With a lofty co-sign from Statik Selektah, and a guest verse that made waves alongside Chris Webby on the producer/DJ's 2011 album Population Control at the young age of 15, the kid from Ann Arbor, Michigan, then known as Gameboi, had more to show for his rap career than many of his veteran colleagues of his home region. Flash forward about four years, and the young emcee has amassed notable collaborations with Rapper Big Pooh, Jon Connor, Clear Soul Forces, among many others, and now declares the start of a new chapter of his career with his brand new project, "High Art."
Produced entirely by frequent TBO collaborator Arjun Singh, "High Art" is the world's introduction to the artist Isaac Castor (fka Gameboi) and is available today to stream and download in its entirety for free via Soundcloud.
Guest features include Boldy James (on the acclaimed single "Arizona"), Static the MC (Jaz-O's son), Antwaun Stanley, and more.
This album, to me, is all about coming in to my own as an artist. Over a 23 month span, I felt very jaded and was going through a creative dry spell of sorts. Next thing I know, I connected with the incredible producer Arjun Singh and the creative spark I was longing for had returned. We created an album that is very wide spread in terms of different styles and sounds, and despite drawing a good chunk influence from the direction that rap music is trending in 2015, it is one that I believe will stand the test of time. - Isaac Castor
