Genre-defying artist Boslen has seen major success, with his music amassing over a million streams across platforms. With the level of talent present in the young rapper, you would think hip-hop had been a big part of his life growing up. It wasn’t until he was 12 that he discovered his love for music through Kid Cudi- “I was trying to protect my mental health as a 12-year-old kid,” he recalls. “I put in my headphones and listened to ‘Up, Up and Away,’ over and over and over again.” He eventually started writing his own music shortly after he arrived at the University of Victoria and back-to-back ACL tears sabotaged his rugby scholarship and plans for a future in sports. Boslen emerged as an artist in 2018, when he released the Motionless and Motionless II mixtapes. The now Capitol Records signee has dropped his first project since being signed- DUSK to DAWN. The album, with features from Tyla Yaweh, Vory, Dro Kenji, Rascalz, and Charmaine, chronicles Boslen’s growth while still paying respect to the pain and hardship experienced in his life.
