At both the start and end of Virginia emcee K-Beta‘s latest DJBooth premiere Pakistan the emcee eerily states that, “I hate it when I dream and I wake up shivering.” This line sets the tone for the entire song as Beta drops his first verse, which is heavy on his nightmarish disturbing visions. Looking to impress newcomers, on Pakistan‘s second verse the DMV representer shows off his way with words as he raps, “I create tension thick enough to stick a fork through/ Spit pure get more twisted than a corkscrew.” Well, damn. Despite the slightly ominous vibe of the song producer J-$crilla keeps the instrumental foundation on Pakistan a little more upbeat as he blends heavy drums kicks with sonic synths. Details on K-Beta’s forthcoming album remain scarce, but with his last album released well over two years ago it’s certain that the wait will be over soon.
