The world is full of people who will LIE2YA with a smile on their face—some of whom may even come disguised as your closest friends. A 19-year-old rhymesayer who’s already well-acquainted with the sting of betrayal, New Orleans native Young Cam emphasizes the importance of staying on the lookout for snakes in the grass on his debut single and first DJBooth feature. Co-headlining the record, Sacramento underground beatsmith Lee Bannon backs his colleague’s wary bars with pensive keys and a tense, but understated percussion rhythm. LIE2YA isn’t part of a larger project but, if it’s whet your appetite for more, you can keep it locked to our front page for all the latest from both Cam and his reader-acclaimed production partner.
