(AUDIO) Have You Met Nick Huff? (Founder & CEO Of Hardknock TV)

Back when I launched the Myspace as “A Place For Hip Hop” community many moons ago, I remembered wanting to do more than capture our live events such as the Secret Shows, interviews, sponsored events and artist features via photos. The personal goal was to also have archived video of our very first strictly Hip-Hop & R&B franchise, the “Myspace Release Show.” The only problem was? We lacked the knowledge of operating video equipment of course. What was the solution? Meeting Nick Huff, Founder & CEO of HardknockTV who currently partners with companies like the GRAMMYS, SXSW or Beats Music to provide quality, in depth interviews/keynotes with the biggest superstars of the day ranging from Eminem to Andre3000 to Coldplay and 50 Cent.

Pictured below, is the very first Myspace Release show with rapper Chamillionaire in one of his first performances as a Houston rapper in NYC in partnership with AllHipHop.com week where Nick was the producer, editor and videographer on location. Within our first few years we also traveled to Atlanta for the HBCU Battle of the Bands with The Dream, Miami for a Pitbull ft. Lil Jon release show and back to NYC where Nick interviewed Diddy on the red carpet for his fragrance launch. While I would have loved to provide funding and distribution for Hardknock TV at that time, it wasn’t possible but happy to hear that it was during those beginning stages that he used our events to support his sidelong project which later became the Hardknock TV that we know today.

Prior to that, Nick began his early career as an intern to Hip Hop journalist and activist, Davey D from the bay area. While under the tutorial of the great radio hosts Davey, Weyland and Anita at “Hardknock Radio,” he hustled to create his own cable access show, “The Road Less Taken.” This is where Nick developed his own voice, bona fide conversationalist interview skills and the idea for Hardknock.TV. Listen to the interview below to hear more and be inspired by the man who was once in “ESL: English As A Second Language” classes as a young immigrant from Argentina.

Over the course of the years Nick has interviewed every hip hop artist you could think of, he has a unique A&R ear that stems from his early record label days working in the offices of Sony, to see budding talent before the talent even sees it themselves. J.Cole, Logic and Wiz Khalifa found some of their first memorable interviews sitting across Huff and his camera. What’s next? We imagine a Hardknock Multi-Channel Network that carries the brand message of quality versus quantity. Rather than create original content for anyone and everyone, Huff curates content with a watchful eye and looks to partner with similar hosts and producers in other genres who will care as much as he does to every detail. Listen to the interview below where Nick also touches on the subject of continued education such as at the upcoming Funk Volume Virtual Hip Hop Conference that they are a media sponsor of. He values his early work and looks for the “young Nick Huff” in the interns he hires which receive hands on, direct experience while working with him. What he respects most are those that come to the table with ideas themselves and helps the company grow.

Full Dash Radio interview below which also features a special mix by DJ Beatcrazed, featuring all artists who have been previously featured on Hardknock that Nick is a fan of below as well as info on the upcoming Funk Volume Music Conference that he is sponsoring, a personal advocate for continued education, no matter which stage of your career.

DJ VICE x MIKE TAYLOR “WIO” Song In Bud Light #UpForWhatever Commercial Starring QUESTLOVE, CHARLI XCX, LIL JON, ALESSO & Many More.

Was stoked to see this new Bud Light commercial for their #UpForWhatever campaign starring Questlove, Chari XCX, Alesso, Lil Jon and many more as they participated in unforgettable moments in ONE CITY throughout the memorable weekend to the soundtrack of DJ Vice’s “WIO: World Is Our Playground” featuring Mike Taylor. They debuted the song on Third Floor Radio on SKEE247 months ago, and when first hearing it always felt it would be fitting for a great commercial like the one below, part of the reason why I made Mike Taylor sing “WAAAAALNUT” and “EAAAGLE ROCK” in the LIVE video below, where Vice and I are from. 😉

Congrats guys! This is the only commercial that I hope to hear 100x a day so I could sing a long to it – “Philaaaadelphiaaaa!” Hope the music supervisors for upcoming movies and TV shows are taking note of who wrote and produced the song. =)

Life will never be the same after #WhateverUSA. It takes a special type of town to open their doors to whatever & go all in for an entire weekend. See the weekend recap from a little town that was #UpForWhatever in big ways: www.upforwhatever.com
