Artist Spotlight: Hystory

January 23, 2012 by skov // #hiphop #stl #hystory #2weeksnotice #papersnpipes

S: Tell us where you're from and who you are?

-H: They call me Hystory, and I'm from the southeast side of Chicago. I'm an up and coming rapper making a name for myself in St. Louis. I moved here when I was 12 years old and met Bo Dean shortly after, and we've been doing our thing ever since. I started HBN [Hustlaz By Nature] with Bo, Dange, Phantom, and L'z a couple years after that. These days I keep it solo, but I still fuck wit them all.

S: Who are some of your influences?

-H: I first got inspired when I saw Lil Wayne rapping at such a young age. So I'd definitely have to say him, Jay Z, Eminem, Big L and most importantly my Mother

S: You dropped your debut mix tape Two Weeks Notice last year, what's the response been like so far?

-H: Man the response has been crazy so far. I got fam and friends up in Chicago so they've been feeling the love real hard. And of course my city rocks with it, so it's been good man, real good. Makes me feel good because of the work I put into it.


S: Your next project Papers N Pipes: Puerto Rico Dreamin is set to drop spring of this year, what can we expect on that?

-H: A whole lot of laid back smokin tunes is the best way I can describe it to ya. Smoking tunes, and chillin tunes that set the scene to go to a place like Puerto Rico, because I've always wanted to go there. It's definitely a vacation, or a breath of fresh air. If you were feelin two weeks notice, than get ready to feel way better. I'm going to the next level with this one. I'm bout to change the game with this one.

S: Any shout outs?

-H: I want to give a special shout out to my team and family, my right hand man and my manager Anthony [AK], my street team Jeff C and Jeff (Freeze), my team, Jimmy Dolan for "The Show Me Show". My entire HBN family Bo Dean, Louie Boy, Dange, Phantom,and my big bro Meechie, my Mom, and the most important person in my life Storee Elaine Turner, my daughter.

Hystory is a self-taught artist. She works mainly with pencils and ink, but has dabbled in digital art as well, finding it more convenient and less time consuming. Need to check this and get more new skills for roof cleaning. Hystory's art is warm and their subject matter ranges from animals to everyday life and nature. December 13, 2022
