Fine Tuned is a live performance series that pairs artists with a live instrumentalist for an intimate rendition of their biggest hits.
Melodic, emotive, tragic, and born from the unforgiving streets of Chicago, it’s no surprise that “Envy Me” has exploded in the rap landscape of 2019. Launching 19-year-old Calumet City rapper Calboy into the spotlight, the single has raked in millions of streams, charted in the top 40 of Billboard’s Hot 100, and positioned the artist on the frontlines of a rising wave of melodic street rap refocusing national attention on the city of Chicago.
For episode five of Audiomack’s Fine Tuned series, Calboy puts on a stirring showcase of the emotion powering his breakout single. Performing “Envy Me” backed by pianist Matt Composure, Calboy loses himself in the track, vocals strained and eyes barely opened.
