Featured artist: Hoodie. – The Philospher King
As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Hoodie. from Las Vegs to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…
Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Hoodie.! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
Hoodie.: I’ve been creating art through all mediums since I was a child, but I first started taking rap as a serious career around aged 13 after I wrote a song to sing to a girl I liked, and she told me she really liked the lyrics but I wasn’t good at singing.
R.A. The RuggedMan gave me The best advice I’ve ever gotten as an artist, he looked me dead in my eyes and told me “everybody is gonna fucking hate you, and you gotta learn to love it”
What about concerts? Do you play live?
Yes! I’m always out playing live shows in Las Vegas or out in San Diego with my label mate
Best punchline you ever wrote?
“Air it out for the media/ we to go bring the public in/ Brother in the resistance/ now you got republic kin”
