Chicago Underground Hip Hop Artist HARI is Handcrafting his Music Career

HARI

We recently met up with Hip Hop artist HARI for an interview, and he had a lot to say about the industry.

The Chicago-based underground hip-hop artist who goes by the name of HARI has been surrounded by music since he was a young child. He knew he was destined to make a name for himself since he started making music. For HARI, he is encouraging his audiences to listen and become better people overall and gradually become the best version of themself. His new album, The Art of Poetry, is currently in the works and set for release this summer. Music is everything to HARI as it represents his emotions, dreams, and greatest aspirations.

  1. Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

HARI: Music & poetry has always been something I’ve loved since I was a kid, It played a significant role in what I do now. I would just get to writing poetry and I wouldn’t realize it, rhyming in my head but I always had a speech problem that made me not want to speak.

 

  1. Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started this career?

HARI: My most interesting story would have to be when a label was trying to sign me and told me details over the phone but the contract said something completely different I just laughed and threw it away.

 

  1. Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you first started? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?

HARI: My breathing, when I first started rapping I would always try to rap my whole verse in one breath! Big mistake obviously and one I learn quickly.

 

  1. What are some of the most interesting or exciting projects you are working on now?

HARI: My next project “FREE” is my main focus right now and I won’t hesitate when it’s ready it will be announced and dropped I got so many fans over the past years that I can’t stop now.

 

  1. Who are some of the most interesting people you have interacted with? What was that like? Do you have any stories?

  1. You have been blessed with success in a career path that can be challenging. Do you have any words of advice for others who may want to embark on this career path, but seem daunted by the prospect of failure? 

HARI: My word of advice is. Invest in yourself and make time to be able to do what you want! These jobs don’t want to do anything but hold you down until you a certain age. You take the checks and start building something of your own then you can eventually leave and pursue your own dreams.

 

  1. Can you share with our readers any self-care routines, practices, or treatments that you do to help your body, mind, or heart to thrive? Kindly share a story or an example for each.

HARI: I always clear my mind before leaving the house things change and people do too and some people can’t handle that so I would say clearing out your head, deep breathing if you ever feel like you need to hurt somebody or yourself just count to 100 calmly and a suicide hotline is also helpful but people underestimate therapy which I think a lot of people don’t realize they need including myself but I’ve gotten it because I know I do for my own reasons.

 

  1. What are your “5 things I wish someone told me when I first started” and why? Please share a story or example for each.

HARI: 5 things I wish someone had told me…

  3. I think that’s about it.

 

  1. Can you please give us your favorite  “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share how that was relevant to you in your life? 

HARI:  “Don’t stress about things you can’t control” that’s something I’ve learned to do because I’ve been in situations where I really could not do anything about it but overthink and stress about it so that really helped me.

 

  1. None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful for who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story about that?

HARI: I do have some guys in my circle I definitely can’t do it without and their support the whole BOG and my family.

 

  1. You are a person of enormous influence. If you could start a movement that would bring the most amount of good to the most amount of people, what would that be? You never know what your idea can trigger. 🙂

HARI: With my influence. I want people to be more honest with each other and bring together a group of people who are divided in this world with the music I hope to actually get a chance to change the world for the better but those details are for another time.

 

  1. We are blessed that some of the biggest names in Business, VC funding, Sports, and Entertainment read this column. Is there a person in the world, or in the US with whom you would love to have a private breakfast or lunch, and why? He or she might see this. 🙂

Everything You Need To Know About Hate Jaxxx, A Fast Rising Hip-Hop Star

Hate Jaxxx

Listening to great music is timeless. No matter when it was made or when you hear it, you know you are hearing something special. That type of music is supreme and must come from a supreme talent who respects the craft. That level of talent and class is what you get from Hate Jaxxx a fast rising upcoming artist from Dominican Republic.

Hate Jaxxx is a multi-talented hip-hop artist, songwriter and rapper who has taken all the time he needs to learn all that he can about his craft and where it will take him to in the future.‌ He is here to bring some passionate rap back to the music industry. He primarily creates music that is similar to that of artists such as Ian Dior and Juice WRLD. Hate Jaxxx has made tremendous steps toward his mainstream goals, independently releasing all his songs since his first release in 2021.

Check out his songs on Spotify below:

Hi there, welcome to Honk Magazine. Thank you for taking out time to respond to us. To kick things off, Can you tell our readers about what really inspired you to write music? 

Hate Jaxxx – I always had a passion for poetry and writing. Before my mom passed I would always read her my poems, quotes and writings. In December of 2020, I found out my girlfriend of 3 years had cheated on me so I fell into a dark depression phase. A month later in January of 2021, my mom passed away and then my sister ended up passing a few months after that. 2021 was the worst year I’ve ever experienced EVER. The depression, the addiction to pills, feeling like I didn’t even know who I was anymore; that’s what fueled me to start taking my music more seriously.

When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?

Hate Jaxxx – I released my first song titled, “Drugs” and it started blowing up in many tik-tok videos. Over 1,000 people used the audio in a matter of a month. That’s when I knew I could take this even more seriously.

Tell us what is so unique about you and your music?

Hate Jaxxx – I like to talk about a lot of MY OWN life experiences and turn my pain into writings and then lyrics.

Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that? 

Hate Jaxxx – One incident in particular, I released a song with the wrong title and a completely different song. It only came to my attention when someone said the album cover didn’t match the song. Since I’m a more independent artist with no management, I look over each release 3-4 times before submitting it to stores.

Can you tell us about your latest releases and what inspired you to create them?

Hate Jaxxx – L2ME – Ft. 3than was inspired by my ex-girlfriend. If you listen to the lyrics closely you can understand what the relationship was like.

Can you give us a brief insight about your upcoming projects? 

Hate Jaxxx – Those are secrets 🙂

 

What do you wish you were told when you first started making music that you think would help artists just starting out? 

Hate Jaxxx – Don’t spend money on silly campaigns. Find a specific audience and work with people you know who can help you grow your fan base. Luckily for me I received an opportunity and I took it.

 

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

Hate Jaxxx – Stay consistent. I have over 50+ unreleased songs at the moment. Since I am an independent artist I release songs slower than most artists but I will always have a new project in mind. Stay consistent and keep a positive mindset.

 

What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?

Hate Jaxxx – Personally, besides writing, I love to paint, draw and cook.
