A Boogie wit da Hoodie delays ‘Me Vs. Myself’ to December

One of New York’s most adored hip-hop stars in the last decade is almost ready to reclaim his throne.

On Sept. 5, A Boogie wit da Hoodie took to social media to share with fans that his upcoming album Me vs. Myself was initially set to drop on Nov. 4, making it his first full-length project since before the COVID-19 pandemic began.

However, after Drake and 21 Savage announced they were changing the release date of their upcoming Her Loss collab album from Oct. 28 to Nov. 4, A Boogie figured he’d also delay his project. On Halloween (Oct. 31), A Boogie jokingly announced via Instagram story that he had moved his album’s release to Dec. 9, over a month later than it was expected to drop. The pre-save page for the tape on Apple Music already reflects this change.

In preparation for the tape’s arrival, A Boogie unveiled the 22-song track list for Me vs. Myself on Oct. 26, which showed cuts like “24 Hours (feat. Lil Durk)” and “Man in the Mirror” from his 2021 7-song EP B4 AVA, as well as his April 2022 single “Playa (feat. H.E.R.)” as a bonus track. Although he hid the names of features for songs that had not yet been released, the track list reveal showed that his two promotional singles from October will land on the LP.

A Boogie released the fifth song for MvM titled “Take Shots” on Oct. 21, which features Tory Lanez and was accompanied by a music video three days later (Oct. 24). As a song that A Boogie had teased previously and that fans had been dying to hear, “Take Shots” is another heater that’s right up the New Yorker’s alley.

Over a slick guitar loop and infectious drums, A Boogie’s crooned bars like “I took too many tonight is a movie” and “we can do a trio, me, you and your migo” build the perfect atmosphere for a drunk night. On top of this, Tory’s dynamic verse where he switches from a high-pitched sung flow to a more stern rapping voice depict the mindset of taking a girl home after a night out.

French bitch from Montana, told her I’ma Shmurda dance in that coochie

Look, f**k all that singing shit, let’s keep it raw and rugged

I wanna see you take shots ’til your body’s all in my covers

And your friends threesoming, they talkin’ all these discussions

And we at the table speakin’ who freaky and doin’ what when we back at the spot

Earlier in October, A Boogie properly began his rollout by releasing the lead single “B.R.O. (Better Ride Out)” with Roddy Ricch on Oct. 7. Just days after the clip of he and Roddy bumping the track in the studio went viral on TikTok, “B.R.O.” put fans on notice that the duo is ready to regain their notoriety as two of the genre’s best melodic voices.

Carried by his “If I call you my brother then we gon’ riiide” hook, this new pop trap cut establishes excellent chemistry between the NY and LA natives as their second ever collaboration after 2010’s “Numbers” with Gunna.

It’s safe to say that fans are eager to get out of this A Boogie drought, especially when recalling how polished and impressive his 2020 album Artist 2.0 and its subsequent deluxe was. As anticipation grows even stronger considering the album’s delay, it’s still relieving to hear that he’s back in his bag with his “bros” like Roddy and Tory.
