Who needs a shrink when you’ve got a mic, a recording booth and an avid audience of hip-hop heads? On his first solo feature, making its world premiere on our front page, Curtessy undergoes a session of Muzik Therapy, escaping from the stresses of the daily grind to dissect his emotions over a chopped-soul beat by project collaborator The Militia. First in Flight State mainstay Chaundon and Elmira, N.Y. veteran Rome Clientel assist on the mic, exorcising their anxieties and even working through a few poignant memories in their introspective guest verses. Muzik Therapy is the lead single off forthcoming EP Look What the Streets Made, dropping via The DJBooth on Tuesday, May 14.
