Rollin' nerdy: Gonzaga rapper K-Rad drops new album

Posted By on Tue, Sep 30, 2014 at 3:32 PM

Kellen "K-Rad" Faker-Boyle, has been writing and performing his raps since his sophomore year at Gonzaga University two years ago, and since then has been working tirelessly to compile an album to showcase his passion for producing music. 

With primary themes of "perspective, self-doubt, love and being weird," according to Faker-Boyle, Nerd Eyes explores the coming-of age thoughts and stories of a self-aware college kid. Though it's somewhat introspective, the mood is mostly lighthearted and goofy.

His self-deprecating humor, especially in the title track, invites us to appreciate the uniqueness of a dorky guy in glasses who flaunts his talent in an industry that relies heavily on simply fitting an image. Faker-Boyle certainly is not apologizing for being himself. 

Nerd Eyes, a 15-track album with several outside collaborations, drops on September 30th and will available for download on K-Rad's Bandcamp page.
