- Artist: Wil Akogu
- Track: M.V.P (Most Valuable Poet)
- Producer: NOVA
Wil Agoku is a newcomer to the Booth, but that doesn't mean he's a minor-leaguer in the hip-hop game. With this new promo single, making its world premiere on our front page, the Chi-Town spitter sets out to demonstrate that he's one of rap's M.V.P.s. Over NOVA's moody, sample-driven production, the emcee shares some brutally honest reflections on the hustle, chronicling his struggles to succeed without compromising his artistic vision. A sample from a '67 speech by Martin Luther King, Jr. adds to the joint's impact. So, readers, do you agree that Agoku deserves the title of “Most Valuable Poet?” If so, you'll want to keep your browsers locked for the latest on his upcoming, unscheduled album of the same name.
