While first Wiz Khalifa, and later, Mac Miller ascended to international stardom, Rostrum Records’ Boaz patiently waited. The quiet MC spoke loud on his records, showing another side of Pittsburgh than where Taylors walk, or where Most Dope lurks.

On “Mathematics,” from Real Name, No Gimmicks (September 4), Bo’ makes arguably his strongest showing to date. With a scratch-chorus not entirely unlike the one DJ Premier once made for Mos Def on the same song title, Boaz talks some reality in his raps, from the G-code to mourning recently lost homeboys.

If this is the pedigree Heads can expect from the Scarface collaborator, Rostrum may have another hometown star on their hands.
