Boogie had one of the best songs and music videos of last year with “Bitter Raps,” and he’s still very much on the rise. In 2014, his Thirst 48 mixtape acted as an introduction to his West Coast style and his intelligent perspective, and he doesn’t intend to let up any time soon. To find out more, we met up with Boogie in Los Angeles and spoke with him about where he came from, what he’s trying to do, and where he’s going.

Watch above, and check out Boogie’s latest song, “Further,” below. His next project is called The Reach, and it’s coming soon.
