With “Oh My,” Compton rapper Boogie has one of the best songs of 2015 so far, but his new mixtape The Reach goes a lot deeper than that. The project drops today, on the one-year anniversary of his last mixtape, Thirst 48. It’s also his son’s birthday. Boogie flexes his technical skills throughout the project, but songs like “Further” and “First Evergreen” stand out not for great rapping or hard beats, but for Boogie’s storytelling ability and perspective. If you’re looking for a new rapper with a heart and a message, Boogie’s your guy.

Get more familiar with Boogie in our short documentary, and catch him live in NYC at No Ceilings on July 8. Buy tickets here.
