Boogie and J.I.D need to work together more often. Boogie came through with his debut album for Shady Records Everything's For Sale on Friday (January 25). Tucked away on the album is "Soho," a banger that features the Dreamville lyricist. The track is aimed at fake friends and obnoxious business meetings. "Fuckin' tired of comin' from Compton to go to Hollywood," explains Boogie on the intro of the track. "Fucking dinner meetings that last 30 minutes when traffic be like an hour."
SoHo is in Manhattan, but J.I.D. and Boogie drop LA references throughout the song, leading me to believe they may be referencing Soho House in West Hollywood. "Soho" is produced by James Teej, who laces the banger with a futuristic trailing synth. The beat switches at the end, and mellows out for Boogie to drop introspective bars about his own fears.
Uh, don't force my hand
I'm forced to squeeze
Unfortunately, I'm forced to clean the earth
And feed my seed with dreams that's been through dirt, fuck
Uh, I'm forced to chain
My course, I'm cursed, of course remorse is gone
I seen my bros get turned to corpse
I'm forced to see em' using force and still they're free in court, uh
