Last we heard from Mike Schpitz, on late-September mixtape leak Rolllinnn’, I wondered how the Booth fave could afford to spend the afternoon cruising his around the block, considering the sky-high gas prices in the Windy City. On the follow-up, making its world premiere right here on our pages, we get the answer: he drastically cut down on his weed budget. Like it’s predecessor, Pay Back finds Schpitz borrowing an instrumental from a Chuck Inglish beat tape; over the Cool Kids producer’s moody keys, screwed samples and chugging percussion rhythm, the Kansas City native (and freestyle series alum) makes an appeal to our sense of generosity: “Can I borrow a dollar? I swear I’ll pay you back… I’m just tryin’ to get a dime bag so I can relax.” After the down-to-earth, lyrically on-point verses Schpitz delivers here, I have a feeling Boothgoers will find it in their hearts to help the man out—but I’ll let y’all have the final say. Free street album The Prize Package Vol. 2 currently lacks a drop date, but we’ll keep you supplied with all the latest on the forthcoming set.
