Next week, the combustible Baton Rouge rapper Boosie BadAzz releases his absolutely furious new album Touch Down 2 Cause Hell, his first in years because of a prison term that interrupted his career for a long time. We’ve posted tracks like “Like A Man” and “Hands Up,” but “Mercy On My Soul” may be the clearest indicator yet that this album’s release is a reason to be thankful. On the track, Boosie and Jeezy, another Southern rap king who recently tweaked his rap name, spew angrily and defiantly about hard-life struggles over screaming guitars and wailing choirs. It’s a stirring piece of work, and you can hear it below.
