The phrase “Square Off” may evoke images of boxers scowling at one another from opposite corners of a ring, but don’t get it twisted – as evidenced by their laid-back Booth debut, Trips, Slim and Gleamz are more lovers than fighters. Respectively the sons and brother-in-law of the great Doug E. Fresh, the trio do the rapper/producer/human-beatbox proud on newly-leaked EP cut Show Off. Flowing over the silky, bell-driven sample work of North Carolina native 9th Wonder, the threesome indulge in some witty lyrical stunting, flaunting their mic skills, their taste in whips and (last, but by no means least) their prodigious female appeal. Assisting on the guest tip is Harlemite R&B singer and Pharrell Williams protege Teyana Taylor, who brings the record home with some fittingly luxuriant chorus vocals. So, Booth readers, has all of Square Off’s showing-off paid off? If this braggadociously smooth banger leaves you craving more, you’re sure to find more to your liking on their Money, Moet & Memories EP, set to hit the ‘net for free download January 11.
