W&V favorite Caleborate is carving his own lane on his road bike. Over the past year, the ambitious Berkeley-bred artist has risen as one of the leading talents of the Bay, spilling introspective verses we can all relate to. It’s been a tremendous pleasure to watch his progression from the days of #theusual, Winter Break, and breakout album Hella Good.
To jumpstart the fourth quarter, TBKTR has returned with 1993. The triumphant 14-track offering showcases a refinement of his sound and inimitable cadence, as well as an expansion of his vocal range. Caleb details his experiences and prospects for the future, shedding light on student loans, gentrification and his journey to success. With production from Mikos Da Gawd, Julia Lewis, and Cal-A, his down-to-earth rhymes leave no stone unturned as they float over a blend of soulful and synth-heavy soundscapes. Guest appearances from his blood brother Cash Campain, Pell, and Sylvan LaCue round out the project, culminating in another beautifully-crafted album from TBKTR.
