With the combination of his Detroit swagger and casual lyrical stylings, budding DJBooth favorite Boldy James is truly One Of One. Thus, it should come as no surprise that the buzzing emcee chose a braggadocios title for his new single. On One Of One Boldy kicks off the record by boldly (pun intended) stating that, “There’s only one of me. It’s a million of them, but there’s only one of me.” This motto continues throughout the song as Boldy drops bars on wannabe’s, coming up in the game, and a variety of other very personal topics. Rounding out the record is the intoxicatingly, grimy production courtesy of Chicago duo Blended Babies. One Of One is currently not attached to any forthcoming project or album, but that could change at any moment.
