With all the materialistic, manufactured hip-hop flooding the rap game, it appears as though authentic cuts and true artistry have been locked away in a cellar, deep down in hip-hop’s basement. Good thing a Locksmith is on call, ready to unlock the door for artists looking to make a difference with their music. On Transitions, which was conceptualized by Jamla head honcho 9th Wonder, Locksmith takes aim at the fakers, who are more obsessed with Twitter followers than bars. Although the Khrysis & Eric G co-produced track is relatively perky, the Cali native uses his aggressive flow as he absolutely nails every line. Even though the beat changes midway through, Lock’s flow doesn’t, seamlessly transitioning (see what I did there?) without missing a beat. Locksmith’s new album, The Green Box, is coming soon, but in the meantime peep his last DJBooth feature, Living Loaded.
