Biography

Among the first people on this earth, the Africans were the first to lace us with oral traditions and heavy drums. Over time it evolved into the culture we call Hip Hop. So it's no surprise that Al Boogs, hailing from Senegal, West Africa, has taken over this tradition, splashing it with his own flair. He arrived at a young age to the Mecca of Hip Hop, the Bronx. Just like everyone else, Al Boogs couldn't escape the infectious power of this music and immersed himself fully. Al Boogs' first experience was as a DJ, studying the records he played on a daily basis. He moved on to the production aspect and built a home recording studio. His dedication to the craft of beat making brought other artists around to kill his beats. In 1999, Al realized he could bring heat to his own music so he picked up the pen and pad. He practiced day and night to sharpen his lyrics. His versatility became a win-win situation, realizing he could bless an audience with street anthems, club joints and conscious soliloquies all in one serving. In 2003, Home Sweet Home Records, Al's record label, grew out of this dedication to the culture as other artists joined him to create great music and make a mark. With a full roster and a commitment to keeping the elements of Hip Hop alive in his music, Al dropped a few mixtapes, selling thousands in a matter of months. Al's reputation began to pick up speed as he smashed shows across the city and made connections. He rocked and won the Faces of the Crowd Showcase and signed with Talent2K Agency to help him connect with major labels. Currently, Boogs is preparing his debut album titled 'Multipersonalities Vol. 1: A Hip Hop Dream'. A versatile piece of work, Al aims to cater to everyone with this double-album filled with every aspect of his chameleon-like abilities. He moves seamlessly from "Set It Off", a club joint, to "Make U Wifey", a ladies jam, to "Street Soldierz", a banger for the streets. As the first major release from Home Sweet Home Muzik, Al is looking to take his appropriate place in Hip Hop and put his team on the map. Coming from a place where ancestors created the arts and landing in a place where the youth created a form of expression known as Hip Hop, Al has come full circle, finding his calling in a tradition handed down from generation to generation. With his team behind him and his commitment intact, Al Boogs just wants to bring Hip Hop to its home sweet home.
