Name: Boogz Boogetz
Where I’m from: Far Rockaway, Queens, New York aka The 6th Borough
I’ve been rapping since: I was 13 years old. I developed my style from listening to my brother Un Pacino. He put out an album with Prodigy called Product of the 80s. Through him I learned how to formulate my own sound.
My style has been compared to: A lot of the greats. I don’t want to compare myself to just one person, because my subject matter and flow can vary based on the song. I take pride in being a versatile artist.
My standout records / moments have been: My standout moments have been doing the mixtape with DJ Khaled and DJ Ill Will and DJ Rockstar entitled Far Rockaway’s Most Wanted. I did “Young Rockstars” with Wiz Khalifa and Yung Berg. Another one is “Favorite Show,” with Wiz Khalifa as well. Standout performances for me were tearing down CMJ, and bringing out Prodigy and D-Pryde. I also did a really live set at SXSW.
I’m gonna change the game by: My unique sound and creativity. I bring a lot of energy to my records.
I’d like to work with: I liked working with Action Bronson. I would like to work with Harry Fraud. I have enjoyed working with Prodigy and Wiz Khalifa. I also enjoyed working with Chinx Drugz. I hope to work with Big Boi, Rockie Fresh, & Thelophilus London. Nipsey Hussle too.
My goal in hip-hop is: To become successful. To have a steady fan-base
and a cult following.
I’m gonna be the next: Trendsetter. The next big new sound. Entrepreneur, go-to guy for these hits. Next Russell Simmons, next Malcolm X.
