Bo Boy 20 wants to be known as much more than the voice behind the number-one album and song in the country. The accolades are nice, he says, but the 20-year-old rapper would rather his legacy be defined more by community impact than charting singles. Bo Boy 20 says he’s spent his early rise trying to avoid the spotlight altogether. “I don’t really partake in the celebrity aspect of it all. I don’t go to parties, I don’t hang out, I don’t really talk to nobody. I don’t really consider myself a celebrity,” he explains. “When the world catches me outside, then it’s like, ‘Oh shit, it’s Bo Boy !’ I’m cool about it, as long as my personal space isn’t threatened. It’s funny, I’m not a celebrity, I guess I’m just known.
It’s not that Bo Boy’s uncomfortable with success; he’s just ambivalent about the dressings that accompany it. Bo Boy 20 is on a mission to prove himself to be more than a chart-topping success. He wants to be the voice of his generation, a Compton emblem like Kendrick and YG and Dre before him. “Fame won’t change me,” he says. “It’s a blessing to be somebody that people look up to and can connect to emotionally.”
