I first started making music in college at Arizona State. I went to high school in Colorado, but really concentrated on Varsity Sports – Basketball and Track x Field. I became much more artsy in college by attending local radio shows, performances and mc battles.-At one of the events in Tempe, Arizona I met a supporter who’s parents lived in Vancouver, B.C. He encouraged me to meet with a hip-hop producer he knew in Canada - @StylustBeats.-So I took a leap of faith and traveled with my friend to Van City for Christmas break. The result was my first studio album, “Solo 101“. A highly underrated album with dope appearances by Canadian artists - @EmotionzMusic x @
CoryLeeMusic x @RickThreat.
The Wu-Tang Clan show was crazy in New Orleans. I almost didn’t believe the show promoter when he brought up the opportunity, ha!
The energy at Howlin Wolf was turned up with a couple thousand fans in the building. I was able to feed off the hype and put on a great show with my man @Underdogcentral.
We hung around for the Wu-Tang show after our performance and took notes on the legendary hip-hop group. Method Man was stage diving into the crowd, and The Rza was spraying champagne into audience. It was nuts!
5) What’s next for Harn SOLO?
I’ve been grinding in the South, traveling to Houston, New Orleans and Atlanta to perform. Just trying to build my fan base up in the Gulf Region.
I’ve also been expanding my musical talents to talk radio stations, appearing on 790 AM Houston Sports Talk and WTUL Radio in New Orleans.
6) Who are three artists or producers you would like to work with in the future?
I feel like my hip-hop style would go good with producer – The Alchemist. I’ve been following his career since the 90s when he first broke onto the scene with Dilated Peoples, Nas, Mobb Deep and Big Daddy Kane. Now years later Alchemist is still killing production with Curren$y, Action Bronson and Roc Marciano!
I would also be open to working with a couple younger artists like Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa. I feel those guys are at the forefront of new school hip-hop. My music with Lyriqs da Lyraciss on “The Grind” album is a perfect example of how younger cats can inspire you.
7) “Round Table” was my favorite joint from “Journey To The Sky”. What was yours?
Dope to hear you like “Round Table” from the new album. I wrote that song in my head for like a week straight while touring London this past Summer. I had an iPod full of music and walked around the city gaining inspiration daily.
“Round Table” was my way of addressing those who have doubted my career. When listening to the song you can even hear a bit of fire and angst behind my vocals.
My personal favorite from the album is the title track “Journey To The Sky” with @MoonManDoon. The instant @ProProsek crafted that beat in the lab it was crazy.
@MoonManDoon and I really wanted to bring melody to that song, so the combination of rap and singing on that joint never gets old to me. Big props to another Nola artist for helping me out with my latest project.
8) Any S/O or final words you want to say to the readers?
Peace to @_MBJR and InboxEight.com for staying in tune with my music. It’s been a couple years since I dropped “The Grind” with @DunnDealPR, and you guys have continued to show support!
