About Buck Bowen
Buck Bowen is not all about the hook or the perfect rhyme or being the best rapper alive. Well, he’s maybe a little bit about all of that. What rapper isn’t? But his style of hip-hop isn’t just about champagne, bling and cash. He’s a rapper with a conscience, and his new album, “Truth Before Comfort,” reflects that. His rhymes include critical thinking and a healthy amount of challenging people’s longtime beliefs. Take “God is What?” — a song that rolls through marriage, Christianity, Hinduism and the mysteries of God.
