Watts Artist Lord Hauncho Interviews With HHW

HHW: Introduce yourself to our readers, let them know your name and where you’re from.

Lord Hauncho: My name is Kevin Day AKA THA PRINCE OF WATTS BKA  LORD HAUNCHO  I’m from Watts, CA. I GREW UP ON  107th and grape st SPECIFICALLY WHICH IS WHERE MY NEIGHBORHOOD WAS STARTED  AND APPROXIMATELY 3 to 4 blocks away from the Jordan downs which is still my section.

HHW: Your father Big Hauncho name rings bells across the county, coming up did that add any extra pressure on you?

Lord Hauncho: GROWING UP WAS INTERESTING ON 🍇 MY FATHER WHO’S NAME I CARRY TODAY IS LEGENDARY ACROSS COUNTRY BUT EVEN MORE SO IN COMPTON AND WATTS, SO IT CAME WITH A LOT OF PERKS, BUT ALSO A LOT OF HATRED.  I GOT MAJOR LOVE FROM THE OG’S THAT HE RAISED UP AND HELP GET MONEY  THEN I DEALT WITH MY GENERATION MAD AT THE FACT THAT MY FATHER WAS BIG HAUNCHO, SO I ALWAYS FELT THAT I HAD TO SOLIDIFY MY OWN REP. MY PARENTS DID WHAT THEY COULD TO KEEP ME AWAY FROM THAT GANGSTA LIFESTYLE, BUT MY FATHER HAD GOT LOCKED IP IN 1996 AND RECEIVED A 20 year SENTENCE. I REALLY FELT THAT I HAD TO KEEP HIS NAME ALIVE  NOT KNOWING THAT HIS NAME WOULD LIVE FOREVER I RAN THE STREETS STARTED HUSTLING KEEPING A GUN AND BANGING 🍇 ST MY MOTHER KEPT ME IN  FOOTBALL 🏈 WHICH I EXCELLED IN UP UNTIL I WAS 17. I FOUND MYSELF FIGHTING A CASE HOME INVASION, KIDNAP CASE,  AND WAS SENTENCED TO 13 YEARS SO I GUESS U CAN SAY I WAS UNDER SOME PRESSURE LOL.

HHW: What made you want to get in the music business?

Lord Hauncho: WELL I’VE  ALWAYS LOVED  MUSIC🎵AND I SEE AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE LEGIT AND HELP SPEAK TO THE INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE GOING THROUGH WHAT I WENT THROUGH. I DO IT FOR THEM YOUNG DUDES SITTING IN THEM DOPE SPOTS TRYING GET A MONEY BAG. I DO IT FOR THEM YOUNG DUDES SITTING IN THEM PRISON CELLS, DOING WHAT THEY GOTTA DO TO SURVIVE AND MAKE IT HOME TO THERE  FAMILIES SAFE I’M THE VOICE FOR THEM.

HHW: When did you know that it was actually going to be your career?

Lord Hauncho: I ALWAYS FELT THAT I WOULD BE A RAPPER, OR IN THE INDUSTRY BUT NOT UNTIL MY RELEASE FROM PRISON I REALLY KNEW THIS WAS GONNA BE MY CAREER. I OPENED A STUDIO WITH MY PARTNERS/PRODUCERS QTASTIC AND B.D. STARTED NETWORKING WITH OTHER ARTIST AND IT FEELS SO NATURAL THIS IS WHAT I WAS BORN TO DO 💯

HHW: If you could get advice from any artist in the industry, who would it be and why?

Lord Hauncho: THAT’S A TOUGH QUESTION BECAUSE I ADMIRE MANY ARTIST BUSINESS MOVES IN THE INDUSTRY BUT IF I HAD TO CHOOSE ONLY ONE TO GIVE ME ADVICE IT WOULD HAVE TO BE  JAY Z DUE TO THE FACT HES MADE A LOT OF MEN MILLIONAIRES AROUND HIM WHILE HE CONTINUED TO WORK AS AN ARTIST PLUS HE COMES FROM A BACKGROUND SIMILAR TO MINES I HAVE THE UTMOST RESPECT FOR THAT MAN SO I WOULD WANT TO HAVE A SIT DOWN WITH THAT GUY ONE DAY SOON 💯

HHW: What or who influences your music?

Lord Hauncho: FIRST AND FOREMOST MY FAMILY THEY’RE THE ONES I DO IT FOR ESPECIALLY MY SON AND MY SISTER KATRINA R.I.P. THEN THEY’RE HOMIES THAT ARE DOING LIFE IN THE SYSTEM THAT I WALKED THE YARDS WITH, THE YOUNG MEN THAT ARE HUSTLING TRYING TO TAKE CARE THEIR FAMILIES, THE STRUGGLE IN GENERAL. THAT’S WHY MY LABEL IS  CALLED “STILL STRUGGLIN ENT.” ARTIST LIKE YO GOTTI, JAY Z, E-40, AND GUCCI MANE HAVE SHOWN ME IF YOU STAY FOCUSED AND GRIND HARD YOU WILL BE SUCCESSFUL  ALSO I CANT FORGET THE GREAT MASTER P #salute.

HHW: Has anyone helped you or guided you in getting your foot in the industry?

Lord Hauncho: BEING REAL WITH YOU MY UNK OG CUICIDE FROM COMPTON, AND MY DAWG “X” From QUEENS.  OTHER THAN THAT NAW I JUST LEARN AS I GO.

HHW: What differentiates you from other artists?

Lord Hauncho: WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT IS I’M AUTHENTIC I RAP WHAT I LIVED I RAP ABOUT WHATS STILL GOING ON RIGHT NOW IN MY GHETTO. I DID 11 years 8 months  I NEVER SNITCHED I STILL SEND MY PEOPLES MONEY AND PICTURES I’M FIGHTING A CASE RIGHT NOW I HAVE MY ON LANE NOBODY ON THE WEST TALKING BOUT THE SHIT I’M TALKING BOUT. RIGHT NOW ON 🍇 I GIVE THE STREETS HOPE  JUST LIKE THE ARTIST I MENTIONED ABOVE GAVE ME HOPE. THESE DUDES FATHERS ARE LEGENDARY, BUT FOR BEING FAMOUS IN THE INDUSTRY MY FATHER IS A GANG LEGEND A KING PIN IN THE STREETS BIG DIFFERENCE BRO. THESE DUDES AIN’T NEVER SOLD DOPE ON THE BLOCC OR BUSS DOWN A 100 GRAMS IN A PRISON CELL. THIS REALLY MY LIFE, I’M A DIFFERENT BREED AND ON TOP OF THAT I’M FROM ONE OF THE MOST NOTORIOUS GANGS GRAPE STREETS WATTS.  THAT’S WHY I’M DIFFERENT  WE BANG THE PURPLE RAG EVEN MY CRIPPING DIFFERENT ON BABYLOC.

HHW: What do you hope to get out of your involvement in the music industry?

Lord Hauncho: HONESTLY ITS NOT WHAT I HOPE, I’M GOING TO GET A BIG MONEY BAG OUT THIS RAP GAME.  THAT WILL HELP ME  BUILD AN EMPIRE LIKE ROC NATION, AND MAKE THE STREETS WORLDWIDE ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WATTS BRING OUT SOME OF THE BEST ARTIST. I WANT ALL MY PEOPLE successful ON CRIP.  I WANT TO SEE US ALL WIN, I DO THIS FOR MY LOVE ONES GWAYNE, DREVISHISS, TWOSKEE, LIL HOGG, LIL SWERVE, DAYTONE SHARKE, FATTY, BIZZTURNMEUP, AND FREE LIL DUECES, LIL WHITE,S BIG GE-RYDA, YOUNG KDAY “X”  PHCC KJ MY AUNTIE B “BABY ROB HOGG “ LIL WOOD, AND ALL MY HUB N DUB SOULJAS. 

HHW: Finally a lot of our readers are incarcerated or just came home from prison.  What advice would you give them on how to turn their life around, get into music or any other businesses?

Lord Hauncho: MY ADVICE TO THE SOLID MEN THAT ARE LOCKED DOWN and FREE IS STAY STRONG MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY NEVER LET THE SYSTEM BREAK YOU I’M NOT GONNA TELL THEM TO SQUARE UP, BUT TO MOVE DIFFERENTLY AND BETTER THEMSELVES BY LEARNING FROM THEIR PAST MISTAKES. IF YOU’RE INTO THE MUSIC SCENE  LEARN IT THOROUGHLY, YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE AN ARTIST YOU CAN MANAGE, YOU CAN PRODUCE, FIND YOUR NICHE, BUT HONESTLY FIND WHAT YOUR TALENT IS. FIND WHAT YOU HAVE A PASSION FOR AND PURSUE YOUR DREAMS DOESN’T MATTER IF U HAVE TO START SMALL DO WHAT YOU GOTTA DO HOMIE. WE NEED OUR BLACK SOULJAS FREE AND TAKING CARE OF OUR YOUNG KING AND QUEENS THAT’S WHAT I PROMOTE MOST FATHERHOOD.
