First things first: Shootin’ Cops, the latest leaked track off Numonics’ forthcoming street album, is not a spiritual successor to Ice-T’s infamous Cop Killer. In fact, the title doesn’t have a whole hell of a lot to do with the record itself, which finds the West Coast beatsmith serving up an intricate synth/bell instrumental as Inglewood natives Shawn Chrystopher and El Prez, along with Boston representative J The S (who also contributes a flowed hook) deliver their thoughts on a wide variety of topics, from weed and cash to – in Jake’s case – kidnapping rings and Mountain Dew-induced infertility (I think?). On a track this packed with talent, is it possible to pick a favorite verse? I can’t, but I’m sure you’ll have some thoughts on the matter. The IM KING/DJBooth.net/sponsored Being Cool Doesn’t Pay the Bills mixtape has been pushed back from its March 29, release to a yet-unspecified date due – stay tuned for the latest! – but those digging the record can tide themselves over with Animal Style and Wish You Were Here, the recent, Booth-sponsored street albums from El Prez and J The S, as well as Shawn Chrys’ brand new EP, The Audition.
