Stay in school even though your heart’s not in it, or sacrifice (relative) security to pursue music full-time? For many rap hopefuls, this question is one of the most crucial ones they’ll ever have to answer. Well aware of the risks involved, but nonetheless determined to shoot For the Stars, St. Louis emcee Orie pledges that this will be his Last Semester on the latest leak off this forthcoming, Booth-sponsored mixtape. An exclusive world premiere, this pensive cut finds Orie, as usual, showcasing his expertise on both sides of the boards. With his own understated synths and rolling percussion bumping in the background, the Midwest native struggles with self-doubt over his decision: “To them, I am just another black statistic / droppin’ out of college, can’t pass statistics.” In the end, though, he expresses faith that he is that one-in-a-million who’s destined for greatness. Like what you’re hearing? Stay tuned for more exclusive world premieres each Monday leading up to the April 25, arrival of Orie’s Booth-sponsored street album, Twenty-20.
