City Slang: Boldy James is for the birds
Local rap star Boldy James has seen the video for his song “For the Birds” appear on Music Choice, MTV Jams, and mtvU, and the record is now on iTunes.
Apparently, “”For The Birds” is the first single from Boldy’s forthcoming 6 song EP “Grand Quarters” being released on Decon Records.”
“Boldy James, the blue-collar Detroit rapper who made noise last year with his Consignment, Favor For A Favor: The Redi-Rock Mixtape and high-profile collaborations with The Alchemist and The Cool Kids, announces his commercial debut with the Grand Quarters EP, due March 5th on Decon. The EP, a lead-in to an Alchemist-produced LP later this year, is titled after a once bustling and illustrious Detroit night spot that fell into disrepair, a beacon of blight who’s reference is employed as a reminder of neglected majesty and and the work ethic it takes to overcome at any cost. Perched above a crumbling city and documenting the ongoings, James personifies that ambition.”
