There are as many reasons for rapping as there are emcees. Booth newcomer Devious? He spits to wake listeners up—not just to his prowess on the mic, but also to the larger political realities of life in the streets. On freshly-minted mixtape single You Sleep Out Here, making its world premiere in the Booth, the New Orleans representative sets out to achieve both of those goals at once, showcasing his prodigious skills in verses packed with incisive social commentary. Kevin Gates, the Baton Rouge repper who brought us Arm & Hammer, jumps on BlaqNMild‘s whip-ready beat to deliver a similarly bracing guest 16. Devious’s next project, Life Is What You Make It, currently lacks a drop date, but we’ll keep you posted on the set as further details emerge.
