Update: The Jeff Santos-directed and edited visuals for Wizdom’s My City’s Filthy single have been added.
When I moved from Minneapolis to Brooklyn in late 2012, one thing that took a little getting used to was the general level of griminess; even in upscale neighborhoods, it’s not uncommon to see garbage swirling around in the street. While I doubt Seattle can compete with B.K. on that count, it certainly holds its own where aural dirt is concerned. On new single My City’s Filthy, a Booth-exclusive world premiere, Wizdom gets together with a couple talented neighbors to show listeners just how gritty his hometown can get. Over D-Sane‘s larger-than-life synth boardwork, the unsigned spitter trades brash, braggadocious verses with Grynch and Dyme Def‘s Fearce Vill. The chorus borrows a snippet from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis‘s own Seattle anthem, The Town. Wizdom’s forthcoming full-length, The Next Step, is slated to drop April 22. Those feeling this single, however, can cop it right now via Bandcamp.
