In 2016 Bronx native, A boogie wit da Hoodie graced the hip-hop scene as one of New York’s elite artist to watch. Now flash forward to 2017, now a 2017 XXL Freshman 2017 Class pick, A Boogie wit da Hoodie has finally dropped his debut album “ The Bigger Artist” last Friday. A boogie with da hoodie is definitely living up to his title as one of the 2017 XXL freshman picks with this project.
His intro song to the project “No Promises” includes snippets from his Freshmen 17 cypher which is so dope. “No promises” was a great pick for the intro song and really sets the tone for the album. A Boogie incorporated hip-hop and still gave us a mix of an r&b feel with some of the tracks on the album. Switching it up every now and then from track to track, this project is definitely one you can listen to all the way through.He ends the album with a track titled “Beast Mode” featuring fellow XXL freshmen pick PnB rock and artist YoungBoy never broke again. This track was a great way to end the album giving fans a feel to the chemistry between A boogie and PnB. This isn’t their first collaboration and I’m sure it won’t be the last. Features on the project include Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Kodak Black, 21 Savage, PnB Rock, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Robin Thicke and Don Q. Not only are the features dope, the producers included are some of hip-hops heavy hitters such as Metro Boomin, DJ Mustard, Murda Beatz, and Cardo.
Overall, this Bronx Native definitely gave his fans what they were waiting on and I can’t wait for his follow up project. If you haven’t given this project a listen, what are you waiting on? The Bigger Artist is now available on iTunes.
