Editors’ Notes In the midst of Georgia hip-hop trio Travis Porter’s relentless mixtape run of the 2010s, one could be forgiven for having missed out on member Quez’s extracurriculars, especially with the pseudonym switch to Black Boe. A side joint with elite trap producer Sonny Digital, 2017’s boldly titled Black Goat was one of the year’s hidden gems, and three years later its sequel shines even brighter. With a high-quality array of gleaming beats at his disposal, Black Boe unspools a versatile series of flows, particularly on the booming “A Million” and “Work.” The project peaks with “Psychedelic Earthquake,” a next-level fusion of pop, funk, soul, and rap that shows just how far this duo can go.
