Check out the new song from H.N.I.C. – The World Is A Ghetto
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
We came from different areas: Georgia, Florida, New Jersey and California. We all came to the same area because of of our day jobs. Three out of five were in the military and two out of five of us are related. We all like the same music and we respected where we all come from. Eventually we decided to put our talents and contrasting styles together to have a group like you never heard before and here we are today.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
Our newest single is “The World is a Ghetto.” The name is pretty much self-explanatory. We talk about things that happened in our neck of the woods and our experiences. No matter where you come from, there’s a hood, ghetto, whatever.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
The hardest challenge so far is scheduling recording sessions and shows/venues around five people. Besides music, making time for family and our own separate business ventures are time consuming. Realizing that music is what we really want to do helps us through it.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
Our biggest setback was finding a quality recording studio close by. After trial and error, recording in “garage studios” to get our feet wet, we found a good studio that is easy to work with and was well worth the time on the road.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Artists need to be careful of all the outside influences away from the group. Everybody and their mom claims to have the hookup at this place or knows somebody that can make you a star. Steer clear of all the empty promises and claims. Take everything with a grain of salt.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Keep your ego in check. Never have the notion that you know everything. There’s a lot of facets to this industry. Learn from others experiences and mistakes. Never be afraid to ask questions. Closed mouths don’t get fed.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
Our favorite way to promote music is through social media. Millions of people have access to Facebook, YouTube and twitter, and our Reverbnation app is connected to both of them. We are currently in the process of promoting our upcoming mixtapes that will be released this summer.
