NEW HEAT FOR YOUR PLAYLIST

“A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie – Mood Swings [Official Video]”

The Bronx-bred rapper Artist Dubose, better known as A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, first hit the rap scene with the breakout hit “Still Think About You” which was featured on his 2016 debut mixtape, ARTIST. The mixtape also introduced fans to “My Shit” which went on to become RIAA certified double-platinum and was also listed as one of “The Best Songs of 2016” on Apple Music. A Boogie quickly proved himself to be one of the game’s newest heavyweights after XXL dubbed him as “one of the hottest and newest up-and-comers in hip-hop” and included him in the 2017 Freshman Class. The young star also went on to release the 4x platinum “Drowning feat. Kodak Black” along with the 2x platinum certified “Jungle” and platinum certified “Timeless.” During the fall of 2017, A Boogie went on to release his highly anticipated, now gold certified, debut album, THE BIGGER ARTIST, which quickly sprung into the Top 5 on Billboard’s Top 200. He also became the top emerging acting in the U.S. as he simultaneously sprung to #1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart.

It is easy to see why The New York Times named A Boogie “the most promising young rapper the city has produced in some time.” A Boogie earned a BET Award Nomination for “Best New Artist” at the end of 2018 in addition to releasing his platinum-certified sophomore album, HOODIE SZN, which made its debut at #2 before spending three nonconsecutive weeks at #1 and maintaining a stunning 17-week streak within the top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The album also soared on streaming, garnering over 83 million streams the week it went #1. Following his latest album, A Boogie embarked on his “A Boogie Vs. Artist” tour which wrapped with 26 of its 30 dates sold out in addition to releasing his two latest singles, “Mood Swings” and “Reply (feat. Lil Uzi Vert),” at the end of 2019. With these new songs slated to appear on his forthcoming third studio album, Artist 2.0, there’s no doubt A Boogie will continue to make waves and redefine the sound of New York rap.
