Many emcees talk tough, but wouldn’t last for 15 minutes in the ‘hood after dark. Termanology is one of the few with the savoir-faire to withstand whatever the streets may throw at him—and if you don’t believe him, simply ask around in his native Boston. Borrowing its title from Jeru the Damaja’s D. Original, new promo single Streetwise sees the reader fave touting his realness, survival skills and mic prowess over beatsmith Young Moe‘s fluttering piano loops. Frequent collaborator Statik Selektah assists behind the wheels of steel, flipping a sample from the aforementioned hip-hop classic on the hook. Streetwise isn’t part of anything larger, but Term fans who haven’t already copped the project can hear more on Hood Politics 7, hosted by DJ Deadeye and available online as of April 5.
