UNTHDX x TED MASSENA INTERVIEW
How long have you been making music and what inspires you to do what you do?
I’d always played around with rapping since like the 6th grade, but I’d like to say I started seriously making music in 2010. So like 17. All my cousins from New York were doing it when I was younger so I fucked with it, but kept it low from my fam for years.
How was HGM created and how does it feel to be a part of such a popular brand in Orlando?
HGM started with 3 people. Me , LV (my old manager), & Jae Flame (Rapper/bro). They’re not apart of it anymore.. HGM is like fam man. We’ve had our ups & some downs, but we’re on the come up forreal. We’re like a Tree branching off into different ventures. So like every member is like a branch. lol
