But, A Boogie explains his reasoning, “Me, Hov, that’s two out the window. Shout out to Cardi B, I would have to say when it comes to me just being a Bronx representative.” Moreover, he throws 50 in at four saying, "Shout out to 50 Cent. I don’t know why I didn’t say him second. I had to say my name second. 50, that’s the big bro for sure.”
