Boldy James & The Alchemist Sneak In One More Release Before The Year Is Over With ‘Super Tecmo Bo’

Less than a minute to go, game on the line and Bo Jackson proceeds to just run circles around everybody for the win. Boldy James and The Alchemist have delivered their best NES Bo Jackson impression by sneaking in one final heater of an album in 2021 with the just-released Super Tecmo Bo. Earlier in 2021 the pair dropped one of Uproxx’s Best hip-hop Albums of the year in Bo Jackson. Our Aaron Williams ran those very same Bo-Jackson-like circles in describing it when he said: “Boldy stacks syllables like Jenga blocks, building precariously teetering constructs of assonant vowel sounds to the point you wonder how the whole thing supports its weight.”

Super Tecmo Bo picks up where its predecessor lets off and it’s streaming everywhere now. Listen to it here, check out the tracklist and NES cartridge-inspired album artwork below. Also check out Boldy James & The Alchemist’s Tour dates with Earl Sweatshirt and Action Bronson below.
