Here is all there is to know about him.
Biography (Age, Wiki)
Even though he is most popular with his stage name (A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie), or as A Boogie, it was as Julius Dubose that the rapper was born on December 6, 1995, in Highbridge, New York City. It was there that he was brought up, and that became significant in his career as his neighborhood was a place where everyone was either rapping or listening to rap songs.
For his education, the young rapper attended the DeWitt Clinton High School, and once he was done, he decided not to further his education rather, he opted to develop his musical talent.
From then on, he lived between Florida and New York because his parents were trying to get him out of the troubles that he was constantly getting into. At a point, he was even arrested for possession of marijuana.
What has brought fame to him is his musical career that began with a single, Temporary. That did not take him anywhere, making him get back to some more practice before later releasing it again. His career was fully launched in 2016 when he released his first mixtape titled Artist.
His first studio Album, The Bigger Artist was released in 2017. The album further pushed him to the mainstream. It peaked 10 in the Canadian billboard, 9 on New Zealand Heatseeker Albums, 4 on US Billboard 200, and 1 on US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. His second album The International Artist was released in 2018.
A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s Girlfriend and Daughter
Relationship wise, the rapper has a very interesting story. He revealed that before now, he was in a relationship with a lady whom he had loved, but things didn’t go smoothly as she became pregnant for another man only to make the young rapper believe it was his. Even though he revealed that it left him pained, it didn’t go without serving among the inspirations for his first mixtape which had songs like “Still Thinking About You” and “D.T.B” (which means don’t trust bitches).
The next woman that he would go on to date is Instagram model, Ella Bands. Bands whose real name is Ella Rodriguez and the rapper started dating in 2016. She was born on January 23, 1999, in New York.

Her relationship with A Boogie fell apart in 2016 when it was reported that she caught him cheating on her. At almost the same time, she took to her social media to make a video dissing him and telling him that she was already over him. Interestingly enough, before too long the two were back together and they seemed to be stronger. Unfortunately, in 2017, he was called out again for allegedly cheating on her, with a repeat of the cheating allegation in 2018. This time around, Ella Bands came out and stated that the relationship was over and she was not going back to Boogie again. It was after this that her Instagram account was deactivated.
