Who Is TheBoos247?
I am James “TheBoos” Canteen, Jr. I was born and raised in the inner cities of Georgetown, SC and Bronx, New York. Starting from breakdancing and rapping to DJing, I’ve left my mark on the urban hip-hop culture scene. From there I’ve created Boosta Sports Apparel — BOOSTA meaning Buying Our Own Styles Transcends Awareness — as a way to raise the consciousness of the African American community about economic self-empowerment while contributing to the hip-hop culture. As a serial entrepreneur, I later created the brands ShoppingWithTheBoos, Happy Huggs, and Big Boos Thee Invisible Man, (the musical artist), all which merged into TheBoos247.
I am now adding urban fiction writer to my accomplishments. Drawing from my experience of living in the inner-city, I write to share my knowledge and wisdom with the masses.
