Last year, Los Angeles rapper Boogie dropped his first and only mixtape, Thirst 48. In retrospect, it was easily one of the most slept-on projects of 2014. (Our friends at Pigeons and Planes did try to put us on.) It’s no wonder it was overlooked though; the project didn’t feature a song like Dej Loaf’s “Try Me” or ILoveMakonnen’s “Tuesday”—viral sensations that were able to transform previously unknown rappers into leaders of the new school. However, it did showcase an artist with a refined, mellow sound and a refreshing outlook on life. But the 25-year-old rapper born Anthony Dixson need not worry, we get the feeling a lot of people are gonna wake up once they hear his Jahlil Beats produced banger, “Oh My.”The song’s video has been out since April and it’s managed to amass over 450,000 views on YouTube. Not bad, but not quite viral just yet. But with it’s instantly quotable hook and high-octane energy, it’s a surefire summer anthem (and we’re not the only ones who think so) and a song that could help break Boogie. And just in time too, he’s aiming for his next project, The Reach, to drop on June 24 (roughly a year after Thirst 48). He also claims he’s being courted by several labels but is tight-lipped about just who. So we expect you’ll be hearing a lot more about Boogie. So before the floodgates open, we got up with him to talk about how going to church got him into rapping, how he got shot in his foot, and why he’s critical of our thirsty generation obsessed with social media. Find out Who Is Boogie?
If your familiar with OG Maco then you need to meet the man behind the major moves, Steven Dingle aka Stevo, is somebody that should motivate you to want to be successful if you are in the music industry. OG Maco has been on my radar for a long time now and Stevo was the main reason I latched on, his blatant confidence in the young emcee is the reason these 2 are reaching the plateaus they do. But of course, none of this happens overnight, it takes plenty of hard work and determination. But more importantly you must have a dope product that you stand behind.
I came across a recent interview with Stevo as he sits down with Shelly Nicole of The Ill Table. Stevo goes into detail about his management style, working closely with OG Maco & how it feels to be apart of the successful end of the music grind. Check out the full interview above.
Exactly 1 week ago Chinx was gunned down and eventually led to his fatal (early) death. Investigations are still on-going at this moment and I will be sure to keep everyone posted if any new details arise.
3 days before his murder, Chinx made an appearance on DJ Kay Slay’s radio show alongside Zack (French Montana’s Brother). This would unfortunately be the last time Chinx would set foot in a studio or camera. Its actually sad to watch because Chinx was really catching his stride and all the hard work he had been previously putting in, was coming to fruition. SMH, RIP Chinx.
