If there’s one thing mob movies have taught us, it’s that there’s no escaping from your past; no matter how far you run, family ties will pull you back into the fray. A Miami mixtape mainstay (and first-time featuree) well-versed in gangster cinema, DJ EFN and the suddenly ubiquitous Ras Kass draw inspiration from the Godfather trilogy’s Michael Corleone on this newly-leaked cut, a Booth-exclusive world premiere. Over the fittingly cinematic, string-laced boardwork of Nick Fury HD, the West Coast veteran does his best Mafia don impression, showing off his Italian vocab (plus a little French and Spanish) and his pop-reference game (that’s the first Chris Farley name-drop I’ve heard in a minute) as he details the trials and tribulations of life on the throne. Like what you’re hearing? You might not be able to kiss DJ EFN’s ring through the computer screen, but you can do the next best thing: pick up a copy of his Booth-sponsored Diggin in the Tapes compilation album when it hits our mixtape page for free streaming and download December 16.
