Beyond Belief may be far from the average emcee, but he shares one quality with just about everyone in the game (and most of the world): he’s constantly questing after bigger and Bigger Checks. Making its world premiere right here at DJBooth.net, this newly-released promo single sees the reader favorite talking up his paper chase over mentor Kwame‘s hard-hitting mix of organ, piano, and ghostly backing vocals. Despite the straightforward lyrical theme, Bobby J. manages to lace his verses with plenty of characteristically allusive wordplay: “Tryin’ to get this Ralph Nader when I Al Qaeda/ Get it? That’s green when I blow up.” The Rockaway native’s Brooklyn neighbor, Red Cafe, turns in an equally impressive performance halfway through, assuring fans that he’s willing to do anything to get his shine – even organize a Ponzi scheme a la Bernie Madoff. This ambitious cut isn’t scheduled to appear on any forthcoming project, but Beyond Belief fans should keep their eyes glued to our front page; the up-and-comer’s new, Booth-sponsored Excellent Adventure mixtape is set to hit the ‘net this month.
