Booth newcomer Fuze the MC‘s MySpace bio states that he was born and raised in the outskirts of Atlanta, where he honed his rap skills against the wishes of a hip-hop-unfriendly family. Pretty transparent cover story, no? In reality, of course, the up-and-comer is a mythically-powered being launched into the American South in a hastily-assembled spacecraft, and he’s made it his mission to introduce Earthlings to his home planet’s Super Music. On this cut off Fuze’s forthcoming debut LP, beatsmith Marcus Banks flips a sample from that instantly-recognizable Superman Theme (commonly credited to arranger Leon Klatzkin) into a majestically bangin’ backdrop for the rapper’s high-flying, punchline-laced braggadocio. With an uncanny knack for wordplay and an acrobatic flow, the currently-unsigned artist is a prime contender to soar to the top of the the rap game and net some stratospheric stacks along the way. Those who like what they hear can find more locomotive-powerful jams on No Hooks, set to drop July 17th.
