Some hip-hop artists treat the microphone (or turntables, or mixing boards) like a fashion accessory, and spend more time perfecting their outfits than honing their craft. Bop Alloy? To quote the chorus of the underground duo’s latest single, “We do it for real, Not 4 Show / And everything we do is from the soul.” Backed by Marcus D‘s lush sample work, rhymesayer Substantial invites heads who “want that real” to “come ride with us.” Steph, the Sapphic Songstress provides vocal support on the hook. Featuring Not 4 Show and much more, Bop Alloy’s Another Day in the Life Of… tape is available now for streaming and direct purchase via The DJBooth.
