For more than 400 years, Echinacea has been used to treat the common cold. Contemporary studies, however, suggest that the herb is nothing more than a placebo. Never one to jump to conclusions, Toki Wright weighs both sides of the issue on a new single, part of his next independent full-length. The perennial conflict between skepticism and trust in tradition is just one of many threads running through the Rhymesayers signee’s verses, which are overstuffed with intricate internal rhymes and thought-provoking digressions. Twin Cities beat crew Big Cats, who are about to head out on a Midwest tour, back the emcee’s ruminations with stop-start percussion, synth-bass blurts and fluttering flute/woodwind samples. Extended Pangaea Prelude has yet to receive a solid drop date from the label brass. While you wait for further details, why not take a listen to Toki’s last Booth feature, Simplest Things (Uhuru Dubplate)?
