In reviewing his last Booth feature, Junkie, I observed that Bobby Creekwater was already taking strides towards breaking down his hard-nosed image and giving listeners a deeper glimpse of his lyrical abilities and his character. Though Chec Chec isn’t slated for inclusion on any forthcoming project, it’s equally notable as a step in that direction. From bar one, Creek is nothing but real; painting himself as a family man with a passion for music and high hopes for the future, he strikes a delicate balance between honesty and braggadocio, and tempers his tough talk with witty wordplay. Shady head honcho Eminem adds a dash of tension to the track, highlighting the emcee’s vocals with relentless handclaps, strings, and bass that’s almost whisper-soft. A lyrically-driven record with an intriguing sound, Chec Chec is sure to leave listeners wondering what Creek has in store on The B.C. Era Deuce, due out May 1st.
