If hip-hop was a town, the corner store would have to be located smack dab in the center of the city. It has everything you could possibly need and not just a snack or a pack of smokes either; you can find a few nice ladies, some wise elders, who are quick to give advice, or even someone who shouldn’t be at your corner store. Pretty busy, huh? Well it’s just another day in the life of DJBooth newcomer Lafayette Stokely. On Corner Store Blues, a standout selection from his latest album, Life’s Journey, the Brooklyn emcee takes us trough a quick trip to the corner store. As the beat, courtesy of producer Russ Monroe, flutters, Stokely, provides insight into all the on-goings at his local spot with a casual yet fluid delivery. Before you head out to grab a snack at your corner store be sure to cop Life’s Journey, which was released last week and is available for free download via Stokely’s Bandcamp.
