Everything’s better when backed by a live band. Everything. Even sex. Did I say that out loud? The point is, DJBooth Freestyle Alum and day job quitter Laws has stepped back in the Booth, and this time he’s rolling deep with The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, a nine piece, Chicago based horn crew that are becomingly an increasingly large part of the hip-hop scene. On their new collaborative record Never, also featuring a smooth hook from singer Dave Young, Laws uses the…well…hypnotically dope production and instrumentation laid down by the Brass Ensemble to tell the story of his rise through the rap ranks, and the quasi friends he had to leave behind along the way, “Told my crew…I’m goin to the battle now / they said are you f**king crazy? / that’s when I knew…we’d never be closer than handshakes.” Don’t worry Laws, you’ve got a friend in the Booth, and we completely support your battle rhyming desires. While Never isn’t currently attached to any project, fans should keep an ear out for Laws’ upcoming, Paul McCartney inspired (yeah, seriously) mixtape, coming soon.
