Popularized by Louis Armstrong, St James Infirmary Blues depicts a young man fantasizing about his own death after seeing his girl lying on a slab in the titular clinic. Though Mike Schpitz and Brotha-Gif take inspiration from the morbid folk standard on joint single St. James Blues (a Booth-exclusive world premiere), the emcees clearly aren’t planning on giving up the ghost anytime soon. On the contrary, as they make clear over D-Que‘s brassy sample work, they’ve got plenty of hustle in them before they call it quits. Singer Kim Hoffa ties the record together with some smooth, self-assured guest vocals. This joint isn’t part of a larger project, but Mike Schpitz fans can hear more on recent Slot-A collab Have You Seen My Stapler?, available for free streaming and download in the Booth.
