Straight outta Chicago, rapper and producer Hunnid brilliantly fuses hip-hop and afrobeat pop in his latest single “Buss That,” which just feels like a good time during hard times in our social and political landscape.
Inspired by Juvenile and Lil’ Wayne, especially with the song “Back That Ass Up” from the late ‘90s, Hunnid combines bouncy melodies and catchy lyrics in a fun track. “Buss That,” which was produced by Mantra, is just clever and witty in a very playful way. The rapper also shows his Chicago influences with sounds that reminds me of early 2000s Kanye West, who was raised in the Windy City too.
“I’m speaking for those people at the bottom without power or a voice, it’s bigger than me,” said Hunnid on his website. “Not many people can do what I do and be good at it but that’s not my goal with music. My goal is to bring power to the powerless through music, I actually have a message.”
