- Artist: Joe Clark
- Track: Locomotive Joe
- Producer: Soy Sauce
- Album: We Are the Stars
Like The Little Engine That Could, the plucky blue locomotive who made it over a seemingly insurmountable hill by repeating the mantra, “I think I can, I think I can,” Orlando native (and first-time Booth featuree) Joe Clarkknows he's destined for the top, and he's going to keep chugging up the track till he gets there. Mixtape leak Locomotive Joe finds the half-human, half-machine emcee filling his soon-to-be fans in on his mythic origin story, assisted by some appropriately cinematic voice-over narration. Unusually-named beatsmith Soy Sauce sets the cherry on top of this motivational jam, serving up a driving soul sample that perfectly captures Clark's dogged determination. The message may be a simple one – Joe Clark is here, and he'll stop at nothing to take over the game – but the high-concept creativity Clark brings to this record will likely score him points among Booth readers. If you like what you're hearing, grab a copy of the up-and-comer's We Are the Stars mixtape, pulling into the station tomorrow, November 24.
