Rappers are quick to proclaim themselves dyed-in-the-wool players, but few are truly immune to the allure of love and marriage. Mobile, Alabama-repping newcomer Its BJ, for example, has been struggling lately to reconcile his self-image as a pimp with the Feelings he’s developing for a certain woman—and judging by this newly-released mixtape single, his emotional side is winning out. In an attempt to rationalize the self-contradiction away, he references Shawn Carter‘s transformation from unrepentant womanizer to devoted husband and father: “I don’t give a damn about a hoe… well, man, even Jigga lied / ‘Cause lately I’ve dreamin’ ‘bout a Beyoncé.” To accompany his ambivalent rhymes, Nu Religion turns in a simple, yet effective instrumental built around a jazzy set of guitar chords. Racing Thoughts has yet to receive a drop date, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted on the set as further details emerge.
