Malliki Roberts, aka MalBoogy, is one of the hottest soulful artists in the Carolinas. He was born on September 15, 1996 in Raleigh, NC; to self taught musicians as his parents. At a young age he gravitated to the greats like Bob Marley, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Biggie Smalls, Lauryn Hill, Nas; and a lot more iconic artist. And because of the fact that he was so young; his mother noticed his ear for music, she started to call him Boogy; after the legend Lauryn Hill (L-Boogie). Around the age of 12 Mal’s father gave him his first real guitar and taught him the basics of it and then Malliki proceeded to teach himself the rest. Around the same time he discovered that he can sing/ rap and from there he knew that he wanted to be a musician/ artist for the rest of his life. In 2017 he moved to New Jersey to try to pursue his career but hit a bittersweet brick wall so in 2018 he moved back to NC and started to build himself as an artist. Through that journey he used his early influences to create a classic EP called “True Story.” Cause of True Story that made him come into the light that he always wanted to be in and the same people he was seeing do this in Raleigh while he was in Jersey, was now around him asking for features or a guitar samples or write for them. Now in 2019 leading to 2020 and beyond it’s only to the top for the young 23 year old and it’s definitely his goal to be the new voice of NC.
