Entry #88 in our DJBooth.net Freestyle Series comes courtesy of ESSO, the NYC native who recently earned reader acclaim for Michael Jackson-sampling tracks Don’t Stop and View From the Top. On his brand new, previously-unreleased Thinkin Out Loud Again freestyle, the currently unsigned emcee flows over a Pete Rock-produced instrumental originally featured on Red Cafe‘s Heart and Soul. ESSO is currently working on his forthcoming album, Evolved, and will be releasing collaborative tracks with Donny Goines, Sha Stimuli and Skyzoo in the near future. In the meantime, fans should be sure and check out the artist’s newly-released, Woody-produced Off the Wall mixtape, which finds him flowing over beats sampled from MJ’s landmark album of the same name.
Readers can download a copy of the newly-released In the Booth (Volume 2), featuring freestyles 31 through 60, here! In the Booth (Volume 1), featuring freestyles 1 through 30, can be downloaded here.
