Rittz – Questions 2012

Producer: QDIII

Album: Unreleased

Label: Slumerican

As described in the Strange Music boss’ recent video announcement, Tech N9ne‘s recent decision to sign Booth fave Rittz was motivated as much by his personal respect for the ATL rhymesayer’s mic skills as it was by his business savvy. Likewise, Rittz had long been a fan of Tech’s dating back to the first time he heard the Kansas City underground mainstay on Gang Related soundtrack inclusion Questions (Rough Draft). Thus, it could hardly be more appropriate that the White Jesus rapper celebrates the beginning of their working relationship with a reimagining of the aforementioned joint. Making its world premiere right here in the Booth, Questions 2012 finds the emcee lacing QDIII‘s original boardwork with a quick verse describing some of his least favorite listener queries. While this dope homage is just a one-off release, those digging it can stay tuned for all the latest as the Booth fave settles into his new home.

Rittz – Walking on Air

February 21, 2012

As recently as November of 2011, Rittz sounded like he had the weight of the world on his shoulders. Just three months and change later, he’s “…feelin like [he’s] Walking on Air.” Leak numero deux off his forthcoming White Jesus re-release, this freshly-released cut finds the Slumerican signee (and freestyle alum) coming together with a fellow house fave to fill fans in on just how dope his 2012 is shaping up to be. Shane Eli reunites with the A-Town rhymesayer and once again the duo meshes impressively well; the Los Angeles rapper/beatsmith (also a freestyle alum) crafts an instrumental backdrop befitting a down-South street banger, layering electric guitar licks and synth flourishes over a whip-ready rhythm as Rittz flaunts his stacks and exterminates the competition in characteristically hi-octane verses: “Cockroaches, I got no choice, I gotta fumigate / Accumulatin’ dollars daily, how much money you done made?” Feeling this hard-hitting yet positive-minded selection? Then don’t miss White Jesus: .


Let’s be real. Rittz is slept on partially because there’s just too much music out there to stay up on everyone, and partially because he’s a white guy with huge red hair. And that’s alright, I understand. We all make assumptions based on appearance, myself included. But on the real, seriously, the man’s got one of the best flows in the game right now.

It wasn’t a popular pick, but “White Jesus” was one of my picks for 2010 mixtape of the year, his verse on “Let’s Ride” still gets regular rotation and now that he’s on tour with his mentor Yelawolf (check him out at the 1:12 mark of the “Hard White” video) hopefully it’s only a matter of time until people really start to listen to the man.

I know there’s a faction of RefinedHype Nation nodding their head in agreement, but if not his new freestyle “3 Shots” is as good a place to start as any. Over the instrumental for Lil Wayne’s “Two Shots”, a bonus track off “Carter IV” produced by Mad Decent, the first thing everyone’s going to note is Rittz’ flow, but dig a little deeper and you’ll find some real lyricism. Or at the very least some hilarious punchlines: “Every girl want my penis like I’m organ doning.” Well played sir, well played.

Rittz’ version is below Weezy’s original. Who did it better? For me it’s not even close.
