On his last feature, a non-album loosie, Webbz stressed the importance of maintaining faith in one’s own abilities—after all, if you don’t Believe in yourself, who else will? In times of trouble, however, internal conviction isn’t always enough. That’s when the Panhandle State representative puts his hands together and looks to God for guidance. On Holding on to a Prayer, the inaugural song release off his forthcoming, DJBooth-hosted street album, the artist asks the Man Upstairs for strength to weather his current struggles, peace of mind for his mother, and enough money to stay on the straight and narrow. Joining the headliner over Numonics‘s poignant beat, sampled from Stephen Bishop’s Never Letting Go, Booth fave J. NICS lends his flow to the penultimate verse. The Pursuit of Happiness is scheduled to hit the Booth for free streaming and download on Wednesday, September 11. In the meantime, of course, you can keep it locked for all the latest tunes.
