tabi Bonney - Nothing But A Hero

Posted 7 years ago
Producer:
Jon Redwine
Album:
Fresh

Though few of today’s urban musicians would be caught dead in tight spandex, the decision to forgo the security of workaday life in favor of chasing loftier dreams is, in a way, heroic—at the very least, it takes a level of courage that relatively few possess.  tabi Bonney is one of the many big dreamers to take that leap of faith, and, though he hasn’t achieved Superstar-level success just yet,  he knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that he’s headed for the top.  Recently leaked via the buzzmaking emcee’s Twitter, Nothing But A Hero finds Bonney flexing his nonchalant flow over an ambient, appropriately-spacey string-accented synthscape by Jon Redwine.  The rapper’s sky-high ambition comes through loud and clear here, but the overall effect of this cut is a little mystifying; those not distracted by Bonney’s catchy studio-enhanced stutter on the chorus might find themselves wondering who he’s addressing when he says “You are my superhero.”  The listener?  A love interest?  Himself?  If Fresh holds the answer, Booth readers will be the first to know—in his recent video interview, he promised to premiere the LP, due out in late August, as a free download at this very site.  For more fresh features from the DMV, check out Pretty Girls by D.C.‘s Wale and I’m So Lebron, I’m So Kobe, a Booth-exclusive premiere from Maryland femcee RAtheMC!
