COMING SOON TO ALL YOUR FAVORITE MUSIC PLATFORMS.
Alvin Nix, known professionally as Boonie The Kid, is a national recording artist, songwriter and entrepreneur. Boonie was born and raised in the steel city, Pittsburgh, Pa. The middle child of five, growing up in the projects to parents who struggled with drug and alcohol addictions, Boonie witnessed many things that no human being, let alone a child, should see. At a very young age he did odd jobs, even committing petty crimes, to help bring food and a little bit of money into the household. Always searching for a healthy outlet for his emotions, Boonie lost himself in the words and beats of the lyrical geniuses of his time. As young as 10, while watching the Grammy Awards, he knew someday he would share the same stage as his idols, Jay-Z, Nas and Ice Cube. Inspired by a few of the best, Boonie began writing and developing his own unique spitting style, writing his first song at the age of 11.
With the release of his first mixtape, Raising the Bar, in 2016 on Datpiff, Boonie aquired immediate success and the positive feedback was overwhelming. The project landed him a record deal with Penalty Records. Boonie achieved new heights with his next project, immediately following that up later in the year with the release of the EP, Few Levels Higher. The press reaction was unprecedented for Boonie The Kid and the video received over 300k views on YouTube. He was featured on The Jack Thriller Show from Thisis50.com to discuss his music, getting shot and what was coming next for this young star on the rise.
Returning to the scene after a short hiatus from Penalty Records and landing an endorsement deal with Vodka Brand Corps for their Blue Diamond Vodka line, Boonie The Kid is making his mark. In addition to his endorsement, Boonie relaunched his own company, Steelhouse Entertainment. Retaining management and worldwide distribution from Grind Mode Music Worldwide's CEO Dion Dupree, has allowed Boonie to remain independent. This new union sparked a power move by enlisting the talents of Diggin In The Crates Super Producer, Buckwild, for a new single. Blue Diamond Girl , features up and coming songstress, Jahna Rachelle of Kurrup Money Entertainment. The success of this single has ignited a firestorm of press and accolades for Boonie.
He embarked on a press run with various national radio interviews, Atlanta's BE 100, Washington DC's WPGC 95.5 and many more. Blue Diamond Girl hit 5 on the Indie Hitmakers Soundscan Chart Top Singles and 6 on the Top Single Sales Chart. This success afforded him the ability to tour and meet some of the influential people at Billboard's Corporate Offices in New York. Boonie continued his push, landing him on the Who Mag TV Show which led to his Blue Diamond Girl video getting a million + views on YouTube. After completing a 6 city radio tour that hit Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Chicago and Louisville, Boonie hit the Mediabase with his single on Music Choice, XM and several B market stations including Cleveland’s WENZ and Buffalo's WBLK. He hit 188 on Urban charts and was on the Rhythmic Charts as well. Hitting number 5 on 2 indie billboard charts. Performing alongside the likes of Lil Dirk, Fabolous and Def Loaf, Boonie The Kid is steadily becoming a force to be reckoned with. Boonie is currently poised to release his next single, What you Know About, enlisting the talents of super producer, Zaytoven. The single and video are slated to release in 2020.
