Ladies, take heed: if you want to win over Booth newcomer CL-SiCK, you’d better bring your ‘A’ game; if you don’t have what it takes make the Jersey native’s heart race like he’s high on MDMA, don’t expect to get a second look. This newly-leaked cut off the up-and-comer’s forthcoming street album finds him chilling at the local club, when he locks eyes with a gorgeous female from across the room. With the help of a little liquid courage (“Wasn’t nervous, Patron shots drowned the butterflies”), SiCK gets straight to game-spitting. CL’s smooth-talking, ride-flaunting bars come backed by the spaced-out boardwork of Kajmir Royale, who pairs downtempo percussion with rubbery synth arpeggios and tops it all off with a hook Chipmunk-sampled from Roller Girl’s Close to You, (which was pretty high-pitched to begin with). Will CL-SiCKs’ So Far a Kid About Nothing live up to the three smash hit mixtapes crammed together in its title (So Far Gone, A Kid Named CuDi and The Mixtape About Nothing)? It’s certainly a tall order – we’ll find out for sure on January 1, 2010.
