Detroit rapper Royce 5’9” releases his highly anticipated first single, “Boblo Boat.” Featuring J. Cole, from his forthcoming solo album today.
On “Boblo Boat,” Royce warmly looks back at his childhood growing up in the D, a proud, blue collar city that has not always received the most positive of accolades. On the song, Royce transports listeners back to a time in the ‘80s when families could take a boat ride to Boblo Island and forget, for just a few hours, the stinging realities of life for black folks in Ronald Reagan’s greed-is-good America.
Royce’s new album, Book of Ryan, will be released on May 4th, but fans can pre-order the album here. The video for “Boblo Boat,” will be released on Monday, March 26th.
