Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

Borelson - "As Far As Eye Can See" (Album)

Fast rising Toronto-based rapper and multidisciplinary artist Borelson releases his highly anticipated debut album As Far As Eye Can See . Comprised of 11 original tracks, the buzzworthy LP arrives as a hip hop-infused, Afro-diasporic, genre-bending collection of songs that reference rap, spoken word poetry, afrofusion, afrobeats, Latin, soul and R&B while showcasing Borelson's undeniable lyrical dexterity, versatile flows and vocal delivery. Certainly growing up in central Africa (Gabon, Congo) mixed in with years spent in France played some role in him being able to effortlessly concoct this unique sonic blend: Says Borelson: "I was able to build musical and artistic bridges through my journey - of living on three different continents - in order to unite people on feelings and vibes first. Boldness is one word I would use to decribe my debut, mixed in with a cinematic Afrofuturistic feel. In Gabon where I am originally from, we call the football team The Panthers, so the movie Black Panther was emblematic of the way I think and produce music and art. My journey also in some ways feels like something out of the film Coming To America. Perhaps As Far As I Can See is channeling a bit of T'challa (Chadwick Boseman) meets Prince Akeem (Eddie Murphy)!"

From a production standpoint, genuine fans of forward-thinking music will enjoy As Far As Eye Can See's remarkably varied audio palette that was cooked up by an all-star cast of Toronto-based producers, beat-makers and composers including Junia-T (Jessie Reyez, Little Simz), Nate Smith (Tobi, Faiza), Ric Notes/Mr. Ouici (Keys N Krates, Shad) and Truss (TRP.P)
