Puma makes dope kicks, DJBooth plays dope music and Emilio Rojas is a dope rapper, so it was only right that we all came together for the cornucopia of dopeness that is Home. The second release off Puma and DJBooth’s collaborative upcoming album (the first was Gilbere Forte and Freeway’s Winner), Home is everything we’ve come to expect from Rojas. A somber, subtly rock infused beat by J. Glaze topped with an achingly beautiful hook from JoyLuv? Check. An intensely personal delivery from Rojas that’s equal parts rap and confessional? Check. Lyrics that acknowledge a dark past but also believes in a better future (”A vicious cycle I knew I couldn’t shake it / and now it’s lookin like I’m gonna make it”)? Check and double check. If you like your hip-hop not just real but fearlessly real, welcome Home. So mark your calendar, stick a post-it on the fridge, whatever you have to do, just remember that Puma’s Uncontested EP drops next Monday, July 25, right here on DJBooth. In the meantime, the impatient can expect one last leak courtesy of Laws to hold them over – keep it locked.
