Hailing from the Westside of Compton, Boogie grew up in the same city that produced a who’s who of rap’s greatest superstars including Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, The Game and YG.
Boogie released a series of mixtapes that put the young MC on the map and captured the attention of Interscope Records which then brought interest from Eminem and Shady Records. His second mixtape, The Reach, released in 2015, led Pitchfork to call him “one of the best young rappers in the country” and the LA Times to comment that it features “the kind of vivid, full-fledged production usually reserved for a successful mainstream artist on his or her second or third major-label effort.”
“Boogie is everything I look for in an MC. Unique voice and point of view combined with crazy wordplay. This is a great fit and I’m excited for what’s to come.” says Eminem.
Boogie is currently working on his Shady Records debut. Meanwhile check one of his great tracks “Nigga Needs” below:
