As a sorta socially-awkward youngster, I enjoyed my share of all-night video game binges, and it sounds like T!Katz emcee o8o can relate—on his first solo feature (making its online premiere right here in the Booth), the Atlanta-based rapper states with pride that, from dusk till dawn, “I’m On It.” o8o’s own chip music-meets-garbage disposal production would have made the perfect soundtrack to my days as a bleary-eyed NES addict, but its driving 8-bit grind is an equally fitting accompaniment to the artist’s account of sleepless nights spent questing for musical success. Pushing his aggressively bouncy, swagger-dripping Southern flow to the limit, o8o spits a retro-trendy series of allusive boasts—if you can appreciate the slightly nerdy appeal of a “Wu-Tang/Liu Kang” couplet, this is undoubtedly the record for you; even if o8o’s hipsterish brand of braggodocio isn’t your cup of tea, though, you owe it to yourself to stick around for his bangin’ bad-cartridge breakdown on the back end. This Is My Sh*t has yet to receive a solid release date, but fans can keep it locked to the Booth for more from both o8o and the T!Katz.
