We all have that friend who, if they set down the bottle (or the blunt, or the Playstation controller), could easily parlay their natural talents into something great. Though the very fact that he’s featured in the Booth testifies to how much hustle he has in him, Wax has made a career out of playing “that guy.” On Outta My Mind, the latest Booth-exclusive world premiere in his Unplugged video series, the DMV-bred, Cali-residing rhymesayer, singer, instrumentalist and producer continues to document the constant tug-of-war going on in his psyche; while his dreams, his social life, and his relationships put up a good fight, they’re often no match for the combined forces of weed, liquor and laziness. This tragicomic, King David-produced banger is set for inclusion on a new, yet-unscheduled studio album—Wax’s first project since parting ways with Def Jam. In the meantime, keep tuning in every Monday for more exclusive entries in the artist’s DJBooth/Earmilk-presented series.
