If the Illuminati really handed out invitations to successful musicians (They don’t, nor have they even existed since the late 18th Century.), DJ Pain 1 would be first in line. On his next solo tape’s lead single, premiering right here in the Booth, the the Madison representative makes no bones about the motivation behind his hustle: “I Want the Power, power, power power…” If you want to rule over the game with an iron first, you need some loyal homies supporting you. To hold court over his funky, slow-rolling sample work, the headliner recruits N.C buzzmaker Rain, Southern street vet I-20, MMG signee Scotty Boi and Booth newcomer Traxx. Has this ambitious banger whet your appetite for more? Then watch our pages for further singles leading up to the January 7, release of Pain 1’s DJBooth-presented street album, Painkillerz 3.
