Track Of The Day 28/11 – C3 Boogie

'Be Like That'

C3 Boogie is going it his own way. The North London rapper stands apart from his peers, seeking out a sound he can truly call his own.

Still only 19 years old, the Kilburn riser caught attention with ‘Lean Out’ back in 2020, before following that anthem with ‘Turn It’ and his emphatic ‘Plus One’ freestyle. Tipped by legendary broadcaster DJ Target, C3 Boogie closes the year with his excellent, hi-octane single ‘Be Like That’.

Absorbing the head-long rush that defines Jersey sound, the rippling production glistens with promise, the muscular percussive tick underpinning his most emphatic vocal yet. Bars soar past, C3 Boogie spinning on the flow while making his technical virtuosity look almost effortless.

A real line in the sand, his undaunted ambition and a clear desire to buck the norm makes ‘Be Like That’ an anthem-in-waiting. A club sound that feels definitively UK-centric, he’s pilfered from the Jersey playbook to craft something utterly true to himself.
