Don’t be so quick to label Truck North as a rapper. On his first Booth appearance since February, North wants us to know that, in addition to being an emcee, he is also a certified Rock N’ Rolla. The Philadelphia native, who is a close friend of The Roots, relies on his powerful delivery to move the track along. Despite the demonstrative, guitar based beat, composed by Dame The Great and Schooley V, Truck doesn’t get drowned out, delivering several memorable lines with a gritty flow, perfectly blending the rock and roll foundation with a distinct hip-hop flavor. Rock N’ Rolla is the third single off his forthcoming Our American Cousin EP, coming soon.
