Where does an 800-pound gorilla sit? The answer, of course is, “Wherever it wants.” Similarly, when you’ve got a mic game as gigantic as that of Arkansas repper and Suga City member Goines, you get to do what you damn well please—whether it’s breaking precedent by dropping not one but two DJBooth.net freestyles, or (as is the case today) stomping onto our homepage with the world premiere of your latest effort. The inaugural leak off the artist’s forthcoming street album, Runnin’ finds Goines throwing his weight around over a gritty, sax-infused instrumental by Booth-acclaimed beat crew SMKA. In braggadocios, swagger-drenched verses, Goines mercilessly taunts the competition, advising them to “Get a Plan B—matterfact, give up / Or maybe write a book bout how them crooks overlook us.” Topped off with some hoarse chorus vocals from guest singer Joshua (of local crew Velvet Kente), Runnin is just one of many fresh selections set for inclusion on Goines’ DJBooth-hosted Something to Lose street album, set to hit our mixtape page June 21.
