- Artist: Jarren Benton
- Track: They Love It [Premiere]
- Producer: Spitzwell
- Album: Unreleased
Oh, you want some more world premieres from ATL microphone-destroyer and DJBooth Freestyle rocker Jarren Benton after his last effort World Is Mine light up the Booth like the 4th of July? Your wish is our command. Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present They Love It, the second of three premieres from Senor Benton. Behind the boards somewhat ironically named producer Spittzwell crafts a beat every bit as eclectic as Benton’s flow, bringing together some hip-hop bounce with a rock edge and, well, about 197 other audio elements. It’s a sonic stew many rappers wouldn’t be able to stir, but Benton handles the track admirably, maintaining full control of the mic while dropping an eclectic flow and still working in the occasional punchline: “We smoking on that ugly green, call it Swamp Thing.” So will the Booth love it? My Magic 8 Ball says all signs point to yes, and my Magic 8 Ball is (almost) never wrong. Benton has yet to announce details surrounding the project these tracks are attached to, but I think we all know what site will let you know first.
