Maryland made and Silver Spring bred, Bou is a rapper on the rise. His highly anticipated mixtape “Educated Crook” dropped on Oct. 27 and things have been looking up.
The 19-track mixtape, produced by J. Harris with bonus tracks produced by Young Clip and James P, includes “new production, new features and new style.” Some of the mixtape's features include Lightshow, Petros, Rush Dem, Filipé Dro and other local artists.
“I want people to get a better insight on me, personally and where I’m from and the situations I’m going through and I want them to see exactly how passionate I am about music,” Bou said.
“Educated Crook” is a musical story of the 24-year-old's past pains, present blessings and future dreams. It gives insight to Bou’s double life, a mix of the Rosemary Hills streets and the Bowie University classroom.
Solely focused on the music, Bou believes that he’s “one of those artists that like to be involved with the whole process, with the production, with recording, with sampling, all that so I want people to get a better insight on how involved I am in the music.”
With more than 3,000 plays and 15,000 views on Spinrilla, “Educated Crook” is a solid project you want a part of your iTunes library. Click here to listen and download, and check out the full track list below.
