From across the pond, a brand-new style of hip-hop music has taken a cruise liner straight to the Booth! The sub-genre is called “runk” (a portmanteau of “rap” and “punk”), and Mams Taylor is its pioneer (if you’ve met my circle of friends, you know it’s gonna catch on!) His lead single (and Booth debut) finds him resurrecting a formerly-trendy lyrical theme, joining countless past artists as he celebrates the fact his Girl Gotta Girlfriend—now he’ll never have to spend the night alone! Snoop Dogg and Bobby V take their player style international, but it’s Benny Cassette‘s drum-synth boardwork that makes this Girl Gotta Girlfriend story stand out from the archive-load of similarly-themed jams. If you’re down with the runk movement, you can get the full experience on Mams’ debut album, Persona Non Grata (set to drop August 25th).
