CMG’s Emerging Star Big Boogie Unveils New Project ‘Underrated’

Today, hip-hop artist Big Boogie released his new project, Underrated, a 16-track body of work that includes a collaboration with Yo Gotti. The Memphis native dropped the new project via Gotti’s CMG record label and you can buy/stream it: HERE

The release comes shortly after the CMG signee unveiled brand-new visuals for “Mixed Emotions” earlier this week. It also comes a year after Boogie released his mixtape, Final Nightmare, in December 2020 that featured guest appearances from Gotti, Moneybagg Yo and Dej Loaf and earned 71 million US streams.

Underrated also comes a little over a year after Boogie formally signed to CMG in November 2020, where Gotti gifted him with an iced-out CMG chain during a dinner ceremony to welcome him to the acclaimed label. Most recently, the Memphis Grizzlies invited Boogie to be a halftime performer at their 2021-22 home opener at the FedEx Forum against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Boogie first built a buzz in his hometown of Memphis a few years ago, prompting Gotti to invite him to perform at his annual Birthday Bash concert at FedEx Forum in 2018 and again in 2019 and get live performance experience. Over the years, Gotti would mentor Boogie – specifically as he released mixtapes such as “The Final Chapter” in 2018 – before finally signing him in 2020.

Beyond receiving mentorship from Gotti, Boogie has also developed a rapport with his favorite rapper and fellow CMG counterpart – MoneyBagg Yo – which resulted in their dynamic collaboration on “Thuggin” last year.

The 25-year-old also cultivated friendships and co-signs from multiplatinum producers like Tay Keith (credits: Drake, Travis Scott, Lil Baby) and Drumma Boy (credits: T.I., Jeezy, 2 Chainz) and received support from a wide array of veteran artists, such as Offset and Young Buck.

Boogie recently garnered viral success on TikTok for his guest verse on Mohead Mike’s “PTPOM (Remix).” Prior to being released to streaming platforms, the song had garnered over 100,000 TikTok fan videos.
