You know Peter Jackson, the bearded New Zealander who adapted Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy into three of the biggest blockbusters in cinema history?  Well, this Booth newcomer is an entirely different person, but, like the director who shares his name, Peter Jackson the emcee has a lot of cash—so much, in fact, that his neighbors know him as the Paper Boy.  On the latest single off his yet-untitled debut LP, the T-dot native describes his beginnings as a hungry go-getter working a paper route, the parties than padded his pockets during his college years, and how he ultimately grew into high-rolling rapper getting rich off sold-out shows. In between Jackson’s opening and closing verses, Detroit’s Royce Da 5’9 steps up to the mic to spit a colorful, metaphor-laced chronicle of his own paper chase.  Sheldon Moore‘s relatively sparse, percussion-driven production leaves the emcees’ rhymes front and center, but, with the help of a clever bicycle-bell sound effect, brings enough personality to keep Paper Boy rolling through listeners’ heads, stirring up some buzz for the November release of It Was All a Dream.
