PREMIERE: Caleborate “4 Willem”
"I don't believe everything they say..."
Caleb Parker aka Caleborate is a rap artist from South Sacramento, who dropped his Real Person project this past October. Today MASS APPEAL premieres the music video for a single from that project called “4 Willem.” Shot during a trip to New York City, the low-key video captures the contemplative vibe of the track and Caleb’s Rhythm Assisted Poetry to perfection.
“The ‘Willem’ in the track title refers to the song’s producer,” says Caleb. “I’ve never met him in person, even though we’ve been making music since 2012. We met through Facebook when he sent me a random message. I dedicated the song to him because we didn’t work on my 1993 project. So I when I heard this beat, I knew I wanted to put it on the album and I dedicated it to him.”
On the song’s second verse, Caleborate reflects on the loss of a loved one. “It’s about my boy Darian, a childhood friend I grew up playing basketball with,” the artist explains. “He was murdered last year at a party in Sacramento. When he passed away, it was a wake-up call—It made me appreciate the people in my life more.” Check the vibes up top.
