The ability to stay optimistic in spite of setbacks and self-doubt is practically a prerequisite to success, particularly in the fickle music game. Baltimore’s 810 is well aware of the importance of maintaining a Glass Half Full attitude, and, on the first official leak off his forthcoming, illroots/2DopeBoyz/DJBooth.net-cosponsored street album, the up-and-comer invites listeners to take The Oath that keeps him going when life starts to feel like a bad joke: simply live, learn and remain determined to get it right regardless of how many times you have to try. 810’s tenacity and positivity have certainly yielded big returns in the skills department; over Mydus’ bouncy, string-accompanied synth groove, he spits a dense, intricately-rhymed brand of braggadocio sure to get the thumbs-up from our resident lyrical heads. Fans can find The Oath, Booth-approved track U Wont Like This, and much more on 810’s Glass Half Full mixtape, set to hit the ‘net sometime next month.
