Caleborate has made his debut at the DopeHouse over the last couple weeks with “Options” – featuring Pell and Sylvan LaCue — and “Made Me.” While the latter didn’t make the cut, the former lands on his new album 1993 — a project excavating his own past for therapeutic and forward-thinking purposes.
“I put aside a lot of insecurities and did my best to grow as a person through this work of art,” the Berkeley rapper said on his SoundCloud. He went on to discuss the loose storyline the project follows.
“This project is meant to play out in order, it follows a loose storyline that includes actual (unscripted) dialogue that depicts the current state of things for many of us twenty-something’s in the Bay Area (and in the world really). Although the title of this project may seem a bit exclusive to certain generations, it is meant to be felt by everyone who has been, currently is, or will be a twenty-something.”
