Wes James is an artist whom you can count on to deliver a dope record every time. Yeah, I know, if y'all were in the room with me you'd be pelting me with tomatoes for that awful pun, but how's this for consolation: his latest single, 123, is a Booth-exclusive world premiere. Part of the Cali buzzmaker's long-awaited Trip in Fall LP, the record finds James describing his train of thought after ingesting three tabs of Chance the Rapper's favorite recreational substance. DJBooth Top ProspectMichael Christmas assists on verse two, showcasing his signature dry wit over beatsmith Nate Fox's dreamy, harp-laced production. Trip remains unscheduled but, rest assured, y'all will be the first to know when that changes.
