Like your rhymes and beats heavy on the low frequencies? Then Balance Both, the first Booth feature from Abdominal and the Obliques, is your jam. The opening track off the T-Dot live-band crew’s latest studio album, this freshly-released single sees baritone rhymesayer Abdominal trading verses with one of the few emcees in the game who can lay claim to an even deeper flow. That’s right—Jurassic 5 alumnus Chali 2na jumps on Colin Kingsmore and Andrew Frost‘s mellow, guitar-led beat to assist the crew’s frontman in heaping ridicule on “falsetto emcees” who sound like they’re still waiting on puberty. Feeling it? You can find this cut and many more low-key bangers on the group’s Sitting Music LP, available in stores and online as of September 4.
