When your DJBooth debut involves resurrecting hip-hop alongside Big K.R.I.T. it’s hard to top an introduction like that, but grabbing some production from the legendary ?uestlove of The Roots is a hell of a start. For his latest single Lyn Charles says Farewell Philadelphia over an organic, perfectly timed beat from the aforementioned ?uest, using the opportunity to transcend the “crabs in a bucket” mentality that drags so many rappers down, even in their own hometown. Add in a smooth hook from Charles and a guest verse from Ryshon Jones, who just made his own solo DJBooth debut, and you’ve got the perfect way to announce Charles’ upcoming Golden Louis EP, which is currently still awaiting a release date.
