Considering the rave reader reviews the up-and-comer earned for his first feature, Time Flies, Tom P can hardly be thought of as a long-shot in the Booth; nonetheless, I have a feeling our regulars will be happy to follow the Decatur, Georgia representative’s lead when he asks us to “Root for the Underdog” on this new, unreleased cut. Here, the artist takes a page from fellow Southern buzzmaker Yelawolf‘s book, playing up his small-town background in technically impressive verses. Backed by J. Pardon‘s stark, street-ready beat, he offers those who have yet to jump on his bandwagon a brief introduction: “They call me Tom P., the city slicker, the town drunk, the white Twista…” After the (relatively) laid-back opening, he proceeds to prove that latter sobriquet accurate, launching into a blazing-fast flurry of double-time rhymes. This record, as mentioned above, isn’t set for inclusion on any forthcoming project, but those left rooting for Tom P. after hearing this dazzling lyrical display can, of course, keep it locked to the Booth for all the latest news and tunes.
