A rhyming technician with a humble charisma and a clever conversational flow, Caleborate is turning heads from coast to coast. With 308k monthly listeners on Spotify and 362k streams in less than a month on his last single, “Soul,” Caleborate is building ample momentum for Real Person, his upcoming project. “Bankrobber,” the latest single from the project, is an electric track that details both Caleborate’s troubled past and inspiring journey to the top. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
Prior to “Banrobber” and “Soul,” Caleborate shared the loose, exuberant “Make Me & Take Me,” recently added to Spotify’s Most Necessary playlist, which was accompanied by a self-directed, one-take video. Featuring production from Ian McKee, Lege Kale, Chonchies, Drew Banga, and Willem Ardui, Real Person arrives on October 6th via TBKTR.
“The ‘Bankrobber’ thing is mainly talking about my pops and how he never really worked for nobody,” Caleborate explains. “He worked for himself. He always started his own business, owning his own place. He made people pay him. He was damn near robbing banks.”
Spinning clever wordplay into compelling underdog narratives, Berkeley, California’s Caleborate is effortlessly relatable. With Real Person, the young rapper speaks on his current moment- confronting his relationships, the current presidential administration, and his struggle breaking through to the mainstream despite his superlative talent. With a renewed spirituality and rebooted relationship with his father, Caleborate is back with confident tracks and insights for any 20-something going through the motions. The follow-up to 2016’s autobiographical 1993, which Earmilk called “the album for your 20s,” Real Person is the next chapter in Caleborate’s narrative.
