an Immigrant, scheduled for independent release this Friday, September 26.
