Knowledge Medina and his stepbrother, Jo-L, “ain’t no thugs,” but that doesn’t stop them from starting a full-blown Riot on this cut, single numero uno off their forthcoming collaborative full-length. Making its exclusive world premiere in the Booth, this joint is a collaborative effort on both sides of the boards; over their own driving, yet melodic keyboard-loop grooves, the Floridian Booth fave and his North Carolina-based fam resolve to do what it takes to survive and thrive in the cold world of the streets. Panhandle State emcee Serum, a relative newcomer to our pages (he introduced himself with Afro Pick 2 late last year), showcases his head-spinning flow in a defiant closing 16. Now that you’ve gotten a taste, are you craving more from the fraternal duo? Then keep it locked for further singles leading up to the February arrival of Family Ties: The Medina Project.
