Highlight: Independent Artist Hunnid


"Hunnid is an award winning urban artist, songwriter, producer and engineer based out of Chicago IL. Hunnid likes to keep himself diverse as an artist - covering all types of genres with his unique sound, ranging from Hip-Hop, R&B and Rap all the way to pop and afro-beat. Hunnid was born and raised in the Southside of Chicago, which is a neighborhood known for it's poverty and crime. Because of this Hunnid is devoted to bringing light to the issues of his community and helping in any possible way. His music often references both the good and the bad of being raised in such an environment. However, his mission transcends music as Hunnid participates in any events that involves the progression of his community."

Where are you from? Now?

Born and raised in Chicago. Although, I am traveling quite a bit I still call Chicago home.

What do you feel has been your greatest accomplishments thus far?

I would say being nominated for Best Hip Pop artist in my hometown was a highlight for me. That truly showed that I can do it by myself. Chicago is also a hard market to break into in the hip hop scene, so being nominated in my hometown added that much more importance to it.

Who is an artist that you would love to work with?

August Alsina, Trey Songz and Chris Brown would all be dope to work with and blend well with my aggressive/passionate rapping.

Why do you feel it is important for your work to be heard/seen?

It's simply good art and good music. I represent a little bit of everybody - the underdog, the bully, the dream chaser, those who are struggling and those who have made it.

Who is one of your favorite artists? Past or present.

I got to go with Tupac.
