To prepare for the September release of his sophomore album, Philanthropist, Twin Cities MC and DJBooth member Young Son has teamed up with Houston’s DJ Kool Los B to drop an appetizer mixtape, entitled Forever Words. Leading off the disc is a freestyle over Little Brother-member Big Pooh‘s Sincerely Yours (from the group’s critically-acclaimed album, The Minstrel Show), appropriately titled Proper Introduction. Over 9th Wonder‘s beat, Son once again discusses his issues with the modern hip-hop scene, claiming that today’s rappers are “chicken like the dollar menu.” In the end, the message is clear; it’s time for a change in hip-hop. Listeners who agree, and would like some refreshing music, can download the Forever Words mixtape, available online-only May 30.
