The Boy Blesst - Lockdown Vol. 1 (Reign Music Inc./Styx Music)
I'd mostly only heard The Boy Blesst on Achitects' Street Radio mixtapes before and liked those tracks, and posted one, "Talk Radio." So I was definitely happy to hear from the man himself a couple months ago and have him send me his mixtape. He raps in kind of a conversational style but can really really flow, and he just kills the "Grammy Family" beat and a lot of other tracks on here. Actually, his voice reminds me of Diablo just a little bit. Blesst's official album Show-N-Prove is supposed to drop this Spring.
The Boy Blesst - "My Resolution" (mp3)
This song is just crazy, best beat on the mixtape, and I feel like he's really speaking some truth here about the whole Baltimore scene, "I popped up around the time Comp got signed/ Backland dropped rhymes, and NEK started the shine/ and the underground was little to none/ and airplay was a monopoly, all we got is Radio One."
