Boldy James Releases “Do It” Ahead Of House Of Blues Mixtape

Boldy James is back after a two-year break from hip-hop with “Do It” from his forthcoming House Of Blues mixtape. James has changed his style by using trap beats instead of his previous boom-bap sound heard on The Art Of Rock Climbing as he explains, “On the new tape, I’m trying a new sound, bringing in some elements of trap music–trying to bridge the gap for people who are biased against that kind of music. House Of Blues comes out February 27th and James gave the reason for the title and release date:

 “I named the project House of Blues for a couple reasons. My first show with Nas was in Chicago at The House Of Blues, so it was a monumental moment in my rap career, but it also refers to a particular period in my life in Detroit. Me & my big brother Blue, we used to sell blue pills out of a blue house on a street called Blue Hill, with a blue-nose pitbull. In so many words, everything was blue.I’m releasing the project on 2/27 because 2-2-7 is a number of significance to me, the ConCreatures, and a bunch of other groups from my area of Detroit, like Double Dee & The Game Time Mafia, Redi-Rock & The Bully Boys, the list goes on. 2-2-7 is my bread and butter and I hold it near and dear to my heart.”
