Walworth Road’s very own Jesse James Solomon has been gathering more and more fans over the last couple months with a range of releases and it was only a matter of them before he visited Charlie Sloth to bring his brand of chilled UK rap to Fire in the booth. Jesse’s relaxed, laid-back flow may not initially grab the ear of every rap fan, but once you take time to listen, you will release just how talented this artist is. He has managed to do something that many artists struggle to do and that is to find a sound that is unique to him, which has earned him attention, not just UK, but in the States too. He has featured on mixtapes by the likes of Wiki (of Ratking) and Remy Banks, two upcoming rappers in the US hip hop scene, and he only seems to improving.
This fire in the booth sees the young rapper talking two instrumentals, with the first seeing him paint a dim picture of the ends he grew up in and talk about his love-hate relationship with the area. The second is a bit livelier but still paints a dull, dark snippet of Jesse’s lifestyle and surroundings. Clocking in at just over 4 minutes this short fire in the booth is definitely worth watching and Jesse James Solomon is definitely an artist to look out for.
