Peers view him as a workhorse, while the competition sees him as the enemy. OfficialHardBodyMusic is the most consistent artist Forward Thinking ENT boasts. Straight out of Central Islip, NY; he is the self-proclaimed Realest Rapper in the World.
His passion for music began at a young age. Growing up in a broken home, listening to and writing music became a form of therapy for him. Born with a stutter, HardBody had to learn how to balance having a speech impediment, with the need to express himself through lyrics.
In 2017 he joined the independent label, Forward Thinking ENT, and since then, has released several singles along with 2 EP’s.
One of those EP’s, Madness, is a concept album covering many topics pertaining to mental health issues. These 6 songs feel like a short journey into a land where mistrust and suspicion reign supreme. We voyeuristically listen to a haunted HardBody express every negative emotion a tormented man could possible feel. There’s a certain finesse required to express low self esteem and confidence simultaneously, but Madness makes it appear effortless. Annually, in May, HardBody likes to shed a light on mental health awareness month, using his social media profiles as a platform.
HardBody is also known to thrive off attention, and craves blood with every punchline he spits. However, don’t be fooled by demeanor and etiquette. HardBody is fully capable of flexing on melodic records with catchy hooks and autotune, as shown with Bag Chasers Worldwide.
Most artist would take offense to being the center of attention regarding rumors & gossip, but in this role, HardBody thrives. He has proved time and time again that he is deserving of the spotlight and can handle the pressure. What’s next for this artist you ask? You’re going to just have to stay tuned and find out.
