Hailing from Atlanta, GA, Boi Blue was entrenched in music from a young age, raised in the south where the music, food, and culture are rich and full of soul. Growing up around the church, music was an inherent part of his life, but it wasn't until he began listening to classic, influential rappers such as Biggie, Tupac, and many others, that his passion for rap took flight.
Boi Blue has grown and developed his own, soulful style; a musical illustrator, painting on a canvas of silence with colorful, rich words. It's safe to say the budding star has mastered the art of storytelling that has made classic rappers the icons that they are.
Fresh off the release of his six-track EP 'Say Less,' Boi Blue exemplifies a sultry opus of dim Contemporary R&B vibes that heighten our sense in a major way. As we zone in on the second track heard on this body of work, we're greeted with "Girls Want War," a brilliant display of time and spatial components in the artistic route of songwriting.
Boi Blue's vocals jump out of the speakers as we're immersed in various styles of the striking timbres he releases in a passion-fueled performance. The reverberated universe that has us in a simmering stew containing only the energetic vigor that Boi Blue personifies is unparalleled. The way that the narrative pours from his soul-laced exhibition of talents is remarkable.
We're truly hanging on to the edge of his seat as we hear the musical influences that he allows to speak into his musical creations, all while creating his route with a melismatic panache. Serving us this delicacy on a silver platter, Boi Blue varies in his imaginative tendencies as he is the tour guide of our emotions through "Girls Want War."
With a slow tempo foundation of bass-heavy components that remain the sturdy groundwork for his angelic crooning to lay upon, we have to admit that Boi Blue is a one-of-a-kind talent. Wearing many hats that all suit his self-assured swagger, we're ready to dive into the rest of "Say Less."
Thank you for joining us at BuzzMusic, Boi Blue, we absolutely love the vibes that you emit in “Girls Want War.” What was the moment that brought you the inspiration for this particular single?
Hey, thank you for having me! Yes, thank you! I enjoyed creating this song, I actually wrote and recorded a similar song a few years ago but it was never released unfortunately so my producer and I wanted to create another version but with a more melodic feel. The song was inspired by true events Atlanta nightlife, boy meets girl, love at first sight kind of thing. I just wanted to paint a portrait of that whole experience just with words of course. Does this song mean the same thing to you that you would like your listeners to take away from it in terms of thoughts and emotions?
Yes, I really tried to go in-depth with the lyrics to create a feeling that the listeners could vibe to, even though it’s a short story the feeling is memorable. What is the entire concept of “Say Less,” based on? How long did it take you to create this body of work?
Say Less is a statement used to express an understanding. I use it for motivation when it’s time for me to get something done, especially when it’s album time. It took me 5 months to complete this project because I wanted to create a specific sound, I spent most of my time picking out beats, also mixing the tracks in the way I wanted them, I’m always searching for the right sound.
How have you found yourself growing in your musical journey as an artist from the first release of yours to now?
Yes most definitely! I’ve grown so much musically, that’s the whole meaning of this project today. I wanted the true fans that have been with me on this journey to feel this way as well. In 2011 I started as a great rapper, today in 2021 I’m a great artist who studied and mastered his craft, and Lord willing I hope that it grows even bigger than what it is today.
What's next for you?
I plan to keep growing as an artist and an entrepreneur. I just started a record label and I’m looking for more inspiring people like myself to help build a positive and solid foundation.
