It’s been two years since Virginia MC K-BETA dropped his excellent Inglorious Beta LP, a dynamic 16-song set of fierce rhymes and tough instrumentals. Since then, however, the rapper had been quiet on the music front.

BETA returns with “Pakistan,” a new single produced by InnerLoop label head J-Scrilla. Here, the rapper sounds comfortable amid restless funk percussion, his complex alliterations as sharp as ever: “I create tension thick enough to stick a fork through/Spit more, get more twisted than a corkscrew.”

BETA will drop a new project later this year; this song isn’t slated to be on it. DJBooth has the single.
