On his first Booth feature, San Bernadino repper Noa James pays musical tribute to one of his chief influences: his late grandfather, Brezell Allen. With the mellow, guitar-laced production of Curtiss King as his backdrop, the up-and-coming emcee informs listeners just how profound of an impact Mr. Jones, and the rest of his family, has on his artistic vision and life path. Ms. James ties the record together with a smooth, soulful hook. Those digging this standout cut can hear more on the artist’s Intelligent, Elegant, Elephant: Humble Power EP, released May 3, and available now online.
