As an up-and-coming artist with cash to spare and too many women to fit into one tricked-out ride (as he explained on his last Booth feature), 4-IZE is enjoying himself too much to let haters and sucker emcees ruffle his feathers – thus, his boilerplate response to anyone talking trash is a polite but firm, “No, no, Dat Ain’t Gon’ Ride.” This newly-leaked track off IZE’s forthcoming Illuminated Animals street album finds the dual Chicago/Atlanta native flowing over the cheery, Chipmunk-soul boardwork of DJ Rasta Root annihilating his doubters in spectacularly patronizing style: “What is your life about? What is you on? You really must’ve bumped your head, ‘cause something’s wrong…” Girls Rock Too rapper Señor Kaos and NYC’s Punchlyne handle the latter two-thirds of the track, the former taking a more aggressive tack and the latter hitting haters right where it hurts: “You can find my name in your girlfriend’s address book.” Complete with a cartoonish call-and-response hook, this lyrical kiss-off and more can be found on Illuminated Animals when it hits the ‘net on November 23.
