“Got my Vans on, but they look like sneakers…” Whoops, wrong song. Whereas The Pack were simply eager to show off their spotless kicks, Booth newcomer T. Mills uses his footwear as a signifier of his haughty disregard for the female gender. As the new Columbia Records signee explains on his latest single: “I don’t treat ‘em, I don’t love ‘em, I just F*ck Em (With My Vans On).” Here, Omen & Audio BLK of EMO team up behind the boards, cooking up a glossy synth backdrop for the Cali representative’s playeriffic verses, packed with one-liners sure to elicit guilty chuckles from the fellas: “These b*tches are trampolines, they just fill a quota / You know, once you jump off then the thrill is over.” The ladies? They might not be laughing quite so hard—then again, some women seem to like the swag-drenched, “bad motherf*cker” type. Guess you’ll just have to weigh in yourselves and let me know. Those who are indeed lovin’ it can hear plenty more from this rising star on forthcoming free album Leaving Home, scheduled hit the ‘net July 22.
