Qualmes’ stage name may be one letter away from a word meaning “uneasy feelings” but, after listening to his latest effort, I can’t see the Pasadena repper struggling with fear or self-doubt. On the contrary, the latest entry in his Direct Deposit series exudes self-assured swag from beginning to end. R8D!0‘s quirky production, sampled from the Doobie Brothers’ It Keeps You Runnin’, backs the Nothing’s Hollywood rhymesayer as he trumpets his potential for greatness: “I ain’t never settle / Call myself a[n] underachiever even with 10 Olympic medals.” Perennial reader fave Thurz delivers a similarly witty, braggadocious 16 on the back end. Like what you’re hearing? Then keep it locked to the Booth for further Direct Deposit jams, dropping every first and 15th via the artist’s official site.
