Rarely does live-band hip-hop sound as smooth as it does on We Live Today, the first Booth feature from Derrick Hodge. On this newly-released single, the Philadelphia bassist/composer/producer cooks up a lush, jazzy instrumental backdrop for the vivid verses of Windy City mainstay Common. If this cut leaves you intrigued, you’ll find plenty more where it came from on Hodge’s almost-identically titled Live Today LP; keep it locked for release details on the yet-uscheduled project.
