Anyone who’s been a regular reader of the DJBooth knows that Outasight‘s busted his ass to get the Shine he so richly deserves. For those who haven’t followed his career over the course of four-plus years, the Big Apple stalwart takes the opportunity to correct those who would call his success story “overnight:” “It was years in the making, took a whole lot of work, with a whole lot of meetings. / I ain’t never got a callback, [it] never was a drawback / Even with a short stack, I was all in.” Over Big Jerm and E. Dan‘s ebullient boardwork, the freestyle series alumnus is joined on the mic by fellow alt-rap buzzmaker Chiddy, of Chiddy Bang fame. Rex Arrow directs the record’s official visuals. Fans will be able to find this motivational banger and much more on the artist’s debut studio album, Nights Like These, scheduled for release November 27.
