While the media remains second-guessing what’s next for Left Boy in hip-hop, the latter has long since moved on and is now waving from the opposite bank: Left Boy has decided to leave the game. Sure, it’s not like we ever suspected him of being that radio-friendly next-door pop star, but something inside him has changed. Rap is no longer his first voice, no longer the first thing that comes to mind, when he’s making music. He feels he’s outgrown the possibilities that genre offered him to say what he had to say and get things off his chest. Which is why he needed a change, a second skin, a reincarnation. Welcome Ferdinand.
Ferdinand is not just some lame new alter ego of Left Boy, which in turn is an alter ego of Ferdinand. Left Boy is Ferdinand, is Left Boy, is Ferdinand. It’s time to remove the mask. And we get to know Ferdinand, the mastermind, the craftsman, the tinkerer and the thinker. Ferdinand is about to take us on a journey of his world and show us how Ferdinand became the one we still believe to be Left Boy. Sounds complicated? How nice we have the universal language of music to lead the way!
