EDITORS’ NOTES

BlocBoy JB walks in the footsteps of Memphis rap giants like Three 6 Mafia, 8Ball & MJG, and Yo Gotti. And much to his credit, he doesn’t sound like any of them. The drawl is familiar, but his flow is choppy and excitable, exemplified on songs like the turbulent “Shoot” (replete with a BlocBoy dance that took over pep rallies across the United States) and “Mamacita,” on which he gleefully tramples a minimalist 808 gong. “Look Alive,” the Drake collaboration that helped catapult his star, is here too, as is another edition of his infamous “No Chorus” showcases (“Pt. 11”).

About BlocBoy JB

American rapper BlocBoy JB emerged in 2017 with a pair of viral hits that highlighted his speedy rhymes and big bass production from longtime producer Tay Keith. Born James Baker in Memphis, Tennessee, JB grew up in a large, single-parent household and would sneak his brother's equipment away to record his own music. The self-taught producer and dancer released his first song, "Goons Coming," when he was just a teenager. In 2017, he issued "No Chorus, Pt. 6" and "Shoot," the latter of which took off and caught the ears of high-profile rappers like Drake. Produced by Keith, the track was featured on his mixtape Who Am I 3, and was recorded in the rapper's closet. As his online audience grew, he issued additional mixtapes like The Purple M&M and Simi. In early 2018, he scored a major co-sign when Drake joined him on the track "Look Alive," which amassed millions of streams within a month of its release. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
