“Boogie is everything I look for in an MC,”, said Eminem. “Unique voice and point of view combined with crazy wordplay. This is a great fit and I’m excited for what’s to come.”
Hailing from the Westside of Compton, Boogie grew up in the same city that produced a who’s who of rap’s greatest superstars including Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, The Game and YG. Boogie released a series of mixtapes that put the young MC on the map and captured the attention of Interscope Records which then brought interest from Eminem and Shady Records. His second mixtape, The Reach, released in 2015, led Pitchfork to call him “one of the best young rappers in the country” and the LA Times to comment that it features “the kind of vivid, full-fledged production usually reserved for a successful mainstream artist on his or her second or third major-label effort.”
Step into the multiverse of Ben Reilly. Marvel fans recognized it immediately. As a comic book enthusiast, the rapper from Atlanta pays tribute to his favorite Marvel superhero: Spider-Man. Specifically to the clone of Peter Parker. And just like Peter Parker, Ben.N Reilly has an alter ego: “Be.N stand for ‘Be. Nahree, It’s supposed to represent me embracing myself from within.” Er is geen mooiere boodschap dan die van zelfliefde.
The rapper switchesbetween rapping and singing, delivering diary-like entries on themes of self-doubt, perseverance, and loyalty as he plays with different flows while distorting his voice.
