KANDYPENS MAKES PLAY INTO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY WITH THE RELEASE OF BODEGA
New Video By New York City Rapper Boogz Boogetz Marks The First Official Release For The Leading Vaporizer Company
Today leading vaporizer company, KandyPens, released a new video by up and coming New York City rapper Boogz Boogetz. Bodega marks the first premiere under the KandyPens Artist Ambassador Program with much more to come before the end of the year.
“First and foremost, we are lovers of hip-hop culture,” says Graham Gibson, President/Founder/CEO of KandyPens. “The record labels have abandoned most up and coming artists because of music streaming. We created the Artist Ambassador Program as a way to put some wind into these artists’s sails – we chose Boogz Boogetz because he is 2016 hip-hop. He’s sitting on chrome with Bodega. He’s got the look, the flows, the rhymes, and the beats. All he needed was a little juice.”
Produced by Nick Jr. On The Beat, Bodega, is a nod to the mosh pit wildin’ out music with a laid back cool vibe that made Onyx famous. Honing in on that point, the gritty Tymoore directed video was shot in different bodegas scattered across Queens and Brooklyn.
“We bringin the trap to the heart of New York City,” said Boogz. “It’s just representing where I come from. Everything from the lifestyle, where we hang out at, smoke weed and hustle. I was just trying to make a song that anyone from my city could relate to,” he explained.
Originally from Rockaway Queens, Boogz Boogetz born Jabbar Scott, found his way into music through the battle rap scene. A close friend with a recording studio took notice and Boogz’s grind has continued ever since. Boogz later dropped a handful of mixtapes starting with his 2009 debut mixtape Gucciz and Groupiez. Also, DJ Khaled hosted Boogz’s follow-up
Far Rockaways Most Wanted featuring guest appearances from Ace Hood, Kid Ink and Wiz Khalifa.
For 2016, Boogz plans on raising the bar even higher with a one two combo of projects. One will be a followup to C.O.O.L. 2 and feature production from frequent Fetty Wap collaborator
Yung Lan and Eardrummers member JBo. The other is a full on album produced exclusively
with famed producer Harry Fraud.
Founded in Santa Barbara, CA in 2014, KandyPens was created from an idea to one day be the best vaporizer brand in the world. A company where next generation technology meets cutting edge branding and high-level product integration, a true lifestyle brand. That idea came to life with an Indiegogo campaign that got funded in 2014 for their first product, the SkyCloud.
In 2016, Kandypens launched the Artist Ambassador and Brand Partnership programs. Artists who have already been tapped to rep the brand as Ambassadors include Kodak Black, PnB Rock, Dreezy, Zoey Dolllaz, Young Ma, A Boogie wit Da Hoodie, Maaly Raw, Boogz Boogetz, OB O’Brien, Cal Scrubby, among others, which will rollout later this year, slated for release Chirstmas 2016.
