2020 was a rough year for everybody involved, but it did have some positives. One of those positives is the sheer amount of new music we were blessed with this year. Helping to pass the time while we’re all (supposed to be) locked up in the house, artists this year have dropped at a rapid rate, with many new artists finding their way into more ears. One of those guys is Atlanta rapper, BOREGARD., who built a nice buzz in 2019 behind the back of his single, “Beyonce Knows.” Returning to double down on that, he unleashes his enjoyable new album, Trustfall2.
At 8-songs, Trustfall2 is an engaging 20-minute listen that has great replay value. Featuring production from Saint Nick, ShySlash and more, the album finds BOREGARD. expressing an array of emotions, with fear being the catalyst. Not just any fear, though, but fear of success. The album follows a clear theme of BOREGARD. speaking about loving the journey of ascension, though he’s afraid of what awaits him when he gets there. Calling on features from Jelani Imani, DavidTheTragic, Tom The Mailman and BBY KODIE, he also showcases his ability to standout amongst other notable names. On songs like, “Without Me,” and “Gluttony,” he shines within situations set up for the guests, while he doubles down on his solo tracks. Utilizing his signature eclectic charm, he displays it proudly on, “Vintage Garments,” the best song on this project, and perhaps in his discography.
Take a listen to the project below and get to know BOREGARD., a definite artist to watch in 2021.
