The Truth Hurts—especially when you happen to be fake as f**k. On this freshly-minted single, his first feature since March’s Five One Eight, El Gant dumps a chilly bucket of realness over his so-called competitors’ heads, hoping to make ‘em evaporate into steam like the Wicked Witch of the West.

DJ Devastate assists behind the wheels of steel. El’s Beast Academy LP is slated to drop Tuesday, June 10, but fans in the Booth will get a sneak peek the preceding Monday, when the project hits our front page as an exclusive stream.
