When someone says, “We need to talk,” it’s almost never about anything good. (If they ask you to sit down first, then prepare for some really bad news.) In the case of Johnny Spanish‘s latest single, though, you’ve got nothing to worry about—the Louisville native simply wants to have a little chat about how dope he is. Released along with official visuals by Shaun Wilson, Talk to ‘Em sees Oliver Stoned crafting a soulful, yet gritty sampled beat to back Spanish as he reminds us just how different he is from your average emcee: “I ain’t your typical bar-slinger, I / hold the knowledge of all things, I am more of a / harbinger of a new age, y’all stuck in a / cave like you was Bruce Wayne, minus the cape.” In between the headliner’s skillfully-flowed 16s, frequent collaborator T-Razor grabs the mic to deliver a gruff middle verse. For Talk to ‘Em and much more, check out Spanish’s Home LP, available now for streaming and download in the Booth.
