If you ask Rich Kidd, there are three things you should never leave home without: “a Philly to smoke,” “a jimmy to poke” and “a semiautomatic under your coat.” Why? ‘Cause It’s Real Like That. That list of essential items is just one of many pearls of wisdom the T-Dot rapper/producer shares with listeners on the freshly-released lead single off his next mixtape. As usual, Kidd does his own production, crafting a slow-rolling, guitar-laced beat to back his raw and authentic lyrical reflections. Charlotte, North Carolina buzzmaker (and “cult rap” pioneer) Deniro Farrar guests, revisiting an adolescence spent fighting, avoiding incarceration and hustling to support his family on the closing verse. Need more realness in your life? Then watch our pages for more fresh song releases leading up to the August 1, arrival of Rich Kidd’s new street album, We on Some Rich Kidd Sh*t Vol. 7. In the meantime, April’s In My Opinion LP is still available for free streaming and download in the Booth.
