It’s a sad fact of life that, no matter how much blood, sweat and tears you expend in pursuit of your dreams, success is never a sure thing. But if you don’t give it your all, you’ll Always Wonder what might have been. On his latest single and debut DJBooth feature, Empire State up-and-comer Oliver Power tackles this dilemma head-on. Backed by A.F.‘s pensive electronic production, the emcee acknowledges his uncertainty regarding what lies ahead: ”I’m feeling scared, unprepared for what’s about to happen / Will I blow, will I go, will I fail at rappin’?” In the end, he resolves simply to go hard and let the chips fall where they may. Power’s got the right attitude, but does he have the skills to match? I think I know the answer, but Booth readers, of course, get to lay down the final verdict. If you’re feeling Always Wonder, keep your browsers locked for further news and tunes leading up to the August arrival of Oliver’s new album, In Dreams.
