This Brooklyn-based artist is rapping for more than just herself.
Ms. Boogie is an upcoming rapper that says she’s creating a space within hip-hop for trans women.
“Being a trans woman I have no home or shelter in hip-hop,” Ms. Boogie tells PEOPLE. “I have been building a home with my bare hands for other folks like me because we do exist and if we’re not celebrated by the stream, then we have to celebrate ourselves.”
“Making music is an emotional outlet for me,” says Ms. Boogie. “People just so happened to relate to my emotions and now I’m a star to my supporters. A ghetto superstar to be exact.”
