Back in 2012 Chicago’s Boogey Robinson announced that he would teach himself how to rap. The self made producer started a rap group known as GRINDorDIE, with his cousin Yessir. Just a year later, the group broke up due to creative differences. With a fresh start, Boogey dropped a few tapes, videos, and songs and amassed a cult like following. He gained over 900 followers on SoundCloud and almost 2K on Twitter based off his consistency in his music and content.
His strongest project, The Producer Who Wanted To Be A Rapper, dropped just last year to great fanfare. The opening cut, FASN, was a highlight not just on the tape, but in his entire discography. Luckily, the official music video hit YouTube just a few days ago. Although it’s just under 2 minutes, it continues to show Boogey’s commitment to artistry at a high level.
I highly recommend you stream his EP’s which you can find below. His newest is burgers., with a more laid back and abstract delivery. The beats stay abrasive with help from Stimp C, Young Forever, and more.
He dropped another notable and political video at the end of last year that is brief, but still packs a punch. You can peep below.
