A Boogie Wit da Hoodie ‘swervin’ into Seton Hall

Seton Hall students were ‘drowning’ in famous rapper A Boogie Wit da Hoodie’s music at the Student Activities Board annual Onward spring concert on March 26. 

Lil Tecca was originally set to perform for the community, but a turn of events led to a new performing artist. Olayinka Bishi, a senior public relations major, said she was excited about the switch because she “wasn’t interested in Lil Tecca being the performing artist to begin with.”

“A Boogie’s music is like therapy for me–he just speaks to me in a different way,” Bishi said. “I’ve been a fan since 2016.”

Bishi said she enjoyed the concert with her friends. Her favorite part of the concert was when A Boogie performed one of his hit songs, “Drowning,” while throwing water on the crowd. 

“The vibes were immaculate, and the crowd was lit, and A Boogie was even more lit,” Bishi said. 

A Boogie literally and figuratively “blew the roof” off of the fieldhouse where the concert was held. Bishi said her least favorite part was when particles from the ceiling fell into her eyes. 

Similar to Bishi, Courtney Campbell, a senior public relations major, said the ceiling pieces that fell during the concert got into her eyes, impacting her experience at the concert. 

“The vibrations of the speakers was making the ceiling debris fall and it was getting onto everyone,” Campbell said. “It was getting into my eyes which made watching A Boogie perform hard.”

The ceiling debris didn’t stop Campbell from enjoying the concert though. As a fan since 2016, Campbell said A Boogie is one of her favorite artists.

“Growing up and living in New York, my friends and I would always listen to his music, and I’ve even gone to see him in concert a couple of times,” Campbell said. “His music is real and is just a vibe.”

This time seeing A Boogie was different for Campbell. She and seven of her friends from Seton Hall attended the concert together and “had so much fun during the performance.”

“I loved the fact that there were not too many people,” Campbell said. “It really felt like a private concert.”

Campbell said she loves A Boogie’s music with her favorite song being “4 Min Convo” which he didn’t perform during the concert. 

“It’s a beautifully written song that talks about a lot of real things,” Campbell said. “The song reminds me of late summer nights where life feels good.”

Unlike Campbell, Tyler Gordon, a sophomore sports media major, said his favorite song is “Voices in My Head” by A Boogie.

“A Boogie is one of my favorite artists,” Gordon said. “I like his music a lot.”

Gordon attended the concert with his friends who were all shocked about the artist switch. Being a fan since 2014 before the rapper became famous, Gordon was excited about A Boogie’s performance. 

“I got to see one of my favorite artists for the first time,” Gordon said. “During the concert, it was nothing but enjoyment.”
