The intellectually gifted have it tough – from the excruciating logic puzzles, to the boring MENSA meetings, to the neck exercises you have to perform daily so that your spinal cord doesn’t snap under the weight of your massive cerebrum (seriously, I’ve seen it happen), it’s easy to see why the term “Tormented Genius” was coined. On this newly-leaked EP cut, Booth newcomer TRUTHLiVE laments that his erudite bars are lost on the majority of listeners: “...they must not get it though, my brain works in rhymes / My trying to flow is like the sun trying to shine.” Needless to say, the brainiacs who make up the Booth readership should have no trouble appreciating the Bay Area native’s agile, densely-packed flows; the rest can simply nod along to Martin SLO‘s upbeat, funk-sampled production, which comes complete with authentic cuts. If you like what you’re hearing, you can find more intellectually-stimulating jams on TRUTH’s UnLearningEP, the official prelude to the 4/20 release of his Jake One-produced debut full-length, Patience.
