I also support and notice every single fan I can, and don’t leave anyone behind, like others do. Many artists that gain popularity are not from Ohio, but I am proud to come from here.
HHW: Are there any artists in the present day or before you that musically inspire you? If so, who and why?

HHW: What motivates you in and out of the booth?
Hudak: Motivation comes from my mindset. I can’t rely on others to make me want to do something, I have to see people who have already succeeded and follow what they do. I do my best to follow the footsteps of those who have done what I want to do.
HHW: What are three things about you that would shock the public?

HHW: How do you balance your career with your home life? Family?
Hudak: I’m currently still in school so it can be hard. I will choose recording and making new music over school work. I go alone during my career times and have to isolate myself from others so I can do the best in life with music.
HHW: What’s next for you? What should we be on the lookout for?
Hudak: I am releasing a new song called “Everyday” which is featuring a very popular artist. It is guaranteed to be something the hiphop community will enjoy, and has a very relatable mood.
