Kirswords may be a newcomer to the Booth but, if you're a loyal reader, a glance at the company he keeps will be more than enough to persuade you that his music will be worth your time. On debut single Tri-State Mindstate, the Philly representative is joined by estimable talents from both New York and the Keystone State. J57 handles production duties, turning in a gritty, sampled beat with an old-school vibe, and fellow Brown Bag All-StarSoul Khan tags along to spit a guest verse. Joe Swisher, a Philadelphia spitter who frequently collaborates with Roots affiliates Truck North and Dice Raw, rounds out the guest lineup, and DJ Bear One tops the record off with some authentic cuts. Tr-State isn't attached to a larger project, but we'll keep you posted on Kirswords's plans as we learn more.
