Hailing from the West Side of Los Angeles, Booth newcomer Be-1 has clearly learned well from his gangsta-rap forebears. On This Is 4da, a gritty beat by Phazze One sets the mood for hard-nosed declarations of ‘hood loyalty, as well as a few choice words directed at the LAPD. South Central emcee ScHoolboy Q and Inglewood repper Skeme turn in similarly aggressive performances. Craving more? You’re in luck; released May 9, Be-1’s Eulogy LP is available now for free download.
