Hunnid – Lonely At The Top (Feat Streetz) [Interview]

  • Describe your sound in three words

I would say passionate, honest and with some of my new stuff vulnerable.

  • “Lonely at the top” is an emotional song indeed. Tell us a few things about it.

“Lonely at the Top” is a mantra for the determined.  This song comes from a vulnerable place for me.  The song was written and recorded with the featured artist Streetz years ago.  Along with many many other songs, this track was left unfinished when Streetz was murdered in 2018.  The song was then posthumously produced and released by myself at the end of 2019 in his memory.  Although the tone of the song is sad, it is still powerful, uplifting and motivational.  The point is to carry on the legacy for him.  Even when you’re by yourself, it’s not always lonely at the top.  

  • You sampled an iconic song by the Beatles. Which are your major musical influences?

I take influence from all types of music.  I grew up listening to every kind of music you can think of – from Jazz to MoTown to 90’s hip hop/rap, to Pop Music to Rock and everything in between and think this has all influenced me, even if just for my deep love and respect for music.  If I were to pinpoint a specific artist that has had the most influence on me musically and as a person in general, I would say TuPac.  The last few years, I can say I don’t listen to alot of other people’s music.  I really focus on my personal creativity and my craft.  I will listen to beats and instrumentals and just create.  I want my music to be authentic and not have too much influence from others in order to maintain my artistry.  

  • Favourite rapper, lyricist and producer?

Honestly, I would say myself.  As an artist, if you’re not your own biggest fan, you cannot expect anyone else to be and maybe you shouldn’t be doing this.  I love what I create and am proud of every track I release.  I have my hand on every piece of the process of creating my music.  

  • Do you have an artist that you would describe as a hidden gem that we should know about?

Not to be redundant, but I think myself.  I believe my artistry and music is a hidden gem and the new stuff I’m creating is going to set the world on fire.

  • What was the best film you have watched during the quarantine?

 I recently watched The Banker and thought that was a great movie.  It had a very real and raw storyline and the acting was great.  I think it’s very inspirational and reminded me that even when you’re faced against the odds you have to rise to the occasion.   

  • Any future plans?

There’s too many future plans right now to try to list.  I would suggest the world be on the look out for what’s next from me.  The future is going to be epic for my brand.
