When you’ve been away from the Booth for as long as Jabee—his last feature hit our front page in December of 2012—it’s in your interest to come back with a bang. Today, the Oklahoma City phenom makes a suitably grand re-entrance with his latest single, a two-part cut which also happens to be an exclusive world premiere. Penny for Your Thoughts, the first and longer portion, features the headliner delivering politically-charged bars over a jazzy, head-noddable arrangement by Booth-approved beatsmith Thelonious Martin. About two-thirds of the way through, the record transitions into a more upbeat, brassy coda dedicated to the actress Sarayu Rao. Clearly, Jabee and Martin make a formidable pair—which is why they’ve teamed up to create an entire joint EP. Keep your browsers locked for the latest on Deliver Us From Evil, which currently lacks a drop date.
