As the DMV representative and DJBooth regular Muggsy Malone says in the intro to his new song Live Life, “you only get one shot.” Too true. Maybe it’s that need for perfection that’s pushed back his The TPK Album for over a year now, which is fitting, because Live Life isn’t too far from perfect. Behind the boards Timeless Beats delivers a relaxed, soulfully laced beat to get heads nodding - I’m really digging those organs. Then Mr. Malone seals the deal with more rapid fire flows than we’re typically used to from the man, smoothly touching on topics ranging from his struggle to succeed to police brutality (and throws in a pretty hilarious Lebron punchline while he’s at it). With the always high-quality Novel icing the cut with a sweetly gritty hook I’d say Muggsy is providing the soundtrack for us all to live our lives to, but as always DJBooth Nation's opinion are what matter most. Either way, expect to be able to finally cop The TPK Album when it drops this summer. He swears. Finally.
