I don’t know when Booth newcomer Jay of Thrones selected his stage name but, either way, I couldn’t help but compare him to (one of my favorite television programs) Game of Thrones. He’s ruthless like King Joffrey and tenacious like Arya. With respect to the authentic, noble, and intelligent content of his bars, he is also much like Rob Stark. Or he could just be a dragon, because he spits straight fire. Jay displays all of these qualities on his latest effort, The Last Laugh. While Kelly Portis’ boardwork has an elegant vibe, Jay goes in a grimier direction on the mic, exhibiting a gritty flow and fiery energy sure to captivate listeners in the Booth and beyond. Booth fave emcee Soul Khan showcases his more subdued, but equally heavy-handed flow in a fresh guest verse. The Last Laugh can be found on Jay’s F.L.I.G.H.T. EP, available now for free download.
