During this timeless era, this decade gave birth to many of the genre’s legends such as Biggie, Jay-Z, Nas, and Tupac. Fast-forward its 20 years later and a similar vibe is in the air. For the first time in a long time, typical gangster or drug dealer rap’s aren’t on the forefront; lyricism is. With newbies like Jay Electronica, Wiz Khalifa, and Curren$y breathing life back into the art form, under the reign of Hip-Hop’s current king Kanye West, it seems like wordplay is here to stay. New York’s own Boogz Boogetz is one of the leaders in this newly re-emerging sub-genre, which is quickly multiplying and bringing lost categories back to our music.

 

Born in what is considered to be the boondocks, Boogz Boogetz arrived on the scene in the late 80′s in Far Rockaway, Queens. Raised by his mom, Boogz attended school in Queens and then Brooklyn after, relocating there with his family. Like a spoiled brat, becoming a rapper at the early age of 14 only added to his growing popularity. By 17, he knew that this was going to be his career.

 

Soon after taking his career seriously, Boogetz started to work with his older brother and longtime protégé of Mobb Deep’s Prodigy, Un Pacino. Once Boogz music began to circulate on the underground, he became friends with music video director Jordan Tower. Tower knew that Boogz would inevitably get discovered, so he took him on national and international shoots, and began to document Boogetz career on film by creating a slew of music videos and webisodes. This experience not only changed Boogz life; it expanded his fan base to a broader market. Since then, Boogz has had over 4 million views on his videos, and performed in Canada with artists like Juelz Santana.  He made classics with Wiz Khalifa and started his label YRS Music Group with his partner Al Prince.

 

Boogz, who describes his sound as epic, stoner, soulful music, listens to artists such as Jay-Z, Kanye, Lil Wayne, Nas, Common, and OutKast to fuel his creativity and motivation. “Great music inspires me to make great music! When I hear a great song, I feel, I can make a way better song.” His mixtape “Far Rockaway’s Most Wanted” is heating up the internet and the streets. Moreover, hosted by DJ Khaled, DJ Ill Will and DJ Rockstar Boogetz, he is well on his way towards acquiring the ever so coveted and illusive major record deal. On the heels of hit songs “Cool,” produced by Lil Boi Boogetz, lets his fans know that it is ok to be yourself. “Go In,” featuring Ace Hood and Kid Ink and produced by Black the Beast (Diggy Simmons), is a great commercial, hood record that everyone can relate to. “Favorite Show,” featuring Wiz Khalifa and produced by G14, has a chill, laid back vibe. “High Life,” produced by Rocky, which describes Boogz lifestyle and the odds of success, are stacked in his favor.

 

Boogz Boogetz has a bright future on the dawn of a new renaissance and evolution in our Hip-Hop culture. He has his eyes set on working with Jay-Z, and Kanye West, touring the world and bringing home some platinum plaques to his record label. With all reachable goals and tasks for someone who views themselves as “one of the most humble and versatile artists out there”

 

When this type of grind, creativity, positive outlook, and abundance of talent all meet in perfect timing, a star is born.

Q&A

 

When did you realize you wanted to become a music artist?

 

Around the age of 12, I started free-style battling in school, and I was killing everybody, so I wanted to do it professionally.

 

Where do you get your inspiration?

 

Everything, from hearing these wack rapper’s albums, my kids (two boys), my family, my friends and my supporters; they all inspires me.

 

What are some of your accomplishments as a music artist?

 

Man, I do a lot. I got a video on rotation on MTV right now, with Tre DaTruth, one of the first artists to make that “stoner” sound, along with Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y. We all started that new “stoner” wave of the new millennium that everybody in the young youth trying to do now.

 

What makes your music different from any other music artist coming up right now?

 

I am very versatile; you gone hear much different stuff from me. Especially now. I got a whole r&b album coming out. I got my rap album coming out. Me and Prodigy got a collabo album coming out. My solo album coming out, as well as, a solo mixtape with LRG Clothing.  I am about to put out my clothing line also.

 

What’s the best thing about being an independent music artist?

 

Just expressing myself and letting the people know how I am feeling in my career, whether it is happy or sad. I am just here to give you the real me.

 

Where do you see yourself five years from now?

 

I see myself in LA Hollywood Beverly hills chilling nice crib with a lot of different business ventures, I see myself successful, a young entrepreneur.

 

What advice would you give any upcoming music artist?

 

Just keep grinding if this is what you want to do. Sometimes you got to look in the mirror and ask yourself, Is this you? A lot of people just want to be a rapper because that is the new thing to do, but if this is really you and this is your dream, then I think you should go for it. Don’t let anybody tell you anything. That is what I did. I came from doing rapping on the block to shows in France and headlining.
