Still working on that hot first release.



It’s not often that you come across a talented and seasoned artist whose paid dues,achieved success, experienced career setbacks, and still continues to remain humble and hungry enough to persevere.
Sly Boogy was born and raised in San Bernardino, CA located in the Inland Empire, also know as the I.E., or simply the E. His inspiration for writing began at the age of 12, with
the influence of his elementary school teachers and his relatives who were artists. His father, two uncles (one of which was blind and played the guitar and piano), and aunt, were in an R&B group. By the influence of his peers in his hometown neighborhood of West Side of San Bernardino he began to rap.
His first entry into the music industry was at the age of 19 when he signed to an indie label under the Sony/RCA umbrella. It was during this time that he had his first experience working with label staff under artist development. Although there was no commercial release it was Sly's first encounter with the music business.
Sly went on to form a group with his close friend and cousin that later got signed under music mogul's Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis' Perspective/A&M Records in 1996. The label ended up becoming defunct due to bankruptcy and the album was never released.
However it was during this time that Sly was able to hone his production skills learning music theory and midi production in college.
Sly signed to Sway and Tech’s Bolo Entertainment in 2001 and released their first project, “Judgment Day” in 2002. Prior to the release Sly had received a considerable amount of radio play on Power 106 with his “Jackin’ 4 Beats 2002” which was world
premiered by Mr. Choc and then supported by DJ Felli Fel. During the period of time before the release of “Judgment Day” there was a series of singles released all receiving
airplay (“Fatal Mistake,” “Summertime,” & “California”).
In late 2002 Sly and King Tech flew out to New York to go meet with Clive Davis and staff at the J Records offices in Manhattan along with Sway. Sly had the opportunity to meet Clive personally and perform a brief audition. Shortly thereafter Bolo Entertainment formed a joint venture with J Records. Following the signing, Judgment Day was rereleased with Bolo/J Records, including a remix to “California” featuring some of the
West Coast’s most notable artists (Mack 10, Jayo Felony, Kurupt, Crooked I, E40, Roscoe, Truth Hurts, Butch Cassidy and Tupac Shakur). There were also another series of singles released under Bolo/J Records that received radio play nation wide (“Thatz My Name,” “Itz Nuthin,” and “If You Got Crew” featuring Jagged Edge).
Sly had the opportunity to work closely with super-producer Scott Storch in the studio creating the singles that gave him worldwide exposure. He also had the opportunity to be involved in many live performances gracing the stage with the likes of Mobb Deep,
Twista, Chingy, Ying Yang Twins, Pit Bull, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, & many more.
Sly was released from his contract in 2008 and has released a series of various projects since he became a free agent. You can expect Sly Boogy to create a powerful presence in
