To those lucky enough to live in relative safety (myself included), the poker-faced, often bravado-laden manner in which many hip-hop artists approach the topic of violent crime can be seen as trivializing an all-too-serious topic—in truth, of course, that cold-eyed outlook is a natural, if somewhat tragic, response to life in an area where shooting deaths are commonplace.  If you need a reminder of how absolutely terrifying firearms can be, take a listen to Question?‘s latest feature; making its exclusive world premiere here in the Booth, Me and a Gun finds the San Antonio up-and-comer describing how quickly a liquor-soaked night on the town can turn treacherous when deadly weapons are involved.  Centered around a pitch-shifted sample from Tori Amos’ cut of the same name, J.R. Rotem‘s piano-driven instrumental leaves the focus on Question?‘s chilling narrative—the end result is a lyrically vivid, bracingly real cut that provides plenty of food for thought.  Question?‘s Is It Cuz I’m White mixtape is set to drop “soon;” fans should keep it locked to the Booth for two more exclusive premieres in the next two weeks.
