Lorenzo Asher‘s Booth features to date have seen the Brooklyn-by-way-of-Cleveland spitter grappling with heavy subject matter: Begin found him expressing uncertainty over his future, and The Color of Ignorance dealt with the complexities of an interracial relationship. Dope as those records were, fans will likely find it a refreshing change of pace to hear the rapper simply grab the mic and go H.A.M. on Net Worth, the latest single off his forthcoming mixtape. Over JL‘s bombastic string-percussion beat, Asher hits the ground running, spitting bold and arrogant bars on the time-tested topics of women, cash, drugs and fly sh*t. Slaughterhouse member Royce da 5’9” assists on the guest tip, lending his masterful flows to the record’s closing verse. Not all on this braggadocious banger is as it seems, however; in the record’s beat-switched intro and outro, the rapper spits a few bars about the pain and struggle that underlie his bravado. Liquor, Love, Loud and Loyalty as yet lacks a drop date, but we’ll keep you supplied with further details and song releases as they emerge.
