Pittsburgh's Boaz is making a lot of progress towards establishing himself as one of the city's finest rap talents. His brand of street rap straight from the jungles of the Steel City has hit a prominent note amongst his fans and critics alike. Signed to one of the best independent labels around, Rostrum Records, it appears that Boaz is set to see his career snowball even further, and this week we've been given more proof, if we ever needed it.
Following on from the video for "Do It All Over", Boaz has released a brand new joint, featuring the legendary Scarface, entitled "Hard To Forget It". With deep 808 kicks driving the beat through, Boaz spits about his life on the streets and the people he's seen go to jail, with his words meant to be more of a warning for anyone thinking of committing to a 'gangsta' lifestyle. Houston native Scarface drops an equally deep verse, with his signature tones riding the beat so effortlessly alongside Boaz. Not only does "Hard To Forget It" hammer home the point that Boaz isn't playing around when it comes to this rap stuff, but it also shows the Pittsburgh native's ability to sit on a beat alongside a legendary figure such as Scarface, and not look out of place. A lyric from Boaz's previous track "Do It All Over" stated "In the rap game I'm nobody, in the streets a big deal", well, with this track he's just released, that line might need to be rewritten, as Boaz is on the right path to become the 'Burgh's new rap hero.
You can stream "Hard To Forget It" below, and the track is available to download for FREE over on Boaz's Soundcloud.
