After scoring a top 10 single with his Drake-assisted hit “Look Alive,” BlocBoy JB unleashes his new mixtape, Simi.
The 18-song project boasts a star-studded guest list. Outside of the Drizzy collab, BlocBoy taps 21 Savage (“Rover 2.0”), Lil Pump (“Nun of Dat”), Moneybagg Yo (“Asian Bitch”), and YG (“Nike Swoosh”).
In February, BlocBoy spoke about the project’s significance during his first-ever interview with The FADER.
“It’s dedicated to one of my long-lost partners,” he said of the mixtape title. “That was one of the guys that basically told me to keep rapping out of everybody that was with me, when it was time to ride or slide on somebody, I used to be the first person. But he used to be like, ‘Nah, hell nah, keep rapping.’ He pulled me to the side and said, ‘You need to go on and keep rapping.’ He died on Mother’s Day, in front of his house.”
