Despite not occurring in nature, Black Roses are commonly invoked as a symbol of hope on one hand, and death or mourning on the other. Both those meanings are relevant to Cory Kendrix‘s first Booth feature, premiering right here on our front page. On this low-key, introspective cut, the Austin-based rhymesayer reflects on a childhood and adolescence spent surrounded by reminders of mortality, including the untimely deaths of numerous homies. A.Dd+‘s Slim Gravy shifts the focus to the present and future in his closing 16, spitting, “Grown man still growin’ up. / All I know is ‘bout decisions.” Y2JJ produces the cut’s hazy, sampled instrumental backdrop, and an uncredited female vocalist provides the hook. Feeling it? More fresh, thought-provoking tunes are just a few clicks away; download Kendrix’s IGNORANCE LP now.
