Slip on those emerald glasses, readers—Booth favorite Harlem’s Cash has reached perhaps the most important milestone on the yellow brick road to HARLEMwood: the official lead single. Though such a long and arduous journey would leave most utterly beat, the up-and-coming emcee’s in higher spirits than ever, and on this newly-released cut he clues fans in on just how wonderful it is to finally be living the good life: simply put, “It Feels Like summertime.” The Government‘s driving yet laid-back blend of cymbal-heavy percussion and club-ready synths sets the mood for a high-rolling summer jam even the tragically broke will be able to enjoy (at least till someone figures out a way to charge for sunshine). Though the beat’s breezy energy and D.C. R&B singer Tiara Wiles’ equally refreshing chorus will hook listeners in, the rapper’s deceptively dense verses are what will get the record repeat spins—name-dropping everything from John Belushi and The Cosby Show to Kanye and Cooley High, Cash brings plenty of lyrical substance to the ear-pleasing track. Those digging this warm weather jam are sure to find more to their liking on the rapper’s HARLEMwood CASHafornia EP, set to drop in September.
