Booth newcomer Dewey Binns has been, “payin’ dues since 1998 / Battle rappin’ after school, puttin’ out cassette tapes.” So when up-and-coming artists come to him with a sob story and their hand out, the Oklahoma City rhymesayer gets understandably steamed. On No Handouts, a newly-released cut off his latest street album, Binns issues a blanket refusal to all who would come to him seeking something for nothing, criticizing sucker emcees who want to achieve success and recognition without putting in the necessary hours on the grind. Blev crafts a head-noddable chopped-sample beat to back the artist’s scathing bars. Like what you’re hearing? More hot beats and incisive rhymes await on the Dewey High Character LP, available now in stores and online.
