At the top of the decade, Boola blessed the blogosphere with Produced by Boola, an online series and compilation album that spawned reader-approved collabs with Ne-Yo (Shot Down) and Freeway (Take It From Me). Fast-forward four years or so, and the East Coast rapper/beatsmith is ready for round two. Back Block, the inaugural release in Produced by Boola Part 2, is a grimy banger co-starring three of B.K. most formidable street veterans. Featuring a syncopated rhythm section accompanied by relentless synth trills, the headliner’s ominous production sets the mood as East New York’s Uncle Murda trades verses with M.O.P. partners-in-rhyme Lil Fame and Billy Danze. After this dope appetizer, I’m sure you’re already fiending for more potent beats and fresh guest bars. Not to worry; we in the Booth will keep you supplied with series highlights in the weeks and months ahead. In the meantime, you can hear more from Boola on Booth-hosted 2012 mixtape Cut From a Different Cloth.
