It’s safe to assume that Wordsmith doesn’t play a whole lot of tennis – otherwise, he might have titled his newest mixtape record Game Set Match rather than Game Set Point. Whether this was a deliberate choice or a simple oversight is irrelevant, however, as the record has pretty much nothing to do with the sport; trading a clay court for a horn-heavy beat by Street Level, it instead focuses on the verbal volleys fired back and forth between the Baltimore emcee and up-and-coming collaborators Skyzoo, Unlearn, RAtheMC, and Donny Goines. With this level of talent on a single record, one can only expect good things, and Game Set Point doesn’t disappoint – each emcee brings his or her A game, and the end result is a consistently compelling collaborative cut. Listeners hungry for more from Wordsmith can check out his HipHopdx Presents the 2008 Resolution & Re-Cap Mixtape when it drops on New Year’s Eve, and fans should also stay tuned for his contribution to the DJBooth Exclusive Freestyle Series.
