Please help me welcome Bleary to the spotlight of Navarre’s Lounge once again! For those of you that follow me, you know that this isn’t the first time Bleary has graced us with his music. Bleary is an R&B/Soul artist that hails out of Portland, Oregon. He has been attracted to rap since his early days when the application of the flow, substance, and storytelling in the rap culture began to make sense to him. One of his biggest musical influences is Tupac for those reasons. Bleary takes what he grew up hearing and made those concepts work for his musical talents. The final product is something that is worth listening to.
Bleary has stepped out of his comfort zone and hit us with a track that is new to even his day 1 listener. “Fuck Journal” is a trap track that “is in response to paying for beats but never receiving them, which is why this beat is low-res…” Regardless of the track’s quality, Bleary is a hard hitter out the jump with the lyrics and the delivery of his message.
“Normally I would just say ‘whatever’ and move on, but I was freestyling one day, liked what came out, and figured it was an opportunity to make a point.”
Well Bleary, your point is clear. It’s a shame that it’s always someone trying to one-up or take advantage of, and it’s even more of a shame that a lot of those people are the ones that are the decision makers and money makers. Hats off to you for not backing down and saying what needed to be said!
