Boogie’s Lengthy Everythings For Sale Serves Up A Curveball To The Hip Hop Industry

I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again: Today’s Rap offerings are nowhere near as creative, compelling or even emotionally-substantial as they used to be, consistently landing somewhere between monotonous Club Banger sensibilities or repetitive lyrical structures that’re indistinguishable from the competition, a problem that’s especially prevalent in all the Trap music that spawned from the SoundCloud demographic. It’s not like there aren’t a fair share of genius acts out there, wordsmiths like Kendrick Lamar, Anderson .Paak & Mozzy giving the industry a run for their money, but the vast majority of rappers who get their start on Worldstar Hip Hop lack any sense of personality that’d warrant their obscene mainstream success, standing so many levels below the varied Hip Hop voices of the nineties & early-noughties, back when you needed no more than two bars of any song to instantly recognize who the rapper was by their voice & flow alone – In the latter-end of 2018 & especially the fantastic beginning of 2019, the Hip Hop industry has really done its due diligence to bring much of this artistic creativity back to the scene much as the House & Techno markets have started shunning Tropical compositions in favour of the more percussion-heavy arrangements of the late-nineties Diva House persuasion, enriching the market as a whole & replenishing the dominance Hip Hop once held over audiences. Among many other artists who’ve restored my faith in today’s scene, Compton, California native Boogie – not to be confused with A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie – has thrust himself to the forefront of public reception with his latest Everythings For Sale album, assuring the iconic sonic profile of the southern California Bloods gang would persist into the future, showing all the wannabe-gangbangers of the Florida rap scene what true streetwise flow is all about.
