Plenty of aspiring rappers get their start in the streets, but those who want to live to tell the tale have to get Gone eventually. On the inaugural leak off his forthcoming full-length, first-time featuree 38 Special offers his soon-to-be-fans in the Booth a little insight into his own struggle to escape from the ‘hood, flowing over a soulful, sampled instrumental by veteran beatsmith Pete Rock. Sean Hayes guests, lending his effortlessly smooth vocals to the hook. Time Served has yet to receive a solid drop date, but those who like what they’re hearing can keep it locked for all the latest from Special—including new music with the Northeastern icon DJ Premier.
