IN THE CUT EP. 62 | 🍦Boslen🍦

As a teenager, Boslen’s goals were focused on sports: he attended the University of Victoria on a rugby scholarship and played on the Team Canada Rugby team. After he suffered back-to-back ACL tears that sabotaged his scholarship and plans for a future in sports, Boslen dropped out of school, moved to Vancouver, and began writing music as an emotional outlet. After independently dropping mixtapes and an EP between 2018 and 2019, Boslen garnered millions of streams and international attention.

On DUSK to DAWN, he finds his sound and flexes his vulnerability. Boslen, goes over some of the larger themes of the project and how he linked up with Rascalz. Together we decide our Top 5 KiD CuDi songs and he drops some special gems for Wednesday Wisdom.
