“Actual Proof obviously have similar feelings about the figurative and literal power of radio waves to shape a life. The collection of sounds they’ve put together for their new album, Black Boy Radio, serve as the soundtrack to the life of a young boy growing up in Raleigh, North Carolina, a concept that gives an already deeply layered album an additional layer of complexity. Though their styles are distinct, like Mayday’s recently released album, Black Boy is part of a growing hip-hop movement dedicated to swimming against the current and making long-lasting music at a time when we measure life in minutes, not years. There’s still classically-oriented music being made, you just have to look outside your radio dial to find it.”
