  • Producer: Sharpsound
  • Album: Mashed Potatoes

You know that growing sense of excitement you get when you flip on a record by an artist you've never heard before, and you think “Hey, this is pretty good... in fact, it's really good.”? Well, I have an inkling that quite a few readers will have That Feeling while listening to this new joint, the first Booth feature from Miami, Florida up-and-comer Parable. Here, an infectiously upbeat soul instrument by Sharpsound (sampled from family soul group The Sylvers' That's What Love Is Made Of) sets the mood for a lyrical trip down Memory Lane. In breathlessly-flowed bars, the emcee describes the genesis of his own love affair with hip-hop, recounting his growth from a youngster scribbling rhymes in his bedroom to the lyrical equivalent of a Jedi Master. Every Parable comes with a message – so, what moral should we take away from this story? Um... don't sleep on a good emcee? Sure, that works. And be sure to download a copy of the artist's deliciously-named Mashed Potatoes mixtape, a collaboration with local trio Llamabeats, when it drops in October.
