(NG) Boogey: Nouveau Niveau LP

They said hiphop was dead in Nigeria but we were just too busy looking in the wrong places. Boogey has been in the game for years putting out hiphop music consistently & never for once betraying the art form. Of course we have prominent hiphop heads in Nigeria, the likes of MI Abaga, Terry Tha Rapman, Modenine, Vector, Illbliss, Iceprince, to but name a few, but Boogey has been there alongside the likes of AQ, Pherowshuz, McSkill ThaPreaha, etc., leading the cause of the undergroup who have kept the art form of hiphop pure and uncorrupted. Nowadays, Boogey and these acts have started finding their way into the light and renewed acceptance by the urban youth population.

Boogey is a three times Headies nominee and this is his sixth music compilation project. This is definitely an outstanding piece of work. The project according to Boogey is about dealing with the demons in his closet and sharing them openly with his fans in black and white via his music. The project is a 15 tracks album with an impressive list of collaborations which include Terry Tha Rapman, Sojay, Lady Donli, Jazz, Kemi Smallz, GoodGirl LA, Tay Iwar, to but mention a few. It is of note to say that the album is one that has something for fans with different variations of appeal of hiphop music. Heaven Can Wait with sojay is an uptempo rap and soulful rnb mixture that will drive your blood, Level VI is a vibrant strictly hiphop piece, Solo with Jazz & Kemi Smallz infuses that Jazz feel with a slow serene hiphop flow, Magic Man with Terry Tha Rapman is definitely an attractive busta-rhymes-like flow with Terry coming through with his smooth yet comic lines and you can find out the rest when you listen to the album. This album can do no wrong, or did it? We’ll that is for you to comment.
