What’s with this immense pool of talent coming out of Long Beach, California (I mean, aside from it being the greatest city in the world)? While still rife with the gang-banging culture, the 562 is loaded with artists who bring an alternative, humanizing view of their world. If you’re a fan of the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Vince Staples (and of course you do, that’s likely why you’re here), then I feel that you’ll definitely enjoy the sounds of Boogie. The young emcee released his debut project, Thirst 48, back in June, and it has garnered positive reviews from a variety of publications. But it was his recent stop by Sway In The Morning that formally… uh… swayed (no pun intended) me.
