A “Bogey” is a term for a tightly wrapped cigarette, tobacco or clove, or can also refer to a blunt.  It is more of a generalized term used in Queens for any kind of tightly wrapped smoke.  The content is irrelevant. The term comes from the tight cigarettes that Humphrey Bogart used to smoke.

It’s referenced in Danny Brown’s song “30”:
