Boston has a wealth of talent on the rise—a group of young emcees poised to break through the glass ceiling once believed to have existed in Massachusetts’s capital—and one of the next in line is Kareem $ully.
The 21-year-old up-and-comer has been dropping freebies on Soundcloud here and there for the past year, but today, he touches down with the official video for his latest (and biggest in scope) single, “Talk My Shit.” A selection off his forthcoming debut mixtape, which is expected to arrive later this fall, the Humbeats-produced cut made its world premiere on Boston’s Jam’n 94.5 this past weekend and receives the visual treatment courtesy of SNDBVX. The bravado-laced track is an apt introduction to Kareem and the neighborhood he calls home, the black-and-white clip complementing the soft, sampled horns and confident, laid back flow that power the record.
This is an exciting glimpse of what’s to come out of Boston—and from Kareem specifically—in the near future. Watch above, and stay tuned for more.
