In a new interview with MONTREALITY, the Bronx-born rapper admitted that he was the hope of JAY-Z and Roc Nation are coming to call before penning a deal with Atlantic Records.
"Diddy reached," Boogie said. "Khaled reached. A lot of people who came as a matter of fact. I think that the only person who has not reached to try to sign me when the whole world was looking to sign me, it was probably JAY-Z. [He] was the only person that I'm not listening. I do not feel any type of way, but I felt like, 'Damn', because I've always dreamed of something like that. For me, that was one of my goals, but after a while I had to wake up and realize, "Damn, I could get to be bigger than that." I could follow in his footsteps and become as great as him. You could do it in a completely different way and to be as big as he is."
Later in the interview, A Boogie board discussed the possibility of doing a joint project with the PnB Rock-and-Black Kodak.
"Right now, I think that I and PnB Rock has that type of chemistry," he said. "I think that we could go forward and backward and make a real dope album. I could make good music with a lot of people. I feel like I and Kodak [Black] would be a good tape or album together. Word."
A Boogie board is scheduled to release their first studio album, The greatest Artist, Friday (29 September). The 15-track project features special guest appearances from Kodak Black, Chris Brown, Trey Songz and PnB Rock, among others.
