BOON DOCUMENTED

During the early days of the YouTube phenomenon, Colorado-based musician, Solomon Vaughn, aka Boonie Mayfield, went viral by becoming one of the pioneers of online hip-hop beat production videos.  After years of toiling and losing interest in the format he helped popularize, Boonie decided to produce a series of hybrid documentary/reality show episodes, giving viewers a more in-depth and extensive look into his life and career as a full-time independent artist.   

Musician and youtube personality Boonie Mayfield, alter ego of Solomon Vaughn, decides to invest in a vintage Rhodes electric piano, but first must find a piano for sale in the state of Colorado.  Fellow rapper and childhood “play cousin,"  Jordan Craft, visits Boonie’s studio to collaborate on a song for their developing project called, “Audiopium."

While procrastinating on putting together a live beat showcase for an upcoming producer event, Boonie takes another long distance trip to a much more rural area to buy a vintage tape-machine he found on Craigslist.  Fellow producer and friend, Courtland Urbano (formerly known as Xperiment) visits the studio.

Boonie participates as a judge for a producer battle and performs his live beat showcase before visiting his lifelong friend and artist, Cynereo, to get his first tattoo.  After a short trip to Detroit for a radio interview, Boonie returns to the studio for an impromptu session with New York emcee, Che Grand and mutual friend, DJ Low Key.

Boonie and his close friends recap the infamous story of when his first studio was burglarized in 2010 after receiving the news of the perpetrator getting caught 2 years later.

Boonie reunites with friends and fellow musicians from his early YouTube era, including former roommate, Fat Trak and neo-soul collective, Classic Blue.

Boonie reluctantly fills out the Red Bull Music Academy application, invests in another vintage electric piano, and reconnects with Mr. J Medeiros and Stro Elliot of hip-hop group The Procussions.
