We took the time to sit down with Bobby and ask a few questions. Check it out below.
HHW: Where is Bobby Hendrixx from?
Bobby Hendrixx: I was born and raised in Southern Illinois right across the river from St. Louis, Missouri. I rep both because 618 is the area code I was raised in, but if you’re from that area you know just how close and how much of an influence St. Louis has on your life growing up. I love St. Louis and St. Clair County! Ya’ll gotta listen to “In The Lou” 618 – 314!!
HHW: What was it like growing up? Was music something that was accepted as a career path?
Bobby Hendrixx: Yeah, music has always been something accepted growing up, but as a career path, people kinda looked at you as it being a long shot. That’s why I have a lot of respect for the artists in the area who never gave up and continue to keep making music and pursuing that dream!!
HHW: You seem to have a gift for music. Can you talk to us about your pen, your craft and abilities?
Bobby Hendrixx: I’m not afraid to make a song on just about any beat haha! I just love music and even if people don’t think it’s in my “lane” I don’t care. You just have to let your feelings, emotions, and thoughts flow through ink.
HHW: Do you tend to freestyle or write?
Bobby Hendrixx: Both. Coming to LA and seeing how most music is made was a wake up, but it gave me a chance to be able to develop my own technique. It’s all about the mood!
HHW: Your latest single “Party N The Whip” is gaining some mass attention across plenty of media outlets as your song continues to grow. How does it feel to garner the attention that you are receiving?
Bobby Hendrixx: Shoot, I just wanna keep going haha! I’m super grateful for everyone who’s been banging the song!! We just getting started, and ayeee this trip gone be long and take a lot of different turns it’s a Party N The Whip (pun intended haha)
HHW: What was the creative process behind “Party N The Whip”?
Bobby Hendrixx: “Party N The Whip” is just like there’s a lot of places we party like houses, clubs, events, but aye on the way, you’re probably excited and turnt up to get there so shoot the party really starts in the whip!
Never encouraging drinking and driving tho!!! That’s why if you listen I’m talking about “the driver” and “chauffeur” so like never get behind the wheel if you’re intoxicated that’s not a party n the whip that’s just dumb!
