One of the highlights of a recent trip to Memphis was getting to go to the Civil Rights Museum, located in the hotel where Martin Luther King was assassinated. Since my visit, the movement, King and race have been at the forefront of my mind. Reading my thoughts, Booth newcomer Tigo B. makes his debut on our pages with Real N*ggas. The title may suggest a “gangsta”-type record, but it is anything but. Over a simple yet effective Nubreedz beat (peppered with samples from some of the movement’s most important figures), Tigo engages us with some deep, thought-provoking bars. He even does some soulful crooning for good measure. For more from this intelligent emcee, check out his Rise: A Gemini Story project, out now.
