Boaz Feat. Canino
To promote his upcoming project, Pittsburgh artist Boaz decides to come through today and share the project’s title track in the meantime called “Hope Dealer” featuring Canino.
Boaz Feat. Cook The Monster & Hard Tymez
In an HNHH premiere, Boaz drops off "Moonlight" feat. Cook tha Monster & Hard Tymez. The track will appear on The Burghprint, a Pittsburgh crew compilation mixtape that showcases the diverse rap styles coming out of the city. In "Moonlight," producer Jimmy Dukes sets the scene with a nighttime soundscape as Boaz and company rap about how certain things only happen after the sun goes down. Here is Boaz's artist statement:
E-40 is one of those rappers who will never stop releasing multiple albums a year, uncompromisingly staying within his own lane, but every once in a while, his blinders-on approach earns him a hit. "Choices" is one of those records, featuring a cameo-filled video, and inspiring freestyles from plenty of much-younger rappers.
Boaz Feat. Chevy Woods & Cook Tha Monster
A couple weeks ago Pittsburgh rapper Boaz teamed up with frequent collaborator Cook tha Monster on "Off The Rip (Freestyle)," the first release of upcoming tape The Burghprint. Today HNHH premieres the tape's second leak "100," in which Boaz and Cook link up with fellow Pittsburgher Chevy Woods over some ominous production courtesy of Jimmy Dukes.
Off The Rip (Freestyle)
Boaz Feat. Cook Tha Monster
Pittsburgh's Boaz is currently gearing up to release a new tape called The Burghprint, and today, he drops a new freestyle that'll appear on it. Him and Cook Tha Monster go in over French Montana, Chinx and N.O.R.E.'s "Off The Rip."
10 Bands (Freestyle)
Boaz Feat. Cook Tha Monster & Ghazi
It's now been eight days since Drake blessed us with If You're Reading This It's Too Late, and now the freestyles are rolling in. One of the first comes from Rostrum Records' Boaz, and we're excited to premiere his take on "10 Bands." It also features Cook Tha Monster & Ghazi. Taking on the Boi-1da and Sevn Thomas-produced beat, Boaz flips Drizzy's "I been at the crib with the phone off" into "I been at the trap with the phone on," proving that getting money is that the top of his "to do" list.
Boaz is a Pittsburgh rapper currently signed to Rostrum Records, an imprint that's also home to Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller. Boaz has collaborated with both Wiz and Mac in the past, as well as with Jadakiss and Schoolboy Q. Boaz is a gangsta rapper who's not afraid to look for inspiration in the streets around him. His faith in God and his undying positivity are what got him out of the streets--an essential part of his OG persona.
Message 2 My Trappers
Boaz has been letting go loose freestyles lately, after giving some space between his debut album Intuition. The Pittsburgh rapper made his return with a "Truffle Butter" freestyle the other week, and continues the freestyle streak today with "Message 2 My Trappers", over production from Fabolous. As the title indicates, Boaz has a few choice words for all the trappers and wannabe-trappers out there. You're doing it wrong.
Truffle Butter (Freestyle)
After going hard for the promo of his debut album on Rostrum Records, Intuition, and then successfully releasing the LP this past October, Boaz took a backseat from releasing music. The rapper had been busy giving us his Real Name, No Gimmicks mixtapes prior to Intuition, as well as plenty of leaks, so it's safe to say we had our Boaz fill.
Rapness Monster (Remix)
Boaz Feat. Asher Roth
With Larry Fisherman on the boards and Boaz on the mic, "Rapness Monster" was already a monster of a track. Now, Asher Roth has thrown himself in to the mix. Boaz shares this just a few days before his Rostrum Records debut, Intuition, hits shelves. Showing us that he means business on this remix, Boaz spins some new bars for us so we don't have to wait until Roth's verse to hear something new. When Asher arrives though, he comes in screaming like a lion and goes on to say that his bars are "sharper than a rhino nose." We can't argue.
Like This (East Coast Remix)
Boaz Feat. Termanology, ODDISEE & Vinny Radio
With his debut album, Intuition, dropping this Tuesday, Boaz has been sharing new tracks off it for weeks now to promote it, and tonight he’s delivering another one for the masses.
Boaz Feat. Mac Miller
Boaz began his big run this year with the Mac Miller-produced gem "Rapness Monster," and now they've linked up again for a track that will appear on Boaz's upcoming LP Intuition. Unlike the previous collab, "Don't Know" Larry Fisherman morphs into Mac Miller for a guest verse.
That Goodie Good
Boaz has been busy with the leaks lately, making sure that we're all were his debut album on Rostrum Records, Intuition, arrives on October 21st. The other week he hit us with a West Coast remix of "Like This" featuring Murs, Fashawn and Crooked I. Today he opts for a feel-good record off Intuition, "That Goodie Good." You know, the goodest (that's not a word) of the good.
Like This (Remix)
Boaz Feat. KXNG CROOKED, Murs & Fashawn
Boaz has been doing a lot lately. The Rostrum Records signee recently delivered two instalments in his Real Name, No Gimmicks mixtape series, (Volume 1 and Volume 2), and at the same time, he's been working on his debut album Intuition.
Rootin' 4 The Villain
Boaz Feat. Jadakiss & Styles P
On October 21, Boaz will release Intuition, his debut album on Rostrum Records. Today, he's shared the first track we've heard from it, "Rootin' 4 The Villain," which features a pair of heavy-hitting verses from Jadakiss and Styles P. Sampling a familiar drum break, "Rootin' 4 The Villain" opens with Boaz comparing himself to Robin Hood and saying that weed isn't bad for him. Jada follows, sounding every bit like the "villain" in the tile with his gravelly voice, and Styles P comes through bombastically, citing Scarface as a predecessor to his villainous ways.
It seems like Boaz just dropped the first Real Name, No Gimmicks mixtape yesterday (in actuality he dropped it on August 6th), but he's already got the second volume lined up and ready to go. Not to mention the fact that he's still planning his debut album for a fall release. Dude has been busy.
Like This (Remix)
Boaz Feat. KXNG CROOKED, Sean Price & Chevy Woods
Today Boaz dropped his Real Name, No Gimmicks Vol. 1 EP, his first official release as a Rostrum Records artist. In addition to nabbing guest verses from Scarface and TDE president Punch, he rounded up the trio of Crooked I, Sean Price and Chevy Woods for the EP-closing remix of his track "Like This."
Welcome 2 Steel City
We're two days away from the release of Boaz's new Real Name, No Gimmicks (Vol. 1) project. In prep for the release, the Pittsburgh emcee has decided to let loose yet another track from the tape. Titled "Welcome 2 Steel City," the song is a menacing ode to his hometown's struggles with violence and poverty. Signed to Pittsburgh's own Rostrum Records (home to Wiz Khalifa and formerly Mac Miller), Boaz may just be the independent label's next big thing.
Boaz Feat. Punch (TDE)
Boaz has a new mixtape series lined up for the tail end of summer. The first edition of Real Name, No Gimmicks is due out next week, and the rapper has released a new record from the project today. Teaming up with TDE's Punch (who's been on quite a tear recently), Boaz rhymes over a nice loop from Taliban Ju.
Only Thing That Matters
Devin Miles Feat. Boaz
It's been a slow day for today's songs list, but luckily Devin Miles comes through with some new ish today and it goes, featuring fellow Pittsburgh native and Rostrum Records' next up Boaz. "Only Thing That Matters" contains a choice Lana Del Rey sample (production comes from All Star), as Devin and Boaz rep their own. They both happen to be Pittsburgh natives, so it only makes sense. This is a taste of Devin Miles' upcoming project #Pixburgh, which is coming soon. If you vibe with this, you can enjoy a free download through Devin's Facebook page.
