Platinum-selling rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie has announced his Better Off Alone Tour, which stops at the iThink Financial Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach on Wednesday, June 5.

A Boogie's music is a staple of radio rap. Singles such as "Numbers," featuring Roddy Ricch and Gunna; "Drowning." featuring Kodak Black; and "Look Back At It" have all charted on the Billboard Hot 100 thanks to a combination of dramatic production and accessible lyrics. A native of the Bronx, A Boogie started rapping after his parents caught him selling drugs and decided, Fresh Prince of Bel Air-style, to get him out of a bad environment. However, instead of relatives in a tony Los Angeles neighborhood, he went alone to Fort Pierce. (That makes him an honorary Floridian in our books.) He took his rapper name from Paid in Full character Ace Boogie, as well as his tendency to wear hoodies.

Working on his rap career from his apartment, he moved back to New York and began putting out tracks on SoundCloud and mixtapes such as Artist, which gained him acclaim. In 2016, he opened three dates of Drake and Future's Summer Sixteen Tour before signing to Atlantic Records. The following year, he earned a spot on the XXL Freshman List alongside future superstar Playboi Carti and controversial Broward rapper XXXtentacion, who was shockingly murdered a year later.

A Boogie (that's the letter A, by the way, not the word "a") will bring along some up-and-coming rappers as openers. First up is Memphis native NLE Choppa, whose hits include the "Shotta Flow" and the raunchy, Sexyy Red-featuring "Slut Me Out," followed by 17-year-old Luh Tyler, who hails from Tallahassee and is pursuing a romantic sound with newest single "Change My Wayz." St. Louis newcomer Dess Dior and dancehall phenom Byron Messia, a Jamaican who grew up in St. Kitts and Nevis, round out the group.
