Video: Boldy James, “Long Run/Optional”

February 20, 2012


Last week we premiered the lead single from Boldy James' new record, Consignment. This weekend, the rapper released the final from last year's Trapper's Alley, Pro's and Cons: The Quikcrete Mixtape. The video combines two tracks— "Long Run" is an impressive song produced by Chuck Inglish. But "Optional," with a discomforting beat from little-known producer Brains, stands out as one of the tape's most significant songs, thanks to some of Boldy's evocative lyrics: Left my gun at the crib, got my heart skippin/ It feel like one of my body parts missin.
