When every new artist makes their mark on the hip-hop game, there is usually an intro song that truly lets the people know that they’ve arrived and are ready to rip. For the Oakland emcee known as Balance, his new song I’m Here Now might just be that song. Produced by TrackLordz, the beat is not necessarily a heavy trunk banger, and yet isn’t really laid back either. Instead, with heavy bass hits and a smooth instrumental, I’m Here Now is that rare track that works equally well in your home speakers and your car system. Vocally, Manny lends a hand on the hook, delivering a catchy chorus announcing that Balance has arrived and is demanding his crown on his quest to be king. On the mic, Balance, North Carolina emcee Rain and Greenspan (who may remind you of Short Dawg) bring some dope lyrics and metaphors that might stick with you even after the track is over. So Booth fans feeling Balance’s different style of west coast flow should keep an ear out for both an upcoming DJBooth Freestyle and his album The Exit, due out in October.
