Raz Simone doesn’t need to spit his autobiography to demonstrate that he’s been through some heavy sh*t in his day; the man’s gruff, weathered flow speaks for itself. On newly-released EP standout These Kids Throw Rocks, the Seattle repper proves that first impression correct, shedding light on the circumstances that he rose above to become the scarred, but tenacious individual he is today. Simone’s bracing chronicle of poverty, crime and familial strife, delivered over Nima Skeemz’ brooding keyboard chords, receives a candid visual accompaniment courtesy of the artist himself. For this record, reader-acclaimed single Sometimes I Don’t and much more, check out debut EP Solomon Samuel Simone, released March 31, following a Booth-exclusive online listening session.
