Almost two weeks back, Boogie shared his great tape The Reach, giving us twelve new tracks of dope West Coast music. Today, he shares a mini-documentary on his neighborhood, his family and his new project.

Boogie Spits An Exclusive Freestyle
Boogie's had a relatively quick rise in the rap game, undoubtedly thanks to the fact that he sounds like he's been doing this for years.

However, consider this the formal introduction, where you'll find out everything you need to know about Boogie from the man himself.
Boogie On Sway In The Morning

Boogie "Bitter Raps" Video
Boogie is a West Coast rapper whom we introduced you to with his debut mixtape Thirst 48. Before that came out though, we just had this song "Bitter Raps" to go off of, and it alone peaked our interest in the rapper.
