Last we saw Gameboi, on an early-August premiere off his latest mixtape, he was standing on Top of the World alongside reader faves XV and Jon Connor. Of course, he wasn’t about to stop there; on this freshly-minted project standout, the Ann Arbor spitter’s Rise to prominence continues, taking him straight through the Earth’s atmosphere into the loftiest heights of lyrical excellence. With Alex Goose‘s infectious sample work banging in the back, the artist flies lyrical circles around the competition, delivering agile bars packed with witty punchlines and pop-culture references. Motown emcees Ro Spit and One Be Lo follow the headliner’s opening verse with equally fresh, exuberant middle and closing 16s. Craving more bangers from this teenage microphone fiend? Then do yourself a favor and cop Young and Restless, available free of charge from the artist’s Bandcamp.
