Six months ago, the Booth introduced Hot Dollar’s I Got 2 Get It featuring Trey Songz. Members enjoyed Trey’s futuristic efforts on the hook, but weren’t feeling Dollar’s lyrics or delivery. Well, since then producer Get Cool’s bass-bumping electronica-fused I Got to Get It has made its way into the hands of emcee Topic, and the West Coast native (who dropped by the Booth last year with his single, Creep and Crawl) has made it all his own. Emerging with a club-friendly, grind-ready style that’s different from what he’s displayed in the past, Topic’s material might be secondhand, but his punch lines certainly are not. With Songz’ catchy and ultramodern chorus still intact, the two compliment each other well. Topic’s debut album, American Hustler: This is My Life, is due out September 23.
