Who needs pills and powder when you’re Livin’ Loaded like Booth newcomer Locksmith? On the lead single off his next full-length, the West Coast underground rhymesayer and Frontline member reminds listeners that achieving one’s dreams is more exhilarating than any narcotic. Brandon DeShay crafts an airy, string-sampled beat to back the artist as he toasts his successes, exulting in having proved his haters wrong. NYC vocalist Olamide Faison handles the hook, and director Brian Storm collaborates with Locksmith on the record’s official video. Craving more? Then keep it locked for more fresh song releases leading up to the first-quarter arrival of new album The Green Box.
