Hey, Tayyib Ali, making us wait a full year for new material is just too long. Sorry to be so blunt, but there was No Other Way to drive the point home. Though his last Booth feature received plenty of positive reviews Way Back When it was featured in January of 2013, we didn’t hear from Ali for the rest of the year. Well, he is back now and, given that he has a project in the works, I bet we will see him again real soon. Especially when summer rolls around—after all, this record’s breezy, mellow Ben Rosen beat is made for warm weather. The Philly native exhibits a relaxed (yet personable and fun) flow that makes this effort go down easier than a tall glass of lemonade on a hot summer day. That project I was talking about, Keyston3, does not have a drop date, but we’ll keep you posted as further details emerge.
