Westside Boogie has finally put an end to his three-year drought. On Friday (June 17), the Shady Records prodigy released his sophomore studio album More Black Superheroes, lasting 37 minutes across 12 songs.
Along with both promotional singles “AIGHT” with Shelley FKA DRAM (April 22) and “Stuck” (May 6), the track list also includes features from Smino, Soulja Boy, Teezo Touchdown, Snoop Dogg and more. When speaking about the album in an Instagram caption, Boogie explained how the album is about empowering Black men and fathers to embrace their emotions and capabilities.
Boogie first introduced the album in April while celebrating National Superhero Day (April 28). For the holiday, the Compton native paid a visit to the Boys & Girls Club in Carson, California donning a superhero suit to play shoot some hoops and spend time with the children in the community.
The next day (April 29), he officially announced that his upcoming sophomore studio album would be titled More Black Superheroes. Referring to himself as “Superblood,” Boogie embodies a superhero for young black children, like he was at a time, to look up to.
While touching on the holiday and the concept surrounding the project in an Instagram post, WS Boogie discussed the strength it takes to endure the trials and tribulations of life, as he demonstrates his fortitude on this project.
More Black Superheroes aims to achieve the same amount of quality storytelling and lyricism as his studio debut Everythings for Sale (2019), and we now get to see if it lives up to the standard he set for himself.
