I don’t know about y’all, but if my life was a movie it’d be a cross between American Gangster and Top Gun. OK, so I’m not actually a millionaire drug dealer and fighter pilot, but they don’t make any movies about hip-hop writers. Thankfully, DJBooth Freestyle alumnus Kingpen Slim doesn’t need to fictionalize his life at all for his new cut My Life is a Movie. As he says, “instead of being based on a true story, it’s a true story.” Originally featured on Jim Jones’ Ghost of Rich Porter mixtape, this fully mastered version of My Life features two additional verses to enhance the original’s appropriately cinematic and smooth production from DJ JButtah and Jones’ impressive lyrical output (which have now become a guest verse). For his part, Kingpen puts together some fascinating autobiographical work, touching on everything from his criminal past to his impending rise through the rap ranks. Call a date, grab some popcorn and take a seat; Kingpen Slim’s upcoming mixtape Beam Up 2 is set to drop right here on DJBooth July 28. And, action…
