We’ve already featured a whopping five tracks off Locksmith‘s latest digital LP, but the project still packs several more cuts dope enough to deserve a single release—maybe not a thousand, but quite a few. Today, the Golden State lyricist unleashes number six, along with some official visuals by Ryan White. On Jaded, an understated synth beat by Nova K. accompanies verses detailing the freestyle series alum‘s emotional struggles with his father’s failing health, as well as his frustration with haters’ heedless negativity. Olamide Faison lends his vocals to the hook. A Thousand Cuts is available now on iTunes, as well as being freely streamable in The DJBooth.
