Last summer Shaun Boothe was on a hell of a roll in the Booth. From an exclusive freestyle to the Talib Kweli assisted Concepts and more, the Toronto native was lighting up our ratings like Wiz lights up joints. And then….an extended hiatus….which has thankfully ended today with the release of new promo single Do It For You. Whatever Boothe was up to all that time he clearly hasn’t lost a step when it comes to his beats and rhymes, grabbing producer Nineteen85’s classic hip-hop sounding, soul record sampling, head nodding beat to lay down his ode to the fans who are his true motivation. Speaking of which, the man doesn’t show any signs of rust on the mic, dropping the same witty, easily relatable and often hilarious bars that first won him a following on our pages: “I’ll take a bullet for this bulls**t, just not in the head.” Is Boothe working on a new album? Is this just the first shot in an upcoming volley, or will he fade into the background once again? Right now all we have are questions, keep it locked to DJBooth for the answers.
