Dream a Mile High
While living in the intimidating big city of Los Angeles, Boonie Mayfield reminds himself to keep dreaming as big as he did prior to moving from his hometown of Colorado Springs and Denver, also known as the “Mile High City". The self-reflective "Dream a Mile High" touches on overcoming self-doubt and depression with self-assurance, affirmations and spirituality while in pursuit of one’s dreams.
The Wonder Years
Set in 1996-2003, “The Wonder Years” is an autobiographical account of Boonie Mayfield’s life growing up inspired by hip-hop music with dreams of becoming an influential recording artist himself. In three segments, Boonie recounts his experiences through junior high, high school and the brink of his 20's while referencing classic hip-hop releases that made an impact on him during those times.
Boonie Mayfield’s “Haterade” is a rambunctious satire based on negativity and criticism often directed at hip-hop artists that succeed beyond the limits of others’ expectations. In a stream of consciousness, Boonie pulls no punches as he imitates internet trolls, critics and nostalgic fans resisting change in the ever-evolving landscape of music.
The blues-driven sound was inspired by Delta Rae’s “Bottom of the River” and merged with the massive feel of big-beat hits like Kanye’s “Jesus Walks” and Jay-Z’s “99 Problems”.
