On newly-released promo single Life Is Crazy, Booth newcomer Soulbrotha expresses a popular sentiment that rings true regardless of how many times it’s repeated: we should appreciate the lives we’ve got, since we’re not going to get another go-round. With producer AEON‘s sweeping, string-driven sample (taken from Gladys Knight’s cover of Curtis Mayfield’s The Makings of You) providing an introspective instrumental backdrop, the emcee employs a distinctive, slightly choppy flow as he addresses a few of the big existential questions that we all ponder at one point or another (“What’s the purpose of it all?” “Why does life suck?”). Though the subject matter is a little heavy, this record couldn’t have come at a better time – with the American economy still in shambles, there’s a big, big market for reassuring music; thus, Life Is Crazy‘s “grass is always greener” message should get Soulbrotha plenty of love both in and out of the Booth.
