A Conversation With New York Creative Rodney Hazard

“The process is never linear.” Those were some true words spoken by the New York DJ, Producer and Art Director,…

“The process is never linear.” Those were some true words spoken by the New York DJ, Producer and Art Director, Rodney Hazard.

He’s been on the music scene for quite some time now and recently dropped a new album titled Saint or Savage. The album features several up and coming artists that had a chance to collaborate with the Producer. He spoke with AAHH and broke down the meaning behind the title.

“It’s about making less of a choice and having more action. Stepping into who you truly are and who you want to become, but with more redemption. Which one are you right now, Saint or Savage?”

The basis of the title is also the same mindset he used when he approached the artist on collaborating with him for this project. He only works with artists who are trying to make a difference and be their best self.

“When I decided which artist I would have on the album it was a natural process. I’ve mostly worked with them in the past as well. They all had versatility and were different. The process is never linear; creativity comes in all forms and I wanted to express that.” Hazard wanted this album to be something people never heard before, and you can be assured it’s definitely different!

While some people typically crave to become rappers and singers, its rare to hear that someone’s dream is to be a producer. So we asked Rodney Hazard what advice he would give other people who inspire to be in his shoes.

“It’s important to know that an artists work is never finished so just put your material out there! You must pay attention to the music but keep the people, your audience, as the main focus point.”

It’s clear that Rodney Hazard is making his way through the music industry and bringing new artists up with him. Names such as Young $yrup and True City are on the rise as well.

Young $yrup is also featured on Rodneys newest music video for his song “True Eyes” which is off of his album Saint or Savage. Check out the official music video, below!

 
I’m sure it won’t be long before the name Rodney Hazard becomes a household name. He’s full of knowledge, creativity and knows how important it is to put his audience first. He also lives by the famous saying “each one, teach one.” He believes that we all should strive to help each other, lead and do well!

Saint or Savage is available now on all digital platforms.

Miami rapper Pharaoh Hussein has seen it all and been through a lot. He’s refocused negative to positive, combining the compassion he has for life and music and creating art dedicated to those like him; a black sheep, outside of the box thinker. “I was rapping as a hobby at age 11, but began to take it seriously around 17,” he reveals to AAHH. “I was saving money and paying for studio time.”

“My sound is dark gloomy,” he explains when asked about his sound. “Picture Earl Sweatshirt and MF DOOM with a little bit of trap infused.

The indie rapper is currently working on a project called Lightyears, which has been in production for almost a year. “It’s finally done,” he says proudly. “It’s dealing with a light vs.dark concept, which I think everyone can relate with; having battles with a darker side and mental health has become problematic in the world. I just wanted to address certain issues creatively and still be engaging and entertaining.”

He’s quick to state that his career goal is to run a label. “I know I could to do that, but I want to do anything that involves music … be involved in soundtracks, commercial jingles; you name it.

Next up for the emcee is the upcoming August release of Lightyears. “I’m [also] dropping the video to the first single “Skeletons” real soon … right now I’m putting everything behind this project, ” he says.
