Been jonesing for a new online series to keep tabs on? Beatsmith Terrace Martin‘s got you covered like bedsheets – to build anticipation of the 2010 release of his forthcoming The Demo LP, the West Coast mainstay’s kicked off a weekly series entitled The Demo Preview, beginning with a brand new cut called… wait for it… The Demo. The title is the only predictable element of this track, which sees Martin serving up an exultant blend of synth fanfare and hard-hitting percussion as his collaborators fire off their highest-caliber lyrical ammunition. Watts City rapper Bad Lucc and recent Booth interview-ee Wiz Khalifa head off the pack, the latter lacing the track with creatively-rhymed lines like, “[If you] think too small I get my ant-eat on/ and make sure all of the food in the pantry’s gone.” Jamaican femcee Lady G steps up to the mic third, delivering her opening bars a cappella, and Cali icon Kurupt jumps on board to end the track on an aggressive note. The headliner, however, says it best: “It’s just hip-hop.” If you like what you’re hearing, keep it locked to the Booth for future entries in Terrace Martin’s weekly series.
