When DJBooth Editor Nathan S. sent me a little motivation music this morning I wondered if the online premiere of OverAchiever was a subliminal message telling me I need to step my game up, but regardless, it’s a hell of a way to start off the day. Production wise, Kajimir Royale provides a beat that sounds like a sunny day on Miami Beach. Meanwhile, Rahzel Jr. (son of Rahzel from the legendary Roots crew) lives up to his pedigree with bars like “Your career’s a short stay/ temporary like the Day’s Inn/ I’m only a couple days in/ they calling me amazing.” Ironically, this song falls short of its aim as singer B-Fuego emits a chorus that “underachieves”. While strong verses from Rahzel Jr. and partner-in-rhyme Biggz (who sounds like a less stoned Styles P) make OverAchiever a good listen, the song doesn’t quite leave you “hooked”. But who cares what I think? Let’s hear what the Booth has to say! If y’all are digging this, then be sure to check out Rahzel Jr.’s OverAchievement LP in May.
