Boogie's new video for "N*gga Needs" is stunning. The song comes from the California rapper's recent Thirst 48 Part II project, and it is by no means the first time he's made an impact. Boogie has been steadily rising over the past two years, and he's as consistent as he is talented. A combination of impressive technical rapping, thoughtful lyricism, and an honest perspective has made him one of our favorites ever since we saw the "Bitter Raps" video over two years ago.

Boogie's ascendance has been steady, but he's about to have a whole new audience taking notice, as Rihanna just shared a clip of the "N*gga Needs" video with her 46 million Instagram followers, with the caption: "chillz...my new fav." It's a big co-sign, and one that's well deserved. If you don't already know Boogie, get familiar.
