Boston-based hip-hop artist Billy Dean Thomas performs live at GBH for Front Row Boston's first-ever socially-distanced session. 2020 breakout artist Anjimile joins on guitar.

Thomas grew up in Harlem and moved to Boston in 2016. In 2018, they released the EP Rocky Balboa with the hit single "Tina Turnup." Since then, Thomas has made great strides in the city through performances, collaborations, and several Boston Music Awards nominations. For Better or Worse, Thomas' new EP challenges the music industry with polyrhythmic flows that cover intersectional feminism and social justice and is due out on October 30.

This performance was recorded on September 29, 2020.
