Recording artist and label CEO, Boonie The Kid proudly returns with a new blazing single “What You Know About,” which will be released through Steelhouse Entertainment and Grind Mode Music Worldwide and WhoMag Distribution/Sony Orchard on November 27, 2020. “What You Know About” was produced by Atlanta, GA based super-producer, Zaytoven Beatz.
In this new single “What You Know About,” Boonie talks to his haters telling them he is getting his grind up and living it big, so what you know about? He goes in on the chorus: “What you know about up and down the interstate? Get to work, bring it back, time to celebrate.” Boonie is a master at telling stories with matter-of-fact delivery while taking listeners through a whirlwind journey of emotions. Boonie’s smooth and steely voice drops on a dripping, heavy bass, hard-hitting beat from one of Atlanta’s finest producers for a masterpiece guaranteed to get heads bobbing and hands thrown in the air. With this new single, Boonie further solidifies his name as one of the biggest independent artists in the game at the moment.
For “What You Know About,” Boonie and Zaytoven met up at the legendary producer, Cory Mo’s MAD Studios, located in Downtown Atlanta and got to work. Boonie was able to identify the track and immediately began working on the hook as Zaytoven assisted in bringing out the feeling and direction of the record. Boonie then returned to Pittsburgh and put the final touches on the record. He then enlisted the talents of the highly decorated engineer, E. Dan of ID Labs Music for the final mix.
Boonie has been in the rap game for so many years and rose to stardom after the release of his last single, Blue Diamond Girl which allowed him to peak at 5 on the Indy Hitmakers Chart along with touring the Midwest on the Big Heff Industry’s Most Wanted Tour. He was interviewed on numerous stations throughout the midwest and was featured on Thisis50 and Jack Thriller’s Party & Bullshit Show.
Boonie’s love for music started at a young age. As a young boy at age 10, while watching the Grammy Awards, he made up his mind that someday he would share the same stage as his idols, Jay-Z, Nas, and Ice Cube. Inspired by a few of the best, Boonie began writing and developing his unique spitting style, writing his first song at the age of 11.
Boonie hopes to rise to the elite status of in the music industry while remaining independent and serving as an inspiration to other independent recording artists who can follow his groundwork. As a C.E.O., Boonie’s goal is to work with other talented recording artists under his Steelhouse Entertainment imprint to help them achieve the proper support and mentorship they need to achieve success in the music industry.
