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.

J Stalin Checks Off His “To Do List” in New Video

Published

By

A legend of the Bay Area known for his commitment both to his craft and his West Oakland community, J. Stalin is a perfect example of the region’s hustler spirit. Taking a beat from the gritty rawness of his mob music sound to focus on some extra-marital extra-curriculars, Stalin shares his seductive new video for “To Do List,” the June Poole-assisted highlight from his recent Prenuptial Agreement 2 album. Backed by an airy synth instrumental and anchored by June Poole’s seductively saturated R&B hook, “To Do List” finds Stalin taking full advantage of his departure from the more hard-nosed themes of the streets to let his freak flag fly: “She gon’ bring the freak out tonight, cause it’s a full moon/I be going crazy in that thing like a baboon.”

The video for “To Do List,” which arrives shortly after the clip for project highlight, “Who U Talkin 2 (ft. June),” finds Stalin cruising in a slick white convertible as visions of a scantily-clad baddie filling out her titular to-do list in a notebook bounce around his head. As he hopes and prays that she has his name written there, Stalin daydreams about a to-do list of his own as the video progresses, until she ultimately checks him off. 

Returning to the 2010 breakout project that made him a regional star and creating a 17-track document aimed to bring back the mob era, Prenuptial Agreement 2 is a showcase for Stalin’s raspy vocals, brutally honest lyrics, and peerless ability to navigate mob instrumentals. Moving from love songs to hustlers’ anthems and back with effortless ease, the album features production from OG Mob architects like The MekanixClayton Williams, and Mike Made The 808s, plus younger beatmakers like Juneonnabeat. Like the Pitchfork-acclaimed original, which brought guest spots from the likes of E-40 and The Jacka, Prenuptial Agreement brings an eclectic cast of characters, from fellow Oaklanders like Philthy Rich22nd Jim, and Jane Handcock standing up for the 357, and street heroes from other cities, like Florida’s Jackboy and Stockton’s EBK Young Joc, who sound right at home.

Loyal to the grind and his family, J. Stalin is building a legacy for himself and the Oakland scene he hails from. With Prenuptial Agreement 2, the proudly independent artist cements his rightful place in Bay Area history.
