If you thought you had Pay$0z pegged, think again—though the gritty punchline-fest that was Frame It, the Weezy-sampling Go Hard, and his Booth-exclusive Industry Life freestyle all achieved nearly unanimous reader acclaim, the emcee’s latest record goes for an entirely different sound, and comes out the fresher for it. Making its world premiere at this very site, this cut finds Pay$0z Drivin’ alongside AC, the underground rapper who Got Head In The DJ Booth just last week. Celebrating the fast life and all the perks that come with being at the top of one’s game, both emcees delivery witty, wordplay-heavy verses that elevate the record far above your usual exercise in paper-stacking, and beatsmith Freeze adds to the exultant ambience with a propulsive funk-rock groove. Drivin’ is set for inclusion on Pay$0z’ illroots-sponsored Success Is A Mile Away Mixtape (set to drop late this month), which will pave the way for his forthcoming, DJBooth/Team Rsinal-cosponsored LP, Going Against the Grain (set to drop in April).
