Memphis rapper BlocBoy JB blew up in his city of Memphis with the single “Shoot” last year which he followed up with another hit single “Rover“. Recently rumors of a collaboration between BlocBoy JB and Drake have been going around for a minute now. Turns out the rumors were true. Drake and BlocBoy JB did have a joint record up their sleeves.
The rap upstart has been spotted with Drake a couple of times, at basketball games and then later in the city of Memphis. In one of the clips posted to BlocBoy’s Instagram, Drake was seen dancing to ‘Rover’ with BlocBoy, giving birth to the theory that the Toronto superstar will either jump on the remix (like he usually does) of the viral song or do a new one with the young spitter. Turned out to be the latter.
Today the two have linked up for BlocBoy’s new single “Look Alive“. Social media has been running crazy with this one so you’d have to wonder, can Drizzy help take the young rapper to the mainstream with his cosign as he’s proven to have done before in the past with other artist?
