The King of the Concrete, Boldy James, is back with a new track, “One of One.” Released with the support of Red Bull Music, the jam acts as something of a tide-over until James’ anxiously awaited record with mega-producer, The Alchemist.
“One of One” features James’ standard smoked-out, soulful flow over a synthesized beat by producer, Blended Babies. The track features James’ usual lyrical content of selling drugs and the violence affiliated with the trade on the streets of Detroit, better known in his world as the “Drug Zone.”
You can get a preview of James’ upcoming work with The Alchemist by streaming the new record, Russian Roulette.
