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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
