Explanation:
OK MK, this one is definitely lingo used by rappers (hip-hoppers?), or college students mostly in the States. I heard it used frequently there.

"My boo" means my loved one, my lover, my sweetheart, etc.
The person is probably referring to THE lover/sweetheart that is changing his life. See if the context fits. Does the person seem to be talking about someone special?

No formal references. Based mostly on my interaction with friends and the people I worked with in the States.
