It’s impossible to please Errrybody with a single record, but Masia One might just have come close with the lineup of collaborators she’s assembled for her first Booth feature. A Singapore-born rapper and graffiti artist who fell in love with hip-hop upon running into a bootleg copy of Public Enemy’s It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, the up-and-comer offers a full showcase of her syncretistic, globally-minded style on this freshly-released joint, lacing an unknown beatsmith’s hypnotic, pared-down club production with fractured snapshots of the metropolitan nightlife and brand shout-outs to the likes of Pepsi-Cola and Motorola. Pharrell Williams assists on the guest tip, doing a little big-money stunting before handing the mic to Game for a gruff closer. Thunderheist frontwoman and hipster DJ Isis Salam fills in the gaps with some Island-influenced hook vocals. Digging it? For the original version of Errrybody and much more, check out Masia One’s Bootleg Culture sampler when it hits record store shelves and online retailers September 18.
