Judging by the overwhelmingly positive reviews garnered by previous features Return and Stakes Is High (Pt. 1), Booth regulars are well aware that Inglewood duo U-N-I are in the game for the pure love of hip-hop. If you need to be reminded just how passionate Y-O and Thurzday are about this “music sh*t,” look no further than My Life the first leaked cut off their forthcoming A Love Supreme LP. After Thurzday relates how his desire to inspire people drove him to choose hip-hop over other, possibly more lucrative career paths, Y-O kicks the positivity up a notch farther, stating that, though he’s damned near broke, the fact that he’s pursuing his dream means every day’s a beautiful one. Featuring a head-bobbing, lightly jazzy beat by Ro Blvd and a hummable falsetto hook, this cut is as listenable as it is lyrically life-affirming—what more could old-school heads ask for? A Love Supreme, U-N-I’s debut studio album, hits stores on the 31st.
