When it comes to being an independent musician/artist, you enjoy collaborative efforts, but you quickly learn that the key to putting out songs/videos at a rate that works for you is taking over in all capacities. poolboi blu has had the beats and rhymes on lock for a minute, but 2019 is showing that he has a visual side as well. His first music video from ANTSY is the self-shot and edited jam that is lounge, and it features poolboi in elements that he is quite familiar with… home, Bad Ingredients Records, the Yellow Store, and even in the proximity of a pool. As much as I like working with poolboi on the video tip, if this is an indication of what he can do with no experience, I’m all for seeing what his visual eye develops into. Give this one a like and a share, and be sure to leave a comment as well.
Summer is coming to a close, and if there were a shortlist for summer MVP, it’d be safe to say that poolboi blu would be somewhere near the top of it. Be it solo singles, sincere mix volumes, or collaboration with Red Comet, the amount of work that the homie has put in these last few months cannot be denied. The Red Comet collaboration series continues with lounge, a track written and produced by poolboi blu with engineering and cover art assists from Red Comet. The track plays like a personal affirmation, with poolboi walking it like he’s talking it. My man has always been fire with the tracks, but what really stands out on this one is the confidence that you can hear growing in his lyrics and his delivery. It looks like poolboi blu the MC may slowly be stepping out of the shadows and into the spotlight… time will tell. I’ll definitely be around to watch that spotlight action go down when it happens, and the smart ones out there will be right there with me. Dig the track, share it around, and support your local creatives.
