After releasing his debut single, ‘Money is Callin’, in 2020, Bronx-hailing hip hop artist Boog! has continued his mission to kickstart the subgenre, ‘Dawah Rap’, whether it catches on with other artists or not is irrelevant. The genre already contains fresh and versatile grooves – especially after the release of Boog!’s debut album, ‘Boogamorphosis’.
On first impression, the standout single, ‘Fake Love’, carries all of the grit and raw emotion found in archetypal contemporary trap, but behind each of Boog!’s singles, you’ll find the influence of their Islamic faith and their motivation to make the world a better place to live. Considering that altruistic people seem few and far between these days, it will be well worth making room for the luminary on your radar and in your playlists.
