Damn, Bathgate‘s rhyming over Kanye beats now? Well… kinda! Actually, the pensive piano-string production featured on new mixtape single That Girl (making its world premiere here in the Booth) was actually one of 12 instrumentals given him by West in the latter’s pre-household name days. Bathgate comes with rhymes to match the tension-fraught beat, spitting about his dysfunctional relationship with the mother of his children. If you appreciate this moody banger, more freshness awaits on the artist’s Booth-sponsored Sinners Paryer LP, set to hit our mixtape page for free streaming and download later this month.
