Awe-inspiring as it is to hear Locksmith simply go hard on the mic, the Golden State emcee is at his best when spitting brutally honest bars about his personal experiences. On new mixtape single Imperfect, he returns to the confessional mode of the reader-acclaimed Hardest Song Ever, spitting about the guilt, shame and self-doubt he experienced while waiting for his ex-girlfriend outside an abortion clinic. Los Angeles neighbor and frequent collaborator Jarell Perry jumps on Lock and Mike Blakenship‘s pensive keyboard beat to deliver a guest hook. Amadeuz Christ directs the official visuals, co-starring Tyra Young and Devon Libran. For Imperfect and much more, cop Locksmith’s A Thousand Cuts street album, available now for streaming and purchase in the Booth.
