Last week, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie issued an apology to fans for the lengthy wait for the deluxe edition of Artist 2.0. In a time where rappers have essentially rolled out deluxe versions just days after the release of the original to boost first-week album sales, A Boogie's had months to release it, but last week, he announced it was on the way.
A Boogie With Da Hoodie returned this morning with his latest single, "Bleed," the first offering off of Artist 2.0 deluxe. S. Dot and JoeFromYO stripped down the production to haunting keys and sliding 808s with angelic vocals lingering in the rear. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie lurks through the beat with infectious hums in between reflections of the trials and tribulations. There's a sinister touch to the track as a whole that sounds like it would've made for an even better collab with Pop Smoke.
Check out A Boogie's new track below.
Heard they wanna hear me lackin,' oh please
They don't know I'm really ohdee
N***as rattin', eatin' off cheese
Just free the real until they all free
