You’re not going to come out ahead. Be that as it may, Faustian pacts are excellent grist for the artistic mill. Case in point: Booth newcomer Notion‘s latest single, which finds the Seattle repper evoking the timeless theme to express his feeling on his grind.

Notion takes an appropriately dark, poetic tack on the mic, describing the circumstances that led up to his meeting with the man downstairs. Does this moody banger leave you craving more? You’re in luck; released in April, the artist’s aptly-titled Three Songs With MTK EP is available on Nation’s official site for the low, low price of
