Booth newcomer Billy Roadz’ MySpace bio traces the Jersey emcee’s musical aspirations back to hours spent getting familiar with the R&B greats while watching his mother do housework – which raises the question: if my Mom had handled the chores and let me vibe out uninterrupted, would I currently be on my way to rap stardom? I’ll have to remember to bring that one up during Thanksgiving dinner. Anyway, Roadz latest single, Towards the Sky, is a street-certified motivational anthem with a trendy rock-rap edge courtesy of producer Sizzle, who serves up a hard-hitting beat driven by midtempo percussion and delayed electric-guitar riffage. After the headliner clues listeners in on the scope of his ambitions on the front, Brooklyn rapper Maino jumps on board to provide a little moral support, brushing off the doubters in his exultant middle verse. Singer Jesse Idols rounds out the lineup, joining Roadz for a hook I can only describe as stutter-rific. This promising up-and-comer’s debut set has yet to receive a release date, but fans can keep it locked to the Booth for all the latest news and tunes.
