A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie Denies His New Jersey Show Was Canceled Due to Death Threats
A show A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie was supposed to be performing at on Saturday night (Sept. 1) has been canceled due to threats of violence reportedly made against the Bronx rapper. Now the platinum artist is denying those claims.
According to NBC New York, Boogie, PnB Rock, Funkmaster Flex and more were slated to perform at the New School Back to School Jam at 8 p.m. at Newark Symphony Hall in Newark, N.J. But, Dexter Thomas, CEO of The Promo Kings, the company putting on the event, says the Newark Police received a notice by phone by someone threatening gun violence against Boogie and others on Friday (Aug. 31). Thomas has since decided to cancel the show altogether.
The "Nonchalant" rapper has gotten wind of the claims against his safety and is denying the reports, claiming that he doesn't have issues with a soul. "Mf’s be lien I got no static with ANYONE it’s nothing but love over here," he captioned a picture of the article on Instagram. "Newark if ya want a show book me I gotchu 🖖🏽🖖🏽🖖🏽."
The New Jersey Police Department would not get into specifics about why the show was shut down only noting it was canceled, "in the interest of public safety." Ironically, the event was supposed to promote peace and non-violence for youth as they head back to school.
