Saturday just happens to be my birthday, but before I can celebrate another year on this planet I must celebrate The Birth of Rogue. The record, a Booth-exclusive world premiere from Bad Newsz Greatest, is like an early birthday present, because I have been craving something totally different to add to my music collection. Producer AdotheGOD sets the mood with an interesting beat, which incorporates ‘80s synths and some dope samples. As well-crafted as the production may be, however, the beat still plays second fiddle to BNG’s crisp, pronounced flow, which is calm and collected, yet very potent. Fans of The Birth of Rogue will be able to find the cut on California native’s I Live Forever album, scheduled for release at the top of next year.
