Black Lotus: Boslen drops the “PRESS” lyric video in support of new project
Vancouver-based Boslen first hit the scene in 2018 with his debut EP, Motionless, and since than has quickly becoming one of the most promising rap artists to come out of Canada’s West Coast.
Had it not been for two ACL injuries, the Chilliwack-born rapper might still be focusing on his career as a Team Canada rugby player. Instead, Boslen decided to take on the music game, and he’s already seeing quite a bit of early success.
His latest project, Black Lotus, certainly sets the stage for his growth on an even larger scale in 2020. If you aren’t already familiar with Boslen, the first few tracks on Black Lotus should pique your interest enough to keep listening. You might also recognize him from the critically acclaimed TRAPLINE album by Snotty Nose Rez Kids which dropped back in May.
“Boslen has been consistent with new releases including ‘Hidden Nights’ produced by 808 Mafia, the ‘Eye for an Eye’ remix, featuring Vancouver duo MANILA GREY, and most recently ‘LIGHTSPEED,’ produced by Nxsty, all leading up to his EP Black Lotus showcasing his anticipated sonic growth.”
Earlier today, Boslen released the lyric video for a huge record off Black Lotus called “PRESS.” The video was created by Kit Weyman, Natasha Dion, Ali Khurshid, and Scottie Watson.
The 7-track Black Lotus features appearances by NXSTY, Kelland, and Nani Beats. You can find it now on various digital streaming platforms including Apple Music and Spotify via Chaos Club Digital / Opposition.
We recently added “PRESS” and another big record off the project, “Lightspeed,” to our Spotify playlist, Canadian Fresh.
