Memphis star Blocboy JB has delivered his new project Simi, which features recent hits like “Look Alive” (with Drake) and “Rover 2.0” (with 21 Savage). Check it out below, along with a heartfelt explanation of his mixtape title via The FADER:
I have a mixtape, Simi, it’s dedicated to one of my long-lost partners. 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.
