Known for his production work and collaborating with Beyonce, Vic Mensa, and Kelea, Boots is a singer and songwriter who tends to stay in the shadows. He is credited with producing and writing three of Beyonce’s songs from her self-titled album including “Blue.” Today, Boots is stepping out of the shadows as he drops a 4-track EP called #DarkDaze in celebration of his 31st birthday and he is celebrating not by receiving gifts but giving them out instead.
