Nobody's perfect – it's just that some people are a little more imperfect than others. While Booth fave Neako's misdeeds are minor compared to what certain other artists have on their karmic rap sheet (Vanilla Ice, I'm looking at you), the Jersey native still has a couple things to get off his chest. On new mixtape single The Sinner, the freestyle series alumnus does just that, sparking up a joint before lacing his own haunting, reverb-drenched production (complete with delicate flute accompaniment by Fluterscooter) with a brutally honest litany of his past failings. In a mournful, chanted flow wreathed in distortion, Neako admits to several deep regrets, from dropping out of school before getting his degree, to deciding (with his then-girlfriend) to abort his baby daughter: “We both, made a choice / To this day, I hear her voice / Took a piece out my soul.” Heavy stuff to be sure, but the rare combo of stylistic innovation and deep emotion Neako brings to the cut makes Sinner a must-listen. For more dark, introspective material (along with some lighter fare), check out the artist's Booth-sponsoredThe Sinner & the Winner, coming in March.
