Bouba Savage Interview: Young up-and-comer looks to become hip-hop’s next rising star

At just 14 years old, New York-based rapper Bouba Savage is ahead of his time. Getting into music much earlier than any of his peers, his determination and work ethic have always been a crutch to his success — especially this early in the game.

Growing up in West Africa and emigrating to NYC in 2016, Bouba initially strived to emanate fellow New York-bred artists in A Boogie Wit A Hoodie and Sheck Wes — adapting to his new environment with the music that immersed him into the culture.

Quickly establishing himself as one of hip-hop’s young and exciting new acts, he posted his first-ever track “Ima Savage” at age 12 that racked up over hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube. Building on “Ima Savage’s” clout to create a vibe all his own, Bouba’s been busy etching out his lane in the industry. Currently sitting at over 28,000 Spotify monthly listeners and 72,000 subscribers on YouTube, the NYC artist has shared a handful of singles over the course of 2021. With recent tracks in “HaHa,” “Lockdown” and “YAYA,” his energy and vocal presence continue to blow away listeners, music executives and artists alike. With a refined New York drill flow, Bouba can become a killer on any track he touches.

Catching the attention of artists in Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert, Pop Smoke, A$AP Rocky, Lil Tecca, Lil Yachty, Playboi Carti and more, co-signs of this stature seemingly push Bouba towards stardom in the very near future. Releasing the first single “Wanna Hate” off his upcoming debut project “I’m Amazing” in March, the track was Bouba’s first release with New York powerhouse collective Highbridge The Label. With tons of traction behind him, Bouba’s looking to blow sooner rather than later.

Now, as the youngster continues to put the pieces in place, it’s go-time for Bouba, sitting down with OGM host Hakeem Rowe to speak on his impending debut “I’m Amazing,” The Kid LAROI, his upbringing, inspirations, “Aim For The Moon” and more in his Our Generation Music exclusive interview.
