If Artist Dubose, a.k.a. A Boogie wit da Hoodie, is anything, he’s an ambassador for the Bronx. Around the time of his debut mixtape, 2016's Artist, the Highbridge native emerged to fulfill NYC's perennial need for a local hero. On International Artist, A Boogie is a reflection of his borough's wide-ranging cultural enclaves, flaunting his versatility by sewing his own throaty melodies to the respective sounds of superstars the world over. The EP features voices as diverse as Jamaican dancehall deejay Alkaline, African- and Caribbean-influenced London singer Kojo Funds, and Puerto Rico’s J Alvarez (who raps exclusively in Spanish)—all of whom found support in the Bronx, even before they'd linked with the man who put his hood back on the map.
