Meeting widespread demand from fans everywhere, rising critically acclaimed San Antonio, TX rapperÂ MikeÂ DimesÂ presents his anxiously awaited new album,Â Texas Boy.
To coincide with the albumâ€™s release, Mike also drops the highly anticipated single and video for â€œARSENALâ€ featuringÂ Denzel Curry.Â The visual is the perfect kickoff to the album and new era for Mike Dimes. When asked about the growth since the project Mike saysÂ â€œIm more confident, mature and vulnerable this album, less monotone and more animated. Wide range of emotions and stories, youâ€™ll go out knowing more about me than when you came in.â€Â
Mike will be also performing at officialÂ Texas BoyÂ Release Party at Paper Tiger in San Antonio.
The 14-track body of work affirms his place at the forefront of hip-hopâ€™s next generation. Fueled by airtight rapping, quotable punchlines, and woozy hooks, the album illuminates his inimitable presence. Early on,Â â€œWHISKEY N WEEDâ€Â intoxicates with its soulful throwback choir sample asÂ MikeÂ takes stock of the journey thus far. He practically grins,Â â€œThey counting me out, shout out to momma and poppa, I made a â€˜ Mâ€™ in their house. I donâ€™t think they can get to me now.â€Â Then, thereâ€™sÂ â€œARSENALâ€Â [feat.Â Denzel Curry]. Horns resound in the background as a thick bass line booms under breathy verses. He warns,Â â€œI ainâ€™t talking for free,â€Â and laments,Â â€œI just spilt my cup all on my kicks.â€Â Elsewhere,Â â€œGREENâ€Â [feat.Â Wiz KhalifaÂ &Â Hoodlum] puffs out hazy bars as an instantly arresting smokerâ€™s anthem.Â â€œHATCHBACKâ€Â [feat.Â Joey Bada$$] boasts verbal fireworks in the midst of a thumping bass line and ominous synths.
Texas BoyÂ isÂ Mike DimesÂ at his rawest and realest.
