DaBoii – “Actual Boii”
SOB x RBE falling aside was a bummer. From 2016 to 2018, the Vallejo, California group went on an unbelievable run of singles and mixtapes, merging the traditional kinetic Bay Space bounce with a Doughboyz Cashout-like chemistry. Although they’ve all gone on to do good issues individually, Can’t Tame Us, the newest solo tape from DaBoii proves he was all the time the crew’s engine. Because the days when DaBoii sparked “Calvin Cambridge” with “Bitch I’m DaBoii, who the fuck is you nigga?” he’s had a knack for energetic takeoffs, and the opener “Actual Boii” may have you hooked from the opening line: “First off it’s SOB up on this bitch/Give a fuck who up in there as a result of nigga we up on this bitch.” From there, he rides a easy piano-driven beat with propulsive drums and background noise that softly vibrates like wind chimes. The remainder of the tape is filled with memorable moments, heavy on visitor spots from different Cali rappers. That SOB x RBE period is longgone, however DaBoii remains to be thriving anyway.
With artists releasing songs at a quick and livid tempo, it’s troublesome for the common hip-hop head to maintain monitor of all of it—regardless of how tapped in they’re. That’s why we created The Ones, a every day publish to focus on the music you want to hear.
