Solitair‘s last non-exclusive freestyle feature found the Black Jays rapper enjoying a leisurely Summertime drive, gazing at all the fine females as he rolled along the city streets. As we all know, life can’t always be such a breeze; thus, on new feature The World Is Filled (making its world premiere right here in the Booth!), the T-dot native takes us to the part of town where violence is commonplace, gunshots are the soundtrack to everyday life, and every girl in the club has a store-bought set of DDs. True to his name, Solitair handles this track all on his lonesome, backing his own rhymes with a hypnotically jazzy, slightly claustrophobic sampled beat, and topping the record off with a sung hook adapted from Biggie‘s classic cut of the same name. Originally submitted for inclusion on our own Haiti aid mixtape, Rhymes & Rhythm for Relief (available for download with a minimum donation of five dollars), this cut didn’t make it onto the final tracklist, but those who like what they’re hearing can find World Is Filled and much more on The Soloist, a compilation of previously-unreleased material which has yet to receive a solid release date.
