20-year-old Bronx rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie (née Artist Dubose) cracks the Top 10 of our Emerging Artists chart this week, moving #11-8, after debuting on June 30th.
A lot has happened since A Boogie released his Artist: The Mixtape a mere 7 months ago. His tracks My Shit, Jungle, and Friend Zone received lots of attention online from blogs, streaming hip-hop fans looking for new jams, and influential New York radio stations like Hot 97.
At the beginning of August, the rookie got some Summer Sixteen tour stage time between Roy Wood$, dvsn, and headliner Drake at Madison Square Garden. Just this week he is featured in the New York Times Music section. His latest song, Not a Regular Person, is heating up while My Shit is getting some spins at Urban radio nationally.
East coast live dates are on the slate, including a couple supporting Schoolboy Q. Recently the independent he has been signed to, Highbridge the Label, inked up a joint venture with Atlantic records, signaling that only big things can be in store.
