There’s no shortage of rappers dreaming of success, but only a select few with the talent and determination to actually get there. Fortunately up-and-coming emcee Wordsmith has everything it takes to climb the Ladder of Success, and as long as he’s on his way he’s bringing some friends along. Joining Wordsmith on his journey to the top are his frequent rhyme companions Kontact, Black Knight and Junclassic, along with perennial Booth favorites RAtheMC and Soulstice (DMV stand up), who all combine to give Ladder of Success a thoroughly celebratory feel. These many rappers on one track can be too much without a strong beat, but luckily producer Decadez has crafted a memorable sonic backdrop that’s catchy without overwhelming the lyrics (though the hook could have frankly used some work). For more help on climbing your way to the top, be sure to check out Wordsmith’s upcoming Overdue & Underrated mixtape, due out December 7.
