If you were alive and had ears (and weren’t a cornstalk) in 1997, I’m betting you could still hum the tune of Sex and Candy, the one hit scored by rock group Marcy Playground. I’m not gonna lie, I loved that song – but if you didn’t, you’ll be pleased to hear that this Sex and Candy, the first Booth feature from up-and-coming emcee Phreshy, has nothing but a title and lyrical theme in common with that joint. This orally-fixated single sees the Atlantic Records newcomer hooking up with Next Selection singer Krys Ivory over the sizzling keyboards and handclaps of producer Tommy Hittz. While freaky food metaphors aren’t the newest lyrical strategy in the book, the collaborators tackle the concept with panache – and I’ve got to hand it to the guy for exposing the inherent hilarity in the word “Nutrageous.” Seriously, how did I ever look at one of those without cracking up? Anyway, those who like what they’re hearing should keep it locked for release details on SMC x SC, a collaborative mixtape with previously-featured duo Surf Club and Kidd Domination.
