First Quarter Best Mixtapes Of 2012 #23: Boldy James – Consignment: Favor For A Favor

Boldy is a Detroit rapper whose biggest look to date is probably his appearance on the Cool Kids’ When Fish Ride Bicycles album; Consignment even includes a song about how happy he is to be down with the Cool Kids. But that affiliation turns out to be pretty misleading with regards to what sort of music Consignment actually includes. This is heavy, bleak, joyless gangsta music, the kind that owes a ton to darkly literary New York holdouts like Cormega and Mobb Deep. (Boldy’s voice even sounds exactly like Prodigy’s from time to time.)
