If you are a film buff, you surely know of the famous scene in Spartacus in which the title character’s brethren protect him by each belting out the famous line, “I am Spartacus.” While it might have worked for him, the same strategy wouldn’t be effective for this Booth newcomer; after listening to this cut, it’s clear that Tyrone Briggs is one of a kind. Briggs displays gladiator-like strength on the mic, employing a raw, relentless flow that, while definitely heavy-handed, is also lighting-quick. His delivery sounds all the more powerful over Sean Nathaniel’s symphonic production. Although it is centered around a fluid string arrangement, the beat still packs a serious punch. Spartacus is the latest song release off Briggs’ #ScatteredThoughts EP, due out in October.
