New Music: Boaz ‘Real Name, No Gimmicks (Vol. 1)’


Mikey Fresh / August 7, 2014

Breaking into the hip-hop game is tricky business. Nowadays MCs have to give out free music to get on. And, once they get on they have to continue banging out tracks for free to stay afloat. Pittsburg MC Boaz is no different. Yesterday (Aug. 6), The Rostrum Records rapper threw lighter fluid on his flame by releasing the first installment– Real Name, No Gimmicks– of his forthcoming series of free EPs.

The five-track project features street creditable guest such as Scarface, Sean Price, Crooked I and Chevy Woods. And production by !llmind, Sap, Boom, Taliban Ju, David Boom Pinks and Jayze. Boaz’ debut LP is slated to be released this Fall. Until then, you can stream Real Name, No Gimmicks here.
