Serious Klein style of rap is electric—his Summer ’03 Problems project stayed in heavy rotation following its release back in 2016. Since then, the occasional singles have kept listeners interested and engaged in Klein’s trajectory. Ahead of his new project expected to drop this summer, Seri is back with new music. Teaming again with preferred producer Rascal, Klein drops off “Boy Boy,” a calling card and quintessential track from the German born rapper.
Klein’s multi-lingual, multi-national background gave him an incredibly broad exposure to musical styles; in various interviews he has highlighted artists ranging from 2Pac to Luther Vandross as stylistic influences. Cosigned by Mick Jenkins, Denzel Curry, and The Underachievers, Seri’s eclectic and variable approaches have made each new release better than the last.
“Boy Boy” is a warning shot to everyone. Klein’s first verse catches listeners up with where he’s been, “burning down the scene, muma I been burning down stacks, Dubai with the team,” and builds into the hook, referring to himself with his favorite moniker: Seri the King. He doesn’t mince words, spazzing on the hook before launching into his second verse, a terse warning to “fugazi ass rappers” and their “counterfriends.”
“Boy Boy” is an typically sharp, direct Serious Klein track. Catchy, hard-hitting, and indefatigable, it’s hopefully a sign of things to come from the overseas rapper. Stream “Boy Boy” on Spotify below.
