On July 28, dopeRoots (a partnership between top hip-hop blogs 2DopeBoyz and illRoots) will team up with HipHopDX to release the free online album Broken Headphones (likely to be available for download on the Booth). A month before that, dopeRoots will be dropping a preview mixtape, aptly titled There’s Only One Month Left. The Booth’s attention is already piqued, because that mixtape will contain No One’s Allowed, a new track from Miami native and Booth newcomer QuESt. Forgoing the Khaled-promoted, bass-heavy sound commonly associated with the 305 area code in favor of a hipster-underground style, QuESt and Booth favorite XV join forces to showcase their distinctive, border-crossing flows over Woody‘s old-school, sampled boardwork. If you’re digging QuEST’s sunny Miami sound, be sure to check back with us this July for the emcee’s contribution to our exclusive freestyle series.
