Capping off a busy 2020 which saw him release a project with Sterling Toles, a project with Alchemist and his debut project with Griselda, Boldy James has dropped his final 2020 project Real Bad Boldy.
This project, similar to its predecessors, is a collaborative effort with production team/clothing designers Real Bad Man. “With Real Bad Boldy, I’m talking about my life before music; before I caught this second wave that I got right now. Things that I am into, this art of hustling,” Boldy said. “I didn’t really make it in this industry as a youngin,’ I made it once I got a little older and I feel I am in my prime now. I had a life before music and that’s what I rap about. I’ve lived enough life to where it writes the music for me. I don’t have to recap, or reflect, back on it too hard because this is my real life. This isn’t me taking something I’ve seen, or been fascinated with and creating a fictional truth out of it, because I’ve seen it. I am not a “seen it” kind of guy. I am a “lived it type of guy, and this is what it sounds like when you’ve really lived it.”
A 10-song project, Real Bad Boldy features the likes of Meyhem Lauren, Stove God Cooks, Mooch, and Rigz. It is led by the singles “Little Vicious,” “Thousand Pills” with Stove God Cooks, and “On Ten.”
