Fresh off the DJBooth-hosted release of All the Wrong Things 2, Los Angeles rhymesayer DEMRICK has partnered with recording artist and producer Polyester The Saint to craft a joint EP. Today, listeners get their first taste of the forthcoming project in the form of HU$TLE, a blunted street banger featuring guest bars from a perennial reader fave. Over his behind-the-boards partner’s syrupy-slow synth production, DEMRICK reminisces about an adolescence spent grinding his way out of poverty in a measured, yet self-confident opening verse. SoCal phenom THURZ takes a similarly nostalgic tack on the back, assuring listeners that he’s “still the same n**ga” as when he first picked up the mic. Featuring appearances by Chuck Inglish, Diz Gibran, Skeme and many more Booth-approved artists, the Wings UP EP is scheduled to drop digitally on Tuesday, August 13.
