Video: Adam Tensta – Dope Boy

by Winston "Stone" Ford

People think I’m crazy when I tell people that the best hip-hop album of the year so far by a dude from Sweden, but people need to seriously stop sleeping on this dude.

“Dope Boy” is the (fourth?) single off of his album, Its a Tensta Thing, and isn’t a dope boy anthem at all. It actually goes against racial profiling in clubs, which as a black dude has happened to me more than once in my lifetime. For more info, check out my album preview on Tensta earlier this year.

    I think of it as one of the best albums of 2007 since that’s when it came out in Europe and that’s when all those great videos were coming out.

    That sounds like I’m trying to one-up or something but I’m not. I’m just a big fan seconding your motion.

    I guess most December releases end up on the next year’s lists anyway.

    I’ve just been surprised that more people haven’t picked up on him yet in the States.

    And I’m a geeky fan.

    I’ll shut up now.

    LOL…..yeah, when it comes to albums that aren’t out in the US, I tend to use the “new to me” philsophy….since I discovered it in 2008 I sort of think of it as a 2008 album.

    And yeah, I’m actually surprised that this album hasn’t gotten more play in the US Blogosphere. He’s got enough appeal for the hipsters and the hoods. I really don’t think that his management is making a strong play for the US (they never respond to my emails though they send me press releases) which is a shame because I think he will go over well here…it’s not like he’s rappin’ in Swedish.
