Chicago rapper Calboy releases the compelling track and video “Miseducation” featuring Lil Wayne via Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records. Shot in New York and Miami, the Shomi Patwary-directed (Tyga, Vic Mensa, GoldLink, Diplo) video premiered on BET Jams and BET Hip Hop.
Written from the third person’s perspective, “Miseducation” describes the gun violence in the inner cities. In just the last year, Calboy has lost six close friends to gun violence, including KJ Balla. The title of the track comes from the 2020 XXL Freshman inductee’s admiration for Lauryn Hill’s album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill and further, the miseducation he experienced growing up with street politics and street justice as a way to resolve conflict.
This past year Calboy released his project Long Live The Kings – the name honoring and paying tribute to his fallen friends. Including the deluxe version, the projects features heavy hitters like Lil Baby, King Von, Polo G, Yo Gotti, Fivio Foreign, G Herbo and Lil Tjay. Currently, Calboy has garnered over 1.65 billion streams worldwide across all platforms, with both versions of Long Live The Kings combined having over 183 million of those streams alone.
Stay tuned for more music from Calboy coming soon.
