Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt – it’s also the force that’s allowed countless men and women to turn a blind eye to clear and present evidence of their partners’ infidelity. Though no guy ever wants to entertain the idea that his girl’s cheating (and, of course, vice versa), self-deception can have dangerous, even fatal consequences, as reader fave/exclusive freestyle series alum Jeff Chery explains on new mixtape leak They Get Around. Making its world premiere in the Booth, this cut finds producer Sam Sneed serving up a melancholy, Chipmunk-sampled instrumental as the emcee spins a cautionary tale illustrating just how quickly things can turn ugly when we let lust overwhelm our better judgment. And that goes, like, quadruple when you have a loaded gun stashed under your mattress. Bad idea, kids. Seriously. If you’re digging this tragic yet dopely-executed jam, you’ll want to grab a copy Chery’s The Transition mixtape when it drops on August 29, as well as keeping it locked for the latest on his and K. Sparks’ DJBooth.net-sponsored collaborative album, Luck of the Draw.
