There’s still nothing better than a perfectly placed sample. So although it’s the lyrics from Kidd Upstairs (making his DJBooth debut today) that transform new standout song selection Believe from something dope to something meaningful, I guarantee the first thing that will grab your attention is that soaring vocal sample. Looks like I should be saluting the Bay Area artist for both his work behind the boards and for some seriously heartfelt work behind the microphone – salute. Those similarly converted from doubters to Believers by the latest hip-hop double threat can check out more from Kidd on his recently released DMNDS album, which dropped on July 1.
