The Strong Arm Steady Gang‘s Booth debut, Trunk Music, earned a more-than-respectable 3.25-star average rating but, as it turns out, that track was only the very beginning of what Krondon, Phil Da Agony, Mitchy Slik and company have to offer. Now, the West Coast crew are back in the Booth and ready to really Get Started with feature number two. Leaked to the ‘net in an unfinished version earlier this month but presented here in its final, official form, this new single begins with a guest verse from Talib Kweli. The conscious rap icon sounds right at home over Madlib‘s piano-loop beat (featuring a hook sampled from Roxanne Shante’s Def Fresh Crew) and the SAS crew are equally on point, lacing the track with some sage lyrical insights (“It ain’t all about gettin’ a check, just get it off of your chest/ Before you earn a dollar earn your respect.”) Craving more white-hot rhymes and tuneful beats? Keep it locked to our front page for the latest on Strong Arm Steady’s Stoney Johnson LP, produced entirely by Madlib.
