Sean Wayne Evans (born December 14, 1980 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) better known as Sean Boog is an emcee from Raleigh, North Carolina and one half of the rap duo, The Away Team.
Sean Boog got his start in music by making mix tapes with a high school friend after several years of writing short rhymes in elementary and middle school. His launching pad into the music industry came when he was later introduced to Khrysis by critically acclaimed producer 9th Wonder. It is alleged that 9th Wonder actually gave Sean Boog his moniker. The musical chemistry between Sean Boog and Khrysis lead to the formation of The Away Team. The group got its name from Phonte, one half of the group Little Brother. Later, the rapper was inducted into the Justus League rap collective in 2001 after making guest appearances on several mix tapes and albums of its members, such as the Grammy nominated group, The Foreign Exchange’s album Connected in 2004.
In 2005, the emcee released National Anthem, with group member producer Khrysis, on the independent record label 6Hole records. In 2007, he appeared on 9th Wonder’s album, The Dream Merchant, Vol. 2. The following month, he and Khrysis followed up with their long awaited sophomore effort Training Day in 2007. Most recently, the group released The Warm Up in May 2009, a collection of songs featuring fellow North Carolinian emcee Nervous Reck and Roc Nation artist J. Cole. The album was originally slated for release prior to Training Day being recorded.
In 2009, Sean Boog teamed up with DJ Babu, one third of the underground rap Dilated Peoples, to form Los Carolina. The move proved to increase his ever growing fan base. The two met while Sean Boog was on tour with Little Brother in 2007. In November 2009, the duo leaked the singles More Than Okay featuring Khrysis and Looks Easy to the internet. There is no word of when a full length album will be released.
