“I started doing music because I needed something to do while I was in the hospital. Music touched my soul during those hard times. People relate to music more and that helped me ease the pain.”

What made you change from becoming a Hip-Hop Artist to becoming a Hip-Hop Gospel Artist ?

“God led me to do Hip-Hop Gospel because I was promoting the devil. God snatched me back into reality during the corona virus. It was a wake up call, he told me to serve him and that’s what I did.”

Who are some people you look up to in the industry?

“I look up to Pop Smoke , Kirk Franklin, 6ix9ine , Lil Durk, and Chief Keef. Not because of what they stand for or what they rap about , but because their style and flow is unique. I cant help but to like them.”

Where do you see yourself in the next five years ?

“I see myself owning several business and helping my dads church continue to grow. I want to keep the legacy moving while being a gospel hip hop artist.”

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?
