If there’s anyone who knows how to set the mood, it’s LA based on-the-rise artist, HulkSicko!
HulkSicko’s unique and versatile sound along with flowy beats have been gaining the curiosity of new listeners in his new home in LA as it sets the mood with its catchy vibes.
Originally from New York, the “Snapchat” rapper is here to share a different sound that sets him apart from the rest. It’s like East Coast meets West Coast with a little cultural inspiration infused right into it. HulkSicko! describes his sound as “melodic and uptempo, which I think is dictated by the beats I choose. In terms of lyrics they can go right or left depending on how I’m feeling, and where I’m at. I like to tell people about parts of my life even if they can’t relate to it, cause the real gon relate. Those are the types of fans I want around my music.”
The music he makes contains hints of both Asian and Euro-inspired notes that make him a unique artist that can’t be compared to. The reason why it has a genuine catchy-ness is due to the fact that what Sicko spits is nothing but realness. The creative knows exactly how to add his real emotions and puts his all into the track to create something you can literally vibe out to. Being able to put his mood into a track is a mechanism he’s used to deal with his own emotions. “ I chose music because it allowed me to say stuff.I didn’t necessarily know how to voice because I didn’t have people to talk to about it. Same way when I was young and angry, I would listen to music to help get me out of certain moods. It ain’t always work and sometimes the lyrics in the songs made it worse but that’s how I knew music was impactful.”
When HulkSicko! began his journey as an artist, listeners assumed he was in a different country. Having a strong appreciation of Chinese culture, the “Siamese Twins” lyricist has always wanted to pursue a music career in China, near Shenzhen – a city he refers to as “The Miami of China”. He states that he would like to take that off his bucket list. “I was heavily pushing the idea that I wanted to live in China and make music there and a lot of people who didn’t understand music gravitated towards it because it was something they had never seen before. A lot of my early fans thought I used to live in China because of the fact that I spoke so well.”
The up and coming vibe star is now on track to creating a name for himself -humbly- in LA using both his past and current experiences to create more music. Not limited to where he’s from in the Bronx, New York but HulkSicko has already touched others around the world. “ A lot of people from my hood and school were showing me love. But I still didn’t think anything of it. It wasn’t until I received a DM from someone in Germany saying they cried to my song the night of there mother’s funeral that I knew I might have a gift.If I could make this random girl in Germany feel this way, I knew I could get the rest of the world to feel me the same way. Once you see it’s bigger than you gotta go harder.”
