The True 2 Life Music crew might hail from Brooklyn, but their sound knows no region. Their latest effort, Dopefiend Willie (a Booth-exclusive world premiere), has a sound that might make you think the crew resides in L.A., not N.Y. The group takes it back with a swinging, West Coast beat driven by a piercing percussion rhythm; it’ll have you feeling like it’s ‘92. Atop the in-house produced beat, True 2 Life Music emcees Concise, K.Words and Slangston Hughes deliver edgy, street-oriented bars that would bring a tear to Pac’s eye. The cut isn’t all heavy; the smoother-than-silk, breezy hook is a nice change of pace in comparison to the gritty verses. Dopefiend Willie will be part of the trio’s forthcoming, DJBooth-hosted Black Gods Never Die LP, set to drop August 27.
