We had the good fortune of connecting with Boonkey and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Boonkey, what’s the most important lesson your business/career has taught you?
Is to always stay dedicated don’t give up follow your dreams and have fun doing what you love

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Well first of all I like to think of my music as reality music,My music always has a subject to it a beginning and a end a title that I stay on topic with so I feel like I set my self apart from a lot of others because there is no more subject matter in music anymore it’s just catchy hook and then say what ever comes to mind that’s it. But no hate it’s music out here for everyone. And I’m most proud of everything I have accomplished through out the years of doing music because keeping my focus on music kept me out of a lot of trouble I’m a owner of my own home and I own multiple cars married , my kids live with me so I’m great. At the end of the day when it’s all said and done I would want the world to know I worked hard and stayed dedicated to what I loved I had ups and downs but I kept doing me and that was just living and staying out of trouble and everything else will fall in place be good to people have good energy and you will get good energy back

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well first my favorite spot to eat would be on the border got to have the nachos then maybe hit up apple bees for a few drinks hit the town ride through the city hit up just taste it bar b que and as far as later night I would maybe hit sandaga 813
