EDITORS’ NOTES

In September 2016, Artist Dubose was being feted as the man who could reinvigorate New York hip-hop. “It’s a lot of pressure,” he told the New York Times. Unbowed, he’d deliver this sure-footed full debut just 12 months later. With a voice that blends melody and muscle, he considers the highs and lows of fame on simmering opener “No Promises,” and responds to being pulled over for having tinted windows with playful triumphalism on the spry, piano-infused “Say A’.” “Drowning” serves up enjoyably unabashed braggadocio, but the Bronx MC doesn’t shy from soul-baring—he’s just as compelling when he’s sighing over romantic complications on “Unhappy” and “Get to You.”

About A Boogie wit da Hoodie

An MC perfectly styled for the age of Future and Desiigner, Bronx rapper A Boogie wit da Hoodie hit the scene in 2016 with a funkier version of trap rap. Born Artist Dubose in Highbridge, the Bronx native spent some time in Florida before returning home and taking his music seriously. That was 2015; in early 2016 he uploaded his first tracks to the Net. In March, he dropped his debut mixtape, Artist, while April saw him drop "Bag on Me" featuring Don Q. With a Meek Mill and DJ Khaled co-sign soon after, and the Highbridge the Label mixtape released in May, the Atlantic label signed a deal with Highbridge and issued the singles "Bando" and "My S**t" in July. EP TBA followed in October. At the start of 2017 Boogie was featured in XXL's Freshman Class Of feature. Later the same year, he released his debut full-length, The Bigger Artist, which was packed with guests, including appearances from Trey Songz, Chris Brown, Kodak Black, and Robin Thicke. ~ David Jeffries
