Hanging his hat on reality rap – OfficialHardBodyMusic

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 .

[MUSIC] The Ghetto Nerd Drops Latest EP #ParentHood Project

Born and raised in the inner city of Detroit, MI the eastside to be exact, the Ghetto Nerd is an aspiring contributor to the Hip Hop culture. Releasing his debut under the moniker Jezt Bryan (AKA Red Eyez) Ghetto Nerd began to expand his brand circa 2003 becoming the first rap artist to perform for troops serving their country Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.   In recent times he has released quality music focusing on his new project, Parenthood The EP featuring a variety of songs produced from the likes of Brandon Fletcher, Quentin Dennard, Smerf Beats, and more.    The #Parent|HOOD” EP is a body of work that is sure to find an audience amongst everyday parents (and people in general who can relate to family life). Featuring songs with carefree titles such as “Baby Using the Bathroom,” everyone can relate to some aspect of the album.  The idea for this EP came from Randall wanting to find a way to express himself musically again after years on hiatus from the music business. Not wanting to present the same type of content he had in the past, he found new inspiration in his everyday life as a father and family man.  Check out the track-list below and streaming link.
