MuzicNotez: What motivated you to start creating music? What age did you begin?
- Hellagreeno: Thanks for the interview, much appreciated. I began making music in my late 20’s but my motivation started young. My brother used to buy Rap tapes from Sam Goody. Some of them were singles with a instrumental on the B side, that’s where I learned to freestyle and develop my craft and love for making music.
MuzicNotez: Who were your musical influences, idols, or bands growing up that have helped mold you into the musician you are today? Or helped mold the music that you create?
- Hellagreeno: Being from the Mid-West we were raised on a lot of different sounds and cadences.
We played and adapted to East Coast, West Coast and Down South music. Z-RO, Boosie, UGK, Outkast , Nas, 2Pac, Biggie, T.I, Scarface, Noreaga, Big Pun and The Lox were big influences and help mold Me into the Artist I am today.
MuzicNotez: What’s the ultimate goal you want your music to achieve, or for you to achieve in your career as a musician? Any particular message you wish to send?
- Hellagreeno: I just want my underdog story to be told and heard. My whole catalog of music which is 1 Album, 17 Mixtapes, 2 Ep’s and a host of Singles and collabs is one big Autobiography. I try to motivate and speak honestly about my trials and tribulations. My message to the world is any is possible.

- Hellagreeno: It’s called Worrying Won’t Do Us No Good. It’s motivation music! That pick Me up music! Keep your head up type of vibes! I wake up to this Ep every morning! I just hope my story and past experiences helps someone going through their struggles.
