Special Guest: Hastyle
What do you get when you mix the mean streets of Newark NJ, and a son (educated in the public school system) raised in a single parent home? Now imagine his only venting tools being a stage, and a microphone?
You get Hastyle....One of the illest MCs coming straight out of Brick City (Newark NJ). Don't believe it? Check him out in New Jersey's band (Uncle Al's) music videos "The Building" and "The Medley" on Youtube.com. If that's not enough to make you a believer, his resume alone speaks volumes.
From opening up for legends/greats such as Notorious BIG, Nas, Naughty By Nature, and Lauryn Hill to opening up for the likes of Jae Millz, Black Moon, and Method Man...Hastyle has definitely left his footprints in the concrete. His live hip hop/classic rock band "Uncle Al" walked away with TIA's (The Industry Alternative's) Breath of Fresh Air award, all while having songs in rotation on 97.5 FM Elite Radio, 1055heat.com, Streetz 106 FM, and StreetzRadio.com. He's graced stages at the infamous Club 88, The Black Music Expo, The Pipline, Industry Tuesdays (Philly), The Trash Bar, Whiskey Bar, Maxwell's, The Bitter End, Bar East, and The Kool Jazz Festival (in Newark) just to name a few. Along with working on projects such as Uncle Al's mix cd "The Uncle Al Experience", and his solo effort "Da Newark Riots", Hastyle has also dropped mix cd called Dirty Jerz (a meeting of the rhymez)...a compilation of some of the hottest signed & unsigned talent out of Jersey.
This classic mix cd has reached 1,100+ downloads within the first month of it's release date. Be sure to check out the title track "Dirty Jerz" feat. Doitall (of Lords Of The Underground), Sundance, and DJ Ran (the fastest hands in New Jersey). As if THAT isn't enough, now he's venturing off into acting. Check him out in his first of many roles as K (Killa) Caine, a blood thirsty gang leader who terrorizes his own neighborhood just for kicks in 973 Films movie "Under The Streetlight". If he doesn't get in the door one way, he'll definitely get in through another.
Hastyle figures with the life he's lived, and hardships he’s faced there is plenty for him to say to the world, if the world will only listen. He’s not looking for a break. He’s looking for an opportunity. An opportunity to tell his story. Just check out joints like Victim, The Building, Special, and The P.R.O.J.E.C.T.S to get a glimpse of the graphic picture he paints so well. And that’s not even ½ of his story. This is just the beginning. Hastyle says, “I’m going to tell my story with, or without a record deal”. And with that being said…………………Da Newark Riots (coming soon)..........
