What were you doing in 1995? I’d like to say I was balling hard and listening to the best of what hip-hop had to offer but, to be honest, I spent most of the year sitting around in PJs, watching Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Orlando-born rhymesayer Lafayette Stokely was still in Pampers when Me Against the World dropped, but dreams of rap stardom were already germinating in his three-year-old-brain. On his latest single, a Booth-exclusive world premiere, he dredges the depths of his childhood memories, chronicling his transformation from one bad motherf**king toddler into the hustler he is today. Bolarino provides an era-appropriate instrumental backdrop for his bars. For this nostalgia-laced banger, previous single Comin’ From the City and more, check out Stokely’s Life’s Journey: Life Goes On LP, out now.
