Like a fine wine, Emilio Rojas just keeps getting better with age. Actually, it’d be more accurate to say that like a fine wine with a rough childhood, some serious women issues and a dope rhyme style, Emilio Rojas keeps getting better with age, but I don’t want to get caught up in semantics. The point is, The Natural is back on our pages with yet another fresh record, and this time instead of warning us about his crazy Ex Girl, he’s simply asking the Booth to Turn It Up. Frequent production partner and co-signer DJ Green Lantern provides the beat, and while Lantern’s dark yet bouncing boardwork is nothing to scoff at, it’s the rhyme work of Rojas, who speeds up his flow a la his stellar work on the Hold You Down (Remix), and another Booth favorite Yelawolf who truly transform this song into something special. My advice? Don’t overthink this one. Just press play and turn the volume up. While Emilio’s upcoming mixtape Life Without Shame still doesn’t have a set release date, I’ve got a feeling we’ll get at least another leak or two before the project finally drops.
