Roughly 99.9% of rappers featured in the Booth can be placed in one of two categories based on the photos displayed on their artist pages: (a) trying to look cool or (b) trying to look intimidating. Well, thanks to Booth newcomer Ayomari, we’re going to have to add another category: “Startled by something outside the frame while preparing to bite into an invisible submarine sandwich.” On second thought, lets just go with “Other.” Hilarious photo aside, the L.A. native showcases some dead-serious mic skills on Just a Dreamer, a standout track off his latest mixtape. Here, the laid-back, soul-sampled production of 5kinandBone5 (complete with the obligatory Biggie sample) sets an appropriately relaxing mood as the artist contrasts his fantasies of superstardom with the far-from-perfect reality of his daily grind. Topped off with guest bars by fellow Cali emcees TiRon (who recently brought us For Your Smile) and Tunji (previously heard on Keelay and Zaire‘s Addicts for Real), this appetizing track should only leave listeners hungry for more. If your stomach’s still rumbling, grab a copy of Ayomari’s Peanut Butter and Jelly Sollution mixtape, released on the 14th and out now online.
