Booth newcomer T. Gaines might not have a Basquiat painting, Beyoncé as his wife or an NBA team, but when it comes to what really matters—mic skills—he is Better Than Hov. The Windy City native ain’t just talk; he backs up his claim on this hi-octane record. Powered by a cacophony of cascading synths and a thunderous bass, DJ‘s beat certainly sounds like something Hov would enjoy. Atop the production, Gaines makes a strong case for his superiority over the rap mogul, showcasing a fiery energy and a hard-hitting, slightly slurred flow. Better Than Hov can be found on Gaines’ The Groove God EP, out now via Audiomack.
