Boldy James Teams Up With Producer Futurewave for Collaborative LP ‘Mr. Ten08’

Boldy James has been on a roll, to say the least. After closing out 2020 and 2021 with a consecutive four new albums, the Detroit rapper released LPs in May and September of this year, Killing Nothing with Real Bad Man and Fair Exchange No Robbery with Nicholas Craven, respectively.

Today, James returns with his third album of 2022: Mr. Ten08. While the rapper has put out a few solo mixtapes, all of his past studio albums have been collaborations, and for this one, James tapped producer and beat maker Futurewave.

The 10-track Mr. Ten08 hears the rapper flex his gritty Detroit sound over swirling psychedelic beats. Futurewave, who produced the entire LP, leads with instrumentation over synthetic sounds, providing just enough of a backdrop to James’ bars without overpowering him.

A sole feature on the album comes from the emerging 2100 Bagz on “Dormin’s.” The guest artist matches James’ style of straightforward, albeit sometimes flat, delivery.

The rapper-producer duo truly shines at the tail end of Mr. Ten08, leaving their all on the project’s final tracks, “Jam Master J” and “Indivisible.”
