I hear it’s pretty lonely at the top so lets consider the trio of wordsmiths consisting of Gameboi, XV, and Jon Connor your friendly neighborhood loners on former’s latest world premiere Top Of The World. While both Vizzy and Connor have released a steady stream of cuts on DJBooth, Top Of The World marks a return for the Michigan rhymesayer who has been absent from the site since his January release of Emergency. Despite featuring three very different emcee’s Top Of The World moves along pretty swiftly, which is partially due to the absence of a hook on the record, but when you’ve got such a variety of talented artists a hook could weigh down the song. Set to a soul-heavy, sample-driven beat from New England producer Statik Selektah, Top Of The World is simply three emcees swapping triumphant verses on their day-to-day victories. With the release of his Young & Restless album set for September 3, be on the lookout for more tunes from Gameboi in the near future.
