Boeken drops video for ‘Wolven’ exclusively on Chase
Antwerp-based rapper Boeken is mostly known for his work at StraatWaarde and as co-founder of S.G. Records. He’s also a devoted freestyle MC, who recently took second place at the Red Bull Beckvechten battle. In 2014 he started collaborating with NoMoBS and together with Salah, he made an EP called ‘Boeketoe’. Usually he raps over boom bap beats but Salah put him to the test and gave him a variety of beats, all in a different style. So now you got an old school style of rap on new school beats.
With the track ‘Wolven', Boeken tries to give us a look into the live of a drug dealer. "Nowadays the majority of MC’s are rapping about stacking paper and hustling all day while bragging about living the good life. In reality, the drug game is not as positive as most MC’s would like to show to you. As an ex drug dealer, I am trying to give my listeners a clear view on my experiences."
Together with Scarlenn, R’8 (NoMoBS) and Saïd (SLM), Boeken would like to present 'Wolven'. "Because we are not sheep who follow the herd, we are leaders of the pack!"
Enjoy the video.
