New rules, fuck the rules. At least that’s the stance Brooklyn-based rapper/actor Stro is taking on his new mixtape ‘B.E.S.T B.Y F.A.R,’ out today for stream exclusively on.
While the 19-year-old rap prodigy gears up for the release of his next commercial release, he gives something free for the fans. “You can’t just drop a project and expect people to buy it. I decided to let this tape go for free as a thank you to my day 1’s. My supporters grow more and more every day, and I owe them something.” Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
On ‘B.E.S.T B.Y F.A.R,’ an acronym for “Being an Emcee Sounds Tight But You Fuck All the Rules,” Stro takes a laissez faire approach using different instrumentals and concepts he felt moved by. No rules, just good music. Experiencing a significant level of celebrity at a young age, Stro is no stranger to the entertainment business. However, getting an early start does not make navigating the industry easier.
“I started rapping very young. There were rules, but not as heavy as they are now. I love hip-hop, but the politics of this game will make you want to quit. I’m not going to do that, so I put all that energy into creating this tape.”
