Homer’s Odyssey, Alice’s Wonderland, Dorothy’s Oz, Harold & Kumar’s White Castle; each of these famous plots all share a common theme: the character’s embarkment on a prolonged (and epic) voyage. While these fictional protagonists manage to find what they were looking for, Pol B’s search for enlightenment in the music industry has just begun with his Journey to Elegance. Backed by a strong and slowly developing beat from Kaliphat, B shares with listeners the events that test an artist’s true strength and perseverance in the business, along with what his talent can bring to the table (“Put me in a box/ my wrapping makes it a gift/ when I’m delivering sh*t colder than Christmases”). While the Journey to Elegance may prove to be the shortest distance between two points for the Atlanta musician, his new mixtape, the Clocked Out Vol. 1 Mixtape, out now, gives us something to reminisce about during his grind to the top. As always, keep it locked to the Booth for more.
