With a young and hungry roster of Chicago-born emcees, Lil Durk‘s OTF label signees have made their intentions clear – they’re coming to take over the game. This is true for South Side native Booka600, who possesses melodic instincts and emotional range unmatched by any other newcomer. Chronicling his evolving relationship with his hometown of Chicago, Booka shares Home•Less EP, his latest project. Spanning five tracks with rippling production from TouchOfTrent and others, Home•Less is buoyed by Booka’s skillful ability to conjure emotional storytelling with his plaintive auto-tuned melodies.
Along with the EP, Booka shares the heartfelt video for “I Rap”. Directed by Armando Esteves, “I Rap” lays out Booka’s daily routine – he wakes up, sparks up, boils a pot on the stove, and immediately heads to his home studio setup to start recording. In the video, Booka has a beautiful assistant to help him cook as he lays down the track – she also plays a mean violin.
Though the Only The Family signee moved to Atlanta to pursue his craft, the South Side will forever be his home, even as it evolves into something that Booka doesn’t recognize. Gain a deeper understanding of one of the most promising signees of the OTF label by peeping his one-of-a-kind EP and impressive visual.
