Last night in New York City, multi-platinum recording artist A Boogie wit da Hoodie celebrated the release of his highly anticipated new album, Artist 2.0, with a special album release livestream. Presented by Rap Rotation, Amazon Music’s playlist and home for Hip Hop in heavy rotation, the event streamed live on Amazon Music’s Twitch channel and was hosted by DJ Akademiks.
The livestream was a celebration of all things A Boogie, counting down the minutes to the release of the “Artist 2.0” at midnight. The stream featured the artist playing NBA 2K20 against a fan in front of a packed crowd at Showfields in Manhattan.
Later in the broadcast, Akademiks hosted a wide-ranging interview and AMA with A Boogie, which featured the artist discussing everything from the making of the album to the order he hoped his fans would listen to the tracks on the album (front-to-back, for the record).
At midnight, Akademiks and A Boogie celebrated the release of the album by playing brand-new tracks from Artist 2.0. Throughout the stream, Akademiks also interviewed popular Twitch personalities, including, Bifuteki, IFCYipeS, SmugDaBest, and xFlyNationTVx.
