Single: Booka600 – “War Scars”
The Only The Family Signee Gives a Melodic Snapshot of Street Life in His Latest Loosie
With a skill for melody that rivals his mentor Lil Durk, Chicago’s Booka600 is the city’s next one to blow. Rhythmically singing atop mellow keyboard and piercing guitars, Booka shares “War Scars,” his latest single. Throughout the song, Booka dwells on his past, reflecting on the good and bad. He thanks his mom for spending her extra cash on Jordans and reminisces about shooting his BB gun in his backyard, but he still carries the scars from the more troubling aspects of his past. Premiered by Dirty-Glove Bastard, “War Scars” follows “Baguette Bandz,” Booka’s Phil Collins-sampling standout from the compilation mixtape Lil Durk Presents: Only The Family Involved Vol. 2.
Boasting a roster packed with up-and-coming Chicago rappers such as OTF Ikey and King Von, whose breakout single “Crazy Story” earned over 22 million views on YouTube, Only The Family and Lil Durk are poised to dominate Summer 2019. Sharing a lyrical realism and skill with melody that endears them to their mentor Durk, the Only The Family vultures spread their wings on Only The Family Involved Vol. 2—OTF Ikey flashes his trap-happy hooks, King Von flashes a charismatic menace, Booka600 stretches his emotional muscles, and Doodie Lo snaps with carefully worded threats. Featuring guest appearances from Tee Grizzley and Sada Baby, Only The Family Involved Vol. 2 is available for stream and purchase via EMPIRE.
Stay tuned for Booka600’s upcoming project Word To LA. Dedicated to Booka’s close friend L.A., who recently passed away, Word To LA is slated to release in Spring 2019.
