Damn, talk about a back story. AC, the Staten Island emcee and infamous DJBooth Freestyle alum we last heard hard rhyming on About No One, strikes a much more melancholy tone on his new single Angel, a record that serves as a dedication to Lina Morgana, the tragically killed up-and-coming singer whose style and sound her mother claims Lady Gaga stole to craft her superstar career. A re-working of Morgana’s material (that’s her on the vocals), Angel find producer J. Glaze updating the original beat (by Rob Fusari) into a melancholy hip-hop jam that still strikes an appropriately mournful tone. And while I’m more familiar with AC’s more aggressive work, his deeply lyrical work here has given me a new appreciation for his rhyme abilities: “There are some souls that can’t be saved / watch my angel fly away.” Is it just me or is it getting a little dusty in here? Angel isn’t part of a larger project (yet), but it’s only a matter of time before the hard-working AC has another track for us. Keep it locked to the Booth for more.
