Hip-hop is full of motivational bangers exhorting listeners to reach for the stars and turn their fantasies into reality. DJ Pain1‘s latest feature (a Booth-exclusive world premiere!) ain’t one of ‘em. On this freshly-minted mixtape single, First in Flight State representative Rain offers trash-talk rather than encouragement, telling hopeful emcees, “F**k Ya Dreams n**ga, I hope your goals crash / and never make it out the project with your broke ass.” His guest’s bars might be abrasive, but Pain keeps things smooth and listenable on the production tip, building his beat around a lush soul sample. Featuring this cut, the reader-approved I Want the Power and much more, Painkillerz 3 is set to drop in January via The DJBooth.
