Minus the The Lonely Island club, the hip-hop game has been about as serious as a Joker monologue lately. If you’ve been looking for some funny lyricism matched with heavy hitting production, you’re in luck today. Jarren Benton is back at it with the DJBooth-exclusive A Spacesuit & Parachute, a leak that delivers line after line of creativity and humor from both Benton and the well-established ATlien Aleon Craft. SMKA always manages to throw down a great beat, this time taking it to an otherworldly feel with sparkling synths and deeply rumbling bass while the Freestyle Series alum beats down naysayers with witty one-liners: “These ni**ers aren’t ready homes, they are on romantic getaways with Eddie Long.” Throw in a flowing verse from Aleon and this one’s absolutely orbiting. Need more proof that this project is nothing but fun? The title of the album (out January 25 via iTunes) is Jarren Benton meets SMKA: Huffing Glue with Hasselhoff. Getting an audio high has never sounded so good. Keep it locked to the Booth for more from these talented tricksters.
