Bio

CHKABLOAWWW! BoyCott Blues is an up and coming MC, presenting a versatile perspective for hip hop. His name is influenced by the peaceful protests of the American busing system and segregated diners in the 1960s. He states " The act of boycotting a product that is harmful to you or your community is the most mindful way to protest or rebel against it. We as individuals can choose to stop enabling organizations that practice hatred or discrimination simply by controling our minds, money and bodies. Boycotting starts with an individual act but when done within a group, is very powerful and effective. It is that thematic idea that structures my music. The creation of my music is an individual act. My music reflects the actions and perspectives of the people as a group and is a mindful way to protest the influences that negatively affect our communities."

BoyCott Blues , born and raised in Roxbury, MA with a Trinidadian-American upbringing, is a product of the "golden era" of hip hop. He is greatly influenced by the old school culture his older siblings lived. Blues started writing and spitting rhymes at the age of six. He and his older brother helped to form a local rap group in the early 1990s. Throughout his adolescence, he continued to develop his craft through various live perfromances in the Northeast. He has evolved into a polished and diverse MC.

“Irony,” the highly anticipated first album is executive produced by Insight. Insight is an internationally recognized hip hop artist, based out of Germany. The song "Irony" is a musical reflection of an urban adolescence experience. It highlights the success of the trials and tribulations that many adolescent males encounter in low income urban areas.

The lead single “CHKABLOAWWW,” commands the attention of the listener; a certified classic that pays homage to the lyrical styles or old school hip hop. It illustrates BoyCott’s distinct delivery reminiscent of some of the most skilled MC’s. Boycott Blues illustrates his ability to showcase his wittiness in a lyrical blueprint about self and communal preservation with “Da Math” featuring Consequence.

BoyCott Blues believes that “we are breathing every breath of change. We gotta pay attention to how we are being treated and how we are treating ourselves. Unity is the power of the people that will create the impact of change - I am playing my role as an artist and social commentator that is a part of that push”. With tracks “A will and A way” produced by Insight, and "Blue Brothers" produced by New York based producer, Cinematic, Blues examplifies his ability empathize with the everyday struggle . His music reflects the internal struggles of both the mentally and financially oppressed.

The album “Irony” is a joint venture by Brick Records, Sunmoon Records, and On Thin Ice Records. Blues describes his debut as, "one that targets multiple generations and provides more answers than questions with an emphasis on worldwide state of affairs .”

Before the album drops, BoyCott Blues hits the streets first dropping a mixtape titled “R.I.P. City,” presented by Karmaloop, Sun Moon, and On Thin Ice Records, and hosted by "Mr. Get Familiar" himself, Clinton Sparks. “R.I.P. City” is an instant classic - a fierce compilation mixed by Clinton Sparks & DJ Nes Quick that contains fresh freestyles and original material previewing the debut album. BoyCott Blues speaks on “R.I.P. City” – Our community has become very segregated. The division has resulted in an extensive amount of premature and avoidable deaths. We have become a community of mourning, traumatized individuals and we need the support of each other to continue a healing process.

The future for BoyCott Blues is infinite. An artist who is driven to craft good music that builds an inner voice and connects with the listeners, BoyCott concludes that, “Hip hop has many meanings, many feelings, many colors, and many shades of daily living where life changes constantly and often times drastically. " Similar to the color, Blues is a spectrum of shades and hues. His music explores the many emotions and persepctives that defines what it is to be human.
