Every now and then you come across an artist with a dope music background, one that gives credit to the greats before us and it’s always dope to hear the enthusiasm in the artist voice about their musical heritage.
And that’s how I and AceBoogie271 started the conversation by him first telling me that his grandfather (Benjamin Johnson) played alongside the Commadors and he grew up hearing stories about life on the road and the highs and lows of the entertainment life. But those stories keep AceBoogie 271 going in his career and with so much inspiration there is no stopping this artist because at this rate there are no limits for him.
I chopped it up with AceBoogie271 and here’s what happened. ..
Me: AceBoogie271 is a different name that looks like it may have some meaning, where did it come from?
AceBoogie271: It came from the streets and from the movie “Paid in Full”, which is my favorite movie. I was the youngest, wisest person in the crew so they called me “Ace” and them Boogie comes from the movie. 271 comes from a label that I started and what I stand for.
Me: That’s dope, not too many people your age know about that movie and it’s nice to hear that you identify from it as well have drawn inspiration. And with that do you consider yourself just a rapper or a singer?
AceBoogie271: I consider myself to be a Jack of All Trades , I am very versatile, as someone who has written over 1000 songs which are archived I know there is nothing I can’t do .
Me: Wow you are a well- rounded individual whose focus is awesome, I can definitely see you going places creatively.
AceBoogie271: Yes I am, I plan on writing for so many others including myself
Me: Who is someone you are interested in working with?
AceBoogie271: 21 Savage because we share the same story of coming from nothing to something
