Fresh off earning reader approval for Count’em Up, West Coast buzzmaker GQ returns to the Booth with another freshly-minted single off his impending studio album. Jamla boss 9th Wonder once again mans the mixing boards, backing his signee’s intricately-flowed snapshots of the hustle with deliberate percussion and stop-start string samples. Los Angeles neighbors Bad Lucc and Problem contribute tightly-wound guest 16s. Rated Oakland is slated to hit online retailers Tuesday, June 24, at which point it will also be available for streaming and purchase in The DJBooth.
