HCM Interviews Chicago Native and Rapper Tazzie H

HCM. How did you come by your stage name?
Tazzie H. In middle school was given the name Tazz referencing to the looney tunes character The Tasmanian Devil and it evolved to Tazzie Hitchman wanting the ‘H’ initial from big inspiration Jimi Hendrix which later became Tazzie H.

HCM. On your current/upcoming album… How did you come up with the concept for this project?
Tazzie H. The concept of my current album INTEGRATE was taking a bit of my personal life and creative mind space and bringing them together. A lot of my supporters know I have this thing for wolves and werewolves and the myths. I created a werewolf character to describe my uneasy reality of growing up witnessing death at a young age, having this anger from that and when I was younger not really knowing how to control that , which I would explain more in my upcoming comic book “Integrate The Comic”. In this project I really wanted to give my audience a little more of me and my story.

HCM. What impression would you like listeners to be left with after hearing your music?
Tazzie H. I want all my listeners to know that anything is possible and growth is amazing. Even though things may change and not always be the way you want it you can always make issues better no matter your background or the demons you carry. You can mean something to somebody way more then how you view yourself and if you believe in your better self stronger everyday, whatever you want is bound to come to you good and bad so be careful what you wish for.

HCM. What are your plans for the near future?
Tazzie H. Plans for the near future is reach more fans that would love my music try and perform at a huge festival and really interact with new supporters, I am working on a lot of different project at the moment as far as visuals and my comic book.

HCM. Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
Tazzie H. I honestly would like to thank my supporters anyone who has shouted me out any one I might have helped get through something with my music or gave hope to. They are the reason I go so hard and also my team around me that push me to be better and to beat the living shit out of the old me and give my authentic self. Shout out to anyone who has picked themselves up even when it was hard.
