Recruiting some of the best talents from Massachusetts onto a singular project is BoriRock - the boisterous, yet esoteric rapper who hails from Boston's Dorchester neighborhood. Dropping his third project of the year, Bori transitions from his 2020 album Fishscale wondrously, captivating fans of Massachusetts music in the process. Today, he's featured across Mass Music Radio's airwaves with a brand new release titled D1: FREAKAZOID SUMMER.
Featuring Top Hooter, Cassh Cartel, B Blazo, Reem Skully, OGM Ricky, Caev, Shaykh Hanif, and Dun Dealy, D1: FREAKAZOID SUMMER is an amazing starting point for outsiders of Boston music. All of these artists are currently bubbling within the city, helping to establish an entirely new identity for the area in the process. We constantly hone in on artists from the Bay State here at Mass Music Radio, so one can only imagine the excitement that surrounded us upon this project's release.
Sitting at 14 tracks in total, BoriRock certainly did not slack with respect to giving his fans new music to listen to. Arguable the hardest working rapper in the Greater Boston area at this moment in time, BoriRock is showing no signs of slowing down his work ethic. Though he faced some legal troubles in 2020, he's determined to bounce back – utilizing his discography as a means to leave the street life behind him, and ascend to greater heights. Much of this release circulates around exactly this – the constant seeking of progress within an environment that doesn't contain much opportunity. Though he utilizes a humorous tone at times, the mission that Bori is on is one that defies many of the systemic pressures that are placed upon him. Not only does his music sound great, but the meaning behind his lyrics is something that helps make its impact substantial.
