With a musical passion that began at a young age using the art as a coping mechanism for a young man raised in a broken home; listening to and writing music became a form of therapy. Born with a stutter, HardBody had to learn how to balance having a speech impediment, with the need to express himself through lyrics. As his talent would take form in 2017 he was presented with the opportunity to join the independent label known as Forward Thinking Ent; since then he has released several singles, and 2 EP’s. Annually, in May, OfficialHardBodyMusic likes to shed light on mental health awareness month, using his social media profiles as a platform.
His most recent release “March 2nd” is something of a biographical sketch as Hardbody presents as vulnerable and honest about the trials and tribulations which have strengthened the man he is today. Transparent to say the least Hardbody navigates between the cockiness of a rapper and the hardships of fatherhood.
“If I had to describe March 2nd, I would say it is me emblazoned with a knowledge of self and in full story-telling mode. I touch on topics ranging growing up with parents who suffered a broken marriage, to the struggles of me being a single father attempting to co-parent after a bad break up.”
This past May 17th Hardbody released his latest project, Madness featuring another popular track, “More For Me.” Madness is available for streaming here .
