A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie contemplates how social media fueled his rise to fame in a new trailer for Netflix hip-hop docu-series, Rapture. “If it wasn’t for the Internet, I don’t know where I’d be,” he says.
In the clip, an interviewee analyzes how the 22-year-old rapper – and others of his generation – have wisely utilized websites like Soundcloud and Facebook to build their following. “These kids are smart,” he says, as images of skyrocketing “shares” and “likes” fill the screen.
