Unfortunate as it may be, most hip-hop heads haven’t been properly acquainted with Zechariah Wise, J-Cosell, DJ Dialtone and Jady Experience; If Only They’d Listen to one of Team Demo‘s life-changing instrumentals, however, the scales would fall from their eyes and they’d instantly be transformed into lifelong fans – that’s the idea, anyway. On their first Booth feature, the Crime Wave crew flip a Chipmunked sample from Marvin Gaye’s Life Is for Living into a soulfully head-nodding backdrop for lyrical contributions by a D.C. heavyweight, a Booth-acclaimed, Virginia-based buzzmaker, and a fresh face; Wale and K-Beta, unsurprisingly, run circles ‘round the track’s swung groove on the front and back ends, and newcomer Jo’Lyce proves himself an up-and-comer to watch on his slightly stiffer, but nonetheless impressive middle verse. If this cut’s made a convert out of you, keep it locked; Team Demo’s forthcoming project currently has neither a title nor a release date, but we’ll be sure to bring you all the latest.
