Fresh off introducing himself to our pages with last week’s reader-approved The Cut (Roll Up), Berkeley-based rap buzzmaker Clyde Shankle returns with another fresh song release off his next mixtape—and it just so happens to be a Booth-exclusive world premiere. Tryna Get It offers an engaging glimpse into the life of an young rapper on the come-up. Kreateen aquatic synths and shuffling, syncopated rhythm section back the artist as he chronicles his hustle in self-assured, conversational bars. HBK Gang member IAMSU! and his Go Crazy collaborator, Dave Steezy, deliver guest verses. Like what you’re hearing? Then watch the Booth for more fresh tunes leading up to the October arrival of Clyde’s Rarity street album.
