Kyle Rapps‘s last Booth feature, mixtape single Black Suburbs, found the up-and-comer reminiscing about the experience of growing up poor in affluent Princeton, NJ. On the freshly-minted follow-up, released in conjunction with director Robbie Barclay‘s official visuals, he shifts gears to celebrate the soaring Architecture of his adopted hometown, NYC. Project collaborator Belief provides a stark, percussion-driven beat to accompany the headliner’s sardonic bars, and West Coast stalwart MURS grabs the mic to drop a little knowledge on the back. Architecture is just one of many bangers to be found on Kyle’s SUB street album, available in The DJBooth as of June.
