Thought Booth favorite Young Scolla sounded confident on his last feature, the Lyriciss-assisted On My Way? Well, you ain’t heard nothing yet; on new single Built for It, the freestyle alumnus graduates from self-assured to downright messianic. Fortunately, the record itself seems to back up the artist’s larger-than-life rhetoric. Over the appropriately bombastic, guitar-accented boardwork of 808 Experiment crew SMKA, Scolla makes clear that failure’s not even a possibility, corroborating his claims with some fittingly lofty lyrical imagery: “With the big heart of David on a mission from God, trust me no Goliath will triumph, it’s the legend that I am / If you try and tell me different you simple n*ggas are lyin’.” Though the emcee’s victory is assured, he’s giving fans a chance to help things along by contributing a few bucks to the recording of his and SMKA’s forthcoming street album, the aptly-titled Young Scolla Meets SMKA. Fans can make a pledge toward his $4,000 goal (and check out the creative incentives Scolla’s offering for donation) at the project’s Kickstarter page!
