City Boy (Exclusive, Explicit, Single)
by J. Holiday
Released: Oct 2007
Label: Capitol Records
On this outtake from Back of My Lac, J. Holiday is the "son of a preacher" and "can't stand no haters" as he hangs with Memphis rap pioneers 8Ball and MJG, drives a Cadillac and "does city things." The production's bluesy soul, replete with a chipmunk gospel choir, and Holiday's loose, swaggering vocal phrasing recall Anthony Hamilton.
