In the fast-paced, stressful world of 2014, we could all use the occasional Moment of Peace. Unfortunately, you’re not gonna find silence or tranquility on the latest single from Booth newcomer Constant Flow—but you will find plenty of lyrical insights into the most pressing issues we face today, both in the U.S. and abroad. Over Southpaw‘s pensive keys and jittery rhythm section, the Jersey repper draws attention to the unrest in Gaza, and the history of intolerance and oppression underlying it. Immortal Technique takes a closer look at the state of hip-hop in his guest middle 16, and Melanie Fontana tops the cut off with some ear-grabbing hook vocals. Feeling it? More thoughtful bars and quality beats await on Constant Flow’s Ascension LP, dropping next Tuesday via Viper Records.
