Leakin’ It; Rap on Rep: Mahtie Bush’s New Release “BACKPACKRAMENTO”

Mahtie Bush
“BACKPACKRAMENTO”

By Annie Jay

The beat in “BACKPACRAMENTO” takes me back to the bus stop with my green Jansport, a transfer slip in my pocket, enough money to get home and of course my headphones.  Puff coat on in Downtown Berkeley trying to get to Oakland, tagging along memories of back in the day when I was 16-years-old, just listening and dreaming; a true hip-hop head.  A classic drum line sets the tone and Bush’s semi-Q-Tip-like voice plays well.   Bush should focus on developing his erythematic style yet when he wants to verbally sound hard he comes through.
