Booda French: Fortune Cookies

Another tight single from Booda French, as he keeps the pace going after his last release at the start of the month. For Fortune Cookies, the Ipswich MC has roped in Jaisu for production duties, leading to a soul-tinged but drum heavy number, with Booda delivering solid bar after solid bar.

Astronauts is produced by Yanaku and pre-orders for the album are available here. 6am Coffee Club is out on EatGood Records on 2 May.

Awesome is Everyday is out now on Soulspazm Records. If you didn’t catch it, I interviewed Booda a couple of days ago, which you can read here.
