Boldy James isn’t slowing down. Why should he, with the sort of run he’s on? Dropping damn near flawless project after project, the Detroit MC has been more than enjoying his flowers, finally, after years in the game. Having first hit some heads’ radars with his Alchemist collaboration, My First Chemistry Set, nearly a decade ago, it was 2020’s The Price of Tea in China (another Alchemist-helmed project) that proved to be his true breakthrough.
Since then, collaborations have been his bread and butter, whether going experimental with Sterling Toles for Manger on McNichols, linking up with Griselda and Jay Versace for The Versace Tape, Real Bad Man for Real Bad Boldy, and then returning to work with The Alchemist for two stellar projects in 2021.
Now, he’s set to link back up with Real Bad Man for a new album, Killing Nothing. Given his consistent quality control, hype is already high, but the pair have teased the project with lead single, “All the Way Out”. Boasting an ominous, revolving instrumental, Boldy does just what he does best across the track.
Check it out below, or via your favorite provider, and look out for Killing Nothing come May 20th, with features from the likes of Stove God Cooks and Crimeapple.
Boldy James and Real Bad Man’s Killing Nothing is out on May 20.
