A first look at Boonk and one might hold the preconception that he’s an eccentric and wild young man, which he really is. Though beneath the maze of tattoos that are found across his exterior is an intelligent artist currently on the rise. Much like his heroes growing up: Boonk prides himself on being real with people, saying what he wants to say and acting the way he wants to act.
"Growing up I listened to a lot of Slim Shady, when I watched his videos, I just felt his demeanor, he meant everything he said. I could just see that realness in his eyes, and he sounded good too. I listened to a lot of Eminem.”
Like Eminem, Boonk has also had his fair share of trials which are the most important form of growth. It’s how one learns from these experiences that defines how far they can go. "The high felt good, but I was losing track of my motherf*cking life, drugs are not where it's at,” he says. “I have way more fun being sober than being on drugs, I see that now. I don't wanna smoke, I don't want no xans, no percs, no molly, no coke, no nothing!”
