Columbus, OH

Fresh out of Columbus, Ohio, this 19 year old gifted hip-hop, rapper/songwriter, BOOMY, is the next hot hip-hop rapper to hit the industry scene. It started as a general dream and hobby for this talented young man, but manifested into a Hip Hop need and a street-worthy artist. The name Boomy originated from Boom-Boom, a nickname given to him by his uncle Kevin “Rhymemaster ‘K” Barton as a baby. As Boomy grew older his grandmother started calling him Boomy for short. However, it is well believed that Boomy will soon become a household name. At the age of 11, Boomy started putting rhymes together as he imitated rappers such as Tupac Shakur, Biggie Smalls, DMX, Jay Z, and from his hometown, Lil’ Bow Wow. Similar to Dr. Dre with Snoop Dogg, Boomy’s uncle, Mann B., a producer/engineer and the CEO of Urban Development, an independent company based out of Columbus, Ohio, initially underestimated Boomy and did not take him seriously. Boomy had to convince his uncle by working harder than the average talented artist to get noticed. Also inspired by his uncle, Kevin “Rhymemaster ‘K” Barton, who was also lyrically talented, Boomy, adding the advice of supportive family members and friends, put his passion for rapping into motion. Molding the single “Boomy Boomy”, and co-writing “Supergirl”, with the Columbus, Ohio R&B teen sensation, Ette’, and singer/songwriter Trunell Salter, younger brother to LaFace Records recording artist, Sam Salter, Boomy began performing his new songs at local schools around Columbus to get a reaction from the crowd. “At first it was a bit scary, not only being up on stage, but also performing my original material for the first time and getting the crowds reaction” says Boomy. Boomy’s songwriting skills and stage presence soon paid off. Urban Development offered Boomy a production/spec arrangement allowing Boomy to finally begin putting his skills on track. The single “Boomy Boomy”, produced in 2003, was a mid tempo hip-hop dance track that definitely displays Boomy’s confident writing ability with pride, and the second single “Supergirl” is truly a lyrical love poem that many teens today can relate to. Boomy’s unique laid back, yet energetic style, gives off a crowd moving vibe similar to rap artist/s Lil Wayne, Cassidy, Ludacris, T.I., etc. “Since recording my first single Supergirl, the studio has become my favorite place to be. I love hip-hop music, and the studio is a place where I can be free to express what I feel”, says Boomy. Boomy is currently in the studio working on his second project, that supercedes his debut CD called "The Mixtape", which he is currently selling and promoting. Boomy has gained a love for performing. He has performed all over his hometown at the fresh age of 18! Boomy's upcoming project, BOOMY HAYES, which will be produced by Mann B. of Urban Development ( will prove to be a smash for the street, demanding airplay in the club and the radio. Even this project promises to be loaded with different styles showing his versatility and his growth, loving to move you. Keep an eye out for BOOMY HAYES coming to your block in the next couple of months.
