Up here in Minneapolis, sweltering summer weather is already a distant memory, but Booth newcomer Jackie Chain‘s hometown of Huntsville, Alabama remains at a toasty 87 degrees as of press time – thus, the late-summer vibe of newly-leaked album cut Living It Up could hardly be more appropriate. Over the Block Beattaz’ breezy guitar strumming and airy synths, Mike Posner‘s Smoke N Drive compadre comes with carefree rhymes to match. Encouraging listeners to let loose and live for the moment, the hilariously-named emcee (“Jackie Chain” doesn’t have quite the humor value of “Fidel Cashflow,” but it’s up there) heightens the mood with some beach-party imagery: “We love the cool breeze, we love the palm trees / I love bikinis and blowin’ on this bomb weed.” Whatever the weather ‘round your way, you can’t argue with this joint’s laid-back ambiance. Looking for some more hip-hop freshness to soundtrack your fall festivities? You’ll find what you seek on Who Da Mane, set to hit the net this October via Universal Motown.
