GONZO

GONZO is the EP follow-up to Boslen’s 2021 debut album, DUSK to DAWN, but even in this leaner format, the Vancouver rap visionary goes gloriously over the top. Taking equal inspiration from Cudi and Dali, Boslen is a natural-born shape-shifter who treats every track as an occasion for radical reinvention. Whereas “LEVELS” and “HEIST” see him reconnecting with the self-aggrandizing, gladiator-duel bombast of his debut, he redirects the tough trap beats of “FALLEN STAR” toward a dreamy meditation on the symbiotic relationship between success and self-doubt, while the Latin-flavored seduction of “FIESTA” is answered by the brokenhearted emo-rap ballad “GONE.” “I can never be controlled,” Boslen shouts on the aforementioned “LEVELS”—and Gonzo is a full-tilt, genre-mashing offensive directed at anyone who dares to try.
