Part of 2012 street album ADOLESSONS, Air Vent found Booth newcomer Kidaf showcasing his mic skills as he chronicled his hustle over an industry beat by the late, great J. Dilla. Freshly-minted sequel Air Vent 2, leaked to the ‘net last September but featured here in is completed form, follows the Queens native as he continues to lay the foundations for his future success in the game. Co-headlining the cut with Kidaf, veteran German beatmaker Shuko does James Yancey proud on the production tip, combining airy samples with a boom-bap rhythm as the emcee delivers his tightly-wound autobiographical bars. This promotional single isn’t attached to any forthcoming project, but those who like what they’re hearing will be able to cop the record via iTunes starting tomorrow, February 5.
