The past year has been filled with un-anticipated detonations of supreme talent from all over the continent. A Boogie wit da Hoodie is one of those young artists leading the charge. After dropping his debut mixtape Artist just last year, he capped of his illustrious rise by being named to XXL’s 2017 Freshman Class. Today he sits jovially, a beaming smile slathered across his face with a black bandana tied around his neck.
"Diddy reached out, Khaled reached out, a lot of people reached out. JAY Z was the only person who didn't reach out to sign me when everybody was looking to sign me,” he says, “I always dreamed of something like that, that was one of my goals, but after a while I had to wake up and realize I could become bigger than that. I could follow his footsteps and be as big as him, I could do it a whole different way and be as big as him.”
A Boogie is doing just that, currently days away from the release of his first debut studio album The Bigger Artist, he intends to make serious waves across the industry with his latest offering. Undoubtedly, the release of his next collection of works will open even more doors to continue his ever-expanding artistic endeavours.
Who knows who the young artist might link up for his next project, the opportunities are endless.
"I think me and PnB Rock got that type of chemistry, I think we can go back and forth at it and make a real dope album. I feel like me and Kodak Black would make a good tape or album together, that'll be a bodybag. Atlantic Records picked up the dopest artists.”
