Booth favorite ANTHM’s latest, visually-assisted release is entitled Be Still. The title is kind of ironic, though, because an effort like Be Still acts as a reminder that the Manhattan native is always on the rise. The ambient, heartfelt production, lifted from Holy Other‘s Something, is perfectly-suited to the emcee’s set of skills. The track supports his sharp flow, but it also allows the emcee to enjoy the limelight with his passionate delivery and exceptionally poetic imagery brought on by a strong lyrical performance; there is no denying the man has a way with words. You can find Be Still on his 2012 project, Joy & Pain EP, which is available for free download at The DJBooth. If you want something newer, the New Yorker’s Handful of Dust EP was released this past March.
