BOYBOIIAT is the professional name of emerging independent Hip-Hop artist, Arty Tuggle. Born and raised in Kansas City, the 28 year-old artist is known for a chilled-out West Coast influenced party vibe. He has a distinctive look and sound that mixes elements of Trap, stoner Rap, Funk and Pop.
He made his professional recording debut in 2019 with the album “From the Heart of K.C.” Since then the prolific rapper has delivered a remarkable volume of work including two full length albums, an EP and nearly a dozen singles. In that time his music has connected with Hip-hop fans around the world, with tracks like “Gah Bag” and “Skunker” earning thousands of spins across multiple platforms.
“I Ain’t Playing” is the first song and current single/video from BoyBoiiat’s 2020 album “BoyBoii Where You Been?” The track is a fun mix of old-school and new, from the rapper’s choice of beats to his clever lyrical style. A retro synth bass rolls on a classic 808 groove as ambient keys paint the edges of the mix with airy and melodic arpeggios. Meanwhile, BoyBoiiat delivers plenty of Hip-hop posturing with a healthy dose of comedy. It’s a fun track.
