Street smarts, know-how, savoir faire; whatever you call it, Mean Doe Green‘s got it. On his latest single (a Booth-exclusive world premiere!), the Cali representative formerly known as Doey Rock gathers a few of his savviest colleagues to pay tribute to that rare (and dangerous) breed: the Intelligent Hoodlum. Backed by Nicatyne‘s twanging guitar arpeggios and tapped-glass percussion, the freestyle series alumnus slugs back a boilermaker or two before giving us a rundown of what’s been on his mind lately, from his worries about his health, to his ongoing paper chase, to the safety of his daughter: “Low sodium diet, ‘cause my blood pressure’s getting scarier / Daughter’s getting bigger so my pistol’s growin with her / The chicks is prettier, but I ‘keep focused on the figures.“ Joining M.D.G on the guest tip, Strong Arm Steady member (and fellow freestyle alum) Krondon and Booth newcomers Silence Dem All and Black Zeek lace the record’s back three-fourths with their own brand of lyrical knowledge. Digging Mean Doe Green’s gritty, yet intellectually stimulating style? More bangers await on his self-titled full-length, coming in April.
