MIC/LINE (formerly named Sound Check) is HYPEBEAST Radio‘s music-centric show that looks to deliver in-depth conversations with your favorite artists, digging into their origin stories and asking the questions you want answered. For our newest episode, we have A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie.

Hailing from Highbridge, Bronx, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, born Artist Julius Dubose, rose to prominence with his 2016 mixtape Artist, leading him media attention, an opportunity to open for Drake and Future‘s Summer Sixteen tour at Madison Square Garden and even a spot on the 2017 XXL Freshman List. Since then, the rapper has released numerous hit singles and two certified gold albums — The Bigger Artist and most recently Hoodie SZN — indefinitely making his mark as the new sound of New York.

In this episode, A Boogie shares his thoughts on becoming a major influence in New York to having a number one album and the critics who spotlight his physical album sales. While the young rapper has achieved more success than most do in a lifetime, he remains low-key on enjoying his achievements.

“I don’t try to enjoy myself too much yet, cause I feel like it ain’t my time yet to do that. I feel like there’s a time in my life that’s way better than this.”

He later discusses his hit single “Look Back At It,” playing basketball with his friends back in Highbridge and going on tour. While some rappers may be about antics, A Boogie prefers to remain humble and hungry. Focusing on his future, he remains clear-headed — all of which have made him be a promising voice as the new “Sound of New York.”
