A Conversation With Hunnit Andretti

Published

on

Hunnit Andretti’s deep voice pierces his fans who’ve grown accustomed to his thick-fisted style of muddy cups, big guns, and being aware of your surroundings in the streets. The rapper, out of Detroit, has the skill to take it to the next level. He’s taken the time to talk to 4ShoMag about his upbringing and what he has planned for the future in our exclusive interview.

Check it out below.

Who is Hunnit Andretti?

Hunnit Andretti is a producer, songwriter, and artist out of the Eastside of Detroit. 

How did you get into the rap scene?

Music was always a thing for me. I jumped into the rap scene in 2010. I always rapped, but I never focused on music in itself because my mind was more in the streets. However, in 2010, I redirected my energy and focused on music for the first time.

Who would you say has inspired you?

I wouldn’t say one single person does. I’m inspired by moments whether it’s my own or someone outside of myself. I guess you can say I’m inspired by life more than any individual. Although some accomplishments from certain individuals inspired me.

How has being from Detroit crafted your approach to music?

The simplest way to put it is art imitates life. I try to paint a picture of my life and how I see things coming up on the Eastside of Detroit. A lot will give you the rough ins and outs but it’s more to it than that in my eyes. I experienced the highs and lows of Detroit so I apply that balance to my approach in music.

What was the process like recording “SOS?”

It was actually a chill process. Thing is the beat was done months ahead of the song, me and Juan tried to put another artist on the beat but it just didn’t hit Juan like that. One day he hit me and said, “You might as well do it.” We locked in that night, just me and him, and recorded the song. I think it was his first time engineering too.

What are you looking to accomplish in 2020?

Just keep building! Keeping building as far as my music and fan base. Keep building as a man. Naturally, it all comes with hard work and doing good business. My goal is to stick to it and let everything sort itself out. Last year was a good year I dropped my first project Spring/Summer Collection August 2019 that alone showed me I can be a big as I want as long as I remain consistent, humble and work hard.

DUSTY LOCANE & 3Kizzy Drop ‘Em Like Flies on “Demise”

Published

on

By

With his stone cold swagger and rumbling rasp, DUSTY LOCANE has plenty of bite to back up his bark. Connecting with 3Kizzy, a suvy from DUSTY’s home neighborhood, the Canarsie capo keeps a steel surprise for anyone wishing to see his “DEMISE” in his new video single. Kicked off by 3Kizzy, who appeared on DUSTY’s 2021 debut album, UNTAMED, the track is nothing short of a workout, with the duo daring listeners to keep up as they ring off their tough talk: “Know that we roll like the task force/Don’t give a f*ck ‘bout Illuminati, I got demons I ain’t ask for.”

Directed by MIDAS, the video for “DEMISE” feels like GTA meets Friday the 13th, as Kizzy and DUSTY fort up in an eerily neglected cabin in the woods. With its newspaper-lined walls draped in yellow tape, the structure evokes a different strain of horror. The house is haunted, but by its occupants, and any opp bold enough to come knocking is bound to get shook.

“DEMISE” arrives on the heels of “ROLLIN N CONTROLLIN Pt. 3 (BEEN ROLLIN)” (1.6 million views since its late July release), DUSTY’s first single since his debut album, UNTAMED, which capped off a massive 2021 for the 23-year-old artist. In December, DUSTY joined the exclusive ranks of artists like Olivia RodrigoCoi LerayPooh Shiesty, and many more, as a member of the #RIAAClassOf2021 after receiving his first GOLD certification this year with his debut single, “ROLLIN N CONTROLLIN FREESTYLE,” which racked up over 200 million combined streams. The EMPIRE artist struck gold again with “Rolando (Caught In The Rain)” (86 million Spotify streams) and  “ROLLIN N CONTROLLIN PT. 2 (PICTURE ME),” which generated well over 131k video creations on TikTok

Stay tuned for much more music from the Canarsie native as summer rolls on.

The Homies Hit The Beach and the Rooftop in the “Thirsty” Video

Published

By

Masters of the DIY grind, Louisville rap crew The Homies know how to have a good time. Today, the 4-man collective comprised of Ace Pro, 2forwOyNE, Shlobb, and Quiiso share the new video for “Thirsty.” Produced by group member 2forwOyNE, “Thirsty” combines elements of two late ’00s rap cuts–using a sped-up sample of Drake’s “Houstatlantavegas” and vocals of Missy Elliott’s “Ching-A-Ling”–into a cohesive and incredibly catchy whole. Directed by Ace Pro, the video has a breezy summer vibe, as The Homies play beach volleyball with a group of fine ladies. The follow-up to “Shake,” which arrived with a Hype Williams-esque video, “Thirsty” is a highlight from It’s A Lot Going On, The Homies’ next album, and it arrives shortly after they hosted celebrities like Jack Harlow, Cole Bennett, Master P, and many more for their annual Celebrity Kickball Tournament in Louisville.

The perfect recipe to cool down the dog days of summer, It’s A Lot Going On compiles 14 brand new tracks into a sleek and boisterous package. Ping-ponging from hard-hitting trap on tracks like opener “Out Here” and the funky “Had To,” to effervescent rhythmic anthems like “Goat Mami” and “Trouble,” the album is buoyed by the chemistry of the four artists. Marked by playful lyricism and easygoing melodies, It’s A Lot Going On percolates with creative energy and signals even bigger things ahead for the Derby City natives. With appearances from MarzzJace, and Australian artist Mason Dane, who The Homies met on a recent sojourn Down Under, It’s A Lot Going On arrives on August 19th.

The “Thirsty” video arrives shortly after The Homies announced that they’ll be joining their Private Garden co-founder Jack Harlow on his “Come Home The Kids Miss You Tour” this fall. Also featuring support from the City Girls, the 26-date tour gives Ace Pro, 2forwOyNE, Shlobb, and Quiiso the chance to show off their performance chops in front of arena-sized audiences. The tour kicks off on September 5th in Cincinnati, just a few miles up the road from The Homies’ hometown. Tickets are available now.

With much more music on deck and an unshakeable passion for their craft, The Homies are ready to follow in the footsteps of their friend Jack Harlow from the Louisville underground to the rap mainstream. Sit back, and watch their rise.
