To compliment the release of the album, the artist releases the single, “Bussin” and its visual alongside the peppery track. HD4President brings the season in with a bang, flaunting his high end swag and brilliant ice game in the video. He boasts a mouth full of gold and gold dread locks that hang and sway as he speaks. With our team learning of HD’s strapping presence, of course HypeFresh sits down with the artist to get to know him a little better.
HD4President’s Persona and Artistry
HD4President rubs his hands together as he shares his vulnerability as a humble artist, sharing that sometimes he doesn’t know who he is. As most artists, this is common and a mark that the artist in all reality is actually dope as hell. Hailing from the inconsequential town of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, he explains his love for music. Since a child, the rapper illustrates his desire to be a rapper one day.
“Humble, hungry and eager to be more successful. Ambition.”
His riches transpires from his very own home as he chooses to record in his comfort zone rather than in a big time studio. The artist creates an inspirational space in his home base studio with posters of Lauryn Hill, Kobe, Prince, Lil Wayne and Tupac. He feels that he expands his creativity with them all watching over him as he does his thing. HD4President brags about not writing songs since 2008. When he goes to the studio, he does a few bars at a time, composing the track as he goes. HD4President explains that after hearing the beat, he is able to put words to the melodies. He states that sometimes some artists can go in on the beat doing twelve bars at a time. For HD4President, it’s faster and easier to feel it. Writing makes him think too hard, hindering his creativity.
