The last we heard from Detroit fast riser and DJBooth Freestyle alum Young Scolla we were left wondering what was good enough to make the final cut of his upcoming album Tears & Triumph if the Booth approved Stare wasn’t. Well, today I’m excited to say we still don’t know the answer! Ok, so maybe that’s not so exciting, but luckily Scolla’s new record, Apart, which also didn’t make the final cut, is. Produced by TEP Tracks and Rodney Hazard (also known as one-half of The Marvelous World of Color), Apart finds Scolla getting Drake-ish, both dropping some impeccable rhymes about a relationship strained by distance – “The Cinderella tale, I thought you knew the story / I hope I ain’t jeopardize it in pursuit of glory” – and contributing some impressively smooth vocals on the hook. Damn, I didn’t know he was a dual threat like that. We know Scolla can make dope records, so if this isn’t good enough, how dope can we expect Tears & Triumphs, dropping right here on DJBooth “soon,” to be? You’ll just have to keep it locked to find out.
