24 Apr THE GIVE BACK

HEY Y’ALL!!!!  HERE IS MY EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH MR. HUNGREEBOY HIMSELF. THE MAN BEHIND THE GREATEST PARTIES TO HIT SOUTH CAROLINA!!!!!! HOPE YOU ALL ENJOY!!!!!

FIERCE: WHO IS HUNGREEBOY

HUNGREEBOY: UM, I DON’T KNOW. MOST PEOPLE SEE HUNGREEBOY THEY NEVER GET TO SEE GRAYLON. HUNGREEBOY IS MY ALTER EGO HE’S THE PERSON THAT YOU SEE AT THE PARTIES.

FIERCE: WHEN DID YOU FIRST REALIZE THAT YOU WANTED TO PROMOTE PARTIES?

HUNGREEBOY: WHEN I WAS BROKE BACK IN 2007 WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE AND I DID NOT HAVE ANY MONEY AT ALL AND WE WERE EATING PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY WITH NO BREAD. WE DIDN’T HAVE THAT MUCH MONEY AND OUR FOOD STAMPS HAD STOPPED, AND WE WERE SITTING AT THE TABLE EATING PB&J WITH NO BREAD,  AND I WAS ALREADY THROWING LITTLE HOUSE PARTIES AND MY COUSIN WAS SAYING “MAN YOU HAVE TO BE SERIOUS ABOUT THIS” AND HE ASKED ME HOW I FEEL AND I WAS LIKE ” I ‘M HUNGRY BOY” AND THAT’S HOW I CAME UP WITH HUNGREEBOY.

FIERCE: WHAT TYPE OF FEEL DO YOU GO WITH FOR YOUR PARTIES?

HUNGREEBOY: UM, WHATEVER IS ORIGINAL. OUR BIGGEST THING IS BEING CREATIVE WITH OUR THEMES. THERE IS ALWAYS A DIFFERENT  ENERGY WITH IT COMES TO A HUNGREEBOY A PARTY. IT’S JUST DIFFERENT WHEN IT COMES TO A HUNGREEBOY PARTY. WE ALWAYS BASE OUR PARTY OFF OF A THEME. IT CREATES A DEMAND AND WE WANT TO GET THE BEST RESPONSE.

FIERCE: HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE OTHER PARTY PROMOTERS THAT ARE UPCOMING IN THE AREA?

HUNGREEBOY: UM, IT’S KIND OF LIKE A DREAM AND A NIGHTMARE. YOU ALWAYS LOVE COMPETITION BUT I THINK GREENVILLE IS TOO SMALL FOR 11 PROMOTERS. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH VENUES FOR PEOPLE AND WE ARE ALL OFFERING THE SAME THING. I FEEL THAT SOME PROMOTERS WOULD BE BETTER OFF PARTNERING UP. THERE IS SO MUCH MONEY TO GO AROUND. I LIKE THE COMPETITION BUT IF WE ALL COME TOGETHER AND HAVE SET THINGS I THINK WE CAN MAKE MORE MONEY INSTEAD OF DOING IT ON OUR OWN. EVERY WHERE WE GO IT IS THE SAME THING THERE IS NO VARIETY. THAT’S WHY I HAVE NOT THROWN ANY  PARTIES THIS YEAR.

FIERCE: WHAT TYPE OF ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE THEM?

HUNGREEBOY: JUST COME TOGETHER AND QUIT HAVING EGOS. AT THE END OF THE DAY THE PEOPLE WILL GO WHERE THEY WANT TO GO. I AM NOT GOING TO THROW SALT ON SOMEONE  ELSES EVENT. GREENVILLE IS SO SMALL PEOPLE DON’T HAVE THE MENTALITY TO COME TOGETHER. UNTIL WE CAN OVERCOME THIS GREENVILLE WILL NOT BE SUCCESSFUL. THE MARKET IS OVER SATURATED.

FIERCE:  NOT ONLY DO YOU HAVE YOUR PROMOTION GROUP YOU NOW HOW HBEMG( HUNGREEBOY MUSIC GROUP). WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS WITH THIS BUSINESS VENTURE?

HUNGREEBOY: TO PUT THEM ON TO CREATE THAT DEMAND FOR SC ARTIST JUST LIKE YOU DEMAND TO HEAR SOMEONE ELSE IN THE CLUB. THERE IS NO “I” IN TEAM WE NEED EVERYBODY TO PARTICIPATE. I CAN PROMOTE AS MUCH AS I CAN AND I CAN PLACE IT IN THE DJ HAND  BUT WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO  WITH IT? ARE YOU GOING TO PLAY IT? A LOT OF THE DJ’S THAT SAY THAT THEY PROMOTE LOCAL ARTIST REALLY DON’T. WE REALLY JUST NEED TO ALL COME TOGETHER TO TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL. I THINK THAT WHAT HURTS US THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE IN GREENVILLE ARE SMALL MINDED.

FIERCE: WHAT ARTIST DO YOU HAVE ON HBEMG?

HUNGREEBOY: J. REED, T- KILLA

FIERCE:  WHAT DO YOU THINK THAT THEY CAN BRING TO THE TABLE THAT ME BE MISSING AS FAR AS THE MUSIC SCENE WITH SOUTH CAROLINA?

HUNGREEBOY: I THINK THAT REED’S VOICE AND HIS SWAG SEPARATES HIM THE MOST. HIS APPROACH TO CERTAIN TRACKS AND HIS REALITY IS DIFFRENT  FROM A LOT  OF THE RAPPERS AROUND HERE AS FAR AS BOTH OF THEM THEY BOTH HAVE A STORY TO TELL. T KILLA IS A STORY TELLER. HE ISN’T  RAPPING ABOUT WHAT I AM DOING AT NIGHT AND FEMALES, HE’S RAPPING ABOUT TRYING TO KEEP A JOB AND FLIPPING A DOLLAR. HE MAKES HIS OWN BEATS HE KNOWS HOW TO MIX HE IS A TOTAL PACKAGE. J REED IS MARKETABLE HE HAS THE PACKAGE.

FIERCE: WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON THE MUSIC SCENE IN SOUTH CAROLINA SINCE MUSIC PLAYS A BIG PART WITH YOUR PARTIES AND NOW OF COURSE HBEMG?

HUNGREEBOY: UM NO TEAM WORK. IT IS GREAT QUALITY MUSIC WE HAVE THE TALENT I JUST THINK WE DON NOT HAVE THE AVENUES NEEDED WE HAVE DETOURS. THE AVENUES NEEDED ARE CLOSED BECAUSE PEOPLE DO NOT SEE THE BIGGER PICTURE.

FIERCE: WITH SO MUCH THAT YOU DO, DO YOU EVER GET TIME TO RELAX AND IF SO WHAT DOES HUNGREEBOY DO IN HIS SPARE TIME?

HUNGREEBOY: I WORK WHEN I RELAX. I CAN BE HANGING WITH MY FRIENDS AND WE CAN BE TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING PERSONAL AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I WILL START TALKING ABOUT WORK .

FIERCE: WHERE DO YOU SEE HUNGREEBOY PROMOTIONS AND HUNGREEBOY MUSIC GROUP IN 5-10 YEARS?

HUNGREEBOY: I REALLY CANNOT ANSWER THAT RIGHT NOW BECAUSE I AM STILL LAYING OUT THE PLANS. I’M MEETING WITH PEOPLE THAT ARE SHOWING ME ANOTHER WAY OF LIFE SHOWING ME THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WEALTHY AND RICH SO YEAH RIGHT NOW I CAN’T ANSWER THAT.

FIERCE: IS THERE ANYTHING THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY TO THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN SUPPORTING YOU THROUGHOUT THE YEARS?

HUNGREEBOY: THANK YOU!!!!! THANK YOU FOR ALL THE SUPPORT OVER THE YEARS AND I HOPE THAT YOU CONTINUE TO ROCK WITH ME AND FOLLOW  ME ON TWITTER (LAUGHS)
