Rising hip-hop star A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, praised by several publications including the New York Times, will make his Great New York State Fair debut at 8 p.m. Saturday, September 2 on the Chevy Court stage. Concerts at Chevy Court, which drew more than a quarter million people in 2017, are sponsored by Chevrolet and are free with admission to the Fair.
In less than two years, the multi-platinum Bronx native A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie has become an imposing force in hip-hop, proclaimed the “most promising young rapper the city has produced in some time” by the New York Times. In 2017, he released his debut album, “The Bigger Artist.”
Forbes said that “A Boogie is “no one hit wonder,” and at the age of 21, having three Billboard Hot 100 singles proves them right. After he broke the ice with "Timeless" off of his TBA EP, his next two hits became RIAA Certified Platinum including his smash hit "Drowning" featuring Kodak Black, which spent 21 weeks on the chart and was streamed over 300 million times. The XXL Freshman’s debut features a high-profile cast of featured artists including Chris Brown, 21 Savage, Trey Songs, PnB Rock, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, and fellow High Bridge The Label rapper Don Q. Production duties were executed by an eclectic group; Metro Boomin, Scott Storch, DJ Mustard, Murda Beats, Cardo and more.
There’s no doubt that A Boogie, born Artist Dubose, was born to live up to his name. From being called “a key part of the revitalization of New York rap” by Forbes, to playing Jay-Z's Made in America Festival, to being brought out by Drake at his sold-out Madison Square Garden appearance, the 21-year old with an affinity for euphony is on the brink of superstardom.
