At this point, I think we’re all agreed that rumors of hip-hop’s death were greatly exaggerated. While the fact that the genre was alive and kicking all along calls into question the idea of a Rebirth (not to speak of the traumatic associations that title carries), it would be a shame to let logic hamper our enjoyment of music as dope as Star Time, the inaugural leak off producers Grant Parks and Vudu Spellz’ forthcoming street album. Making its world premiere in the Booth, this cut finds the latter beatsmith behind the boards, crafting an exotic chopped-sample backdrop for witty bars by four of Chi-town’s finest. In addition to freestyle series alumnus Pugs Atomz and the previously-featured Sulaiman, underground mainstay Ill Legit and Booth newcomer N.E.P.H.E.W. step up to the mic to to spit verses packed from top to bottom with clever wisecracks and vivid imagery. Which of these flame-spitters delivers the standout 16? That, of course, is for you to decide. Regardless, fans of Real MCs, Real Skills won’t want to miss the freshness in store on Parks & Spellz’ Booth-sponsored mixtape, scheduled to drop Feb. 15.
