This weekend we had the opportunity to interview Hip Hop Artist, Country Boy, and Dedicated Father HBizzle! Give him a follow @HBizzle252
So tell us a little bit about yourself, where you’re from, where you’re going
“I’m HB Hargett the 4th from Jones County 252 Eastern North Carolina. I am Mr. 252, and I’m going straight to the top because; I believe it and therefore I can achieve it. I know I’ve got what it takes to change the world in a positive way, that’s one of my main goals. My main goal is to raise my son to be a man, the proper way; cause he’s my world. Musically, I’m more an entertainer versus a musician. I love music, but if I can make people smile then that is my main goal. I want to be successful for my son, give him everything I never had as a kid. I want to be able to make sure he is okay after I’m gone”
Tell us a bit about your music and how you came to have your unique sound.
“I’m a country boy man! I was raised on country music, my grandma was a country line dance teacher. My grandma right now can out dance most young folks! My momma, she ran a bingo at one time that was when I was a kid. It’s funny; the same building that my mama owned the bingo, the first show that I ever did in my life was in that same building. I heard Hip Hop for the first time at that bingo. A lot of urban culture ya know? I heard Tupac and it changed my life. I fell in love with Hip Hop!
(This guy, sound guy! Shout out to Hawkface Jay, Super cool dude, jack of all trades)
But like I was saying; I grew up on country, Southern rock, I love all good music doesn’t matter the genre, but Hip Hop I fell in love with.”
What has been your inspiration for becoming a musician and pursuing music?
“My biggest inspiration musically would probably be Bob Marley. If I had to be on an Island and had to choose one album to listen to forever it would be Bob Marley’s Legend. I could put that on and it just soothes your soul, it’s like medicine for the soul. Without music man, the world would be in chaos. It is medicine you know? Can you imagine a world without music? I’d lose my mind, it’s been my therapy. I’m a loner. I’ve lost a lot of people, I’ve lost friends and family and it has kind of turned me into a loner, so music has been like my release. All my music is based on life experiences, I try to keep everything I say a hundred percent real, because you come out and listen to music and you think these people are really living that life, but ninety percent of them aren’t. So I’m telling you now, anything I say I’ve either done, or will make happen!”

With the direction the music industry is headed, how do you think Conquer stands out from the rest?
“Well, when I went to the MA international convention, it was an experience I will never forget. I got to meet Amanda and she was super nice, and cool. Some people you meet just aren’t friendly, but you have to be a people person in this industry and at Conquer you get the feeling that they really care about people. Conquer Entertainment approaches things from a different angle and I really feel like it will keep building, and one day Conquer could be one of the biggest names in the industry. They’ve shown me nothing but love and support. Jamar, Kim, thanks for all the continued support. Love you, appreciate you. Market America ‘Salute’!
Do you have any advice for your fans trying to make in the music business?
“The best advice I could give anybody is never give up. If you have a dream, follow it. Everybody is alive, but very few people actually live. Be true to yourself, always stay true to yourself, don’t every trying to be anybody but yourself. Of course you’ll subconsciously be influenced by the music you listen to. Take it, use it, but be yourself and be original. Never doubt yourself, doubt is the first step towards failure.”
Do you have any upcoming events we should be looking forward to?
Right now we’reat my brother, CEO of “Muddy Beatz Magazine and Muddy Mafia Records, we’re here for his birthday and this is pretty happening! As far as me, I have a song coming it’s called In the Stix and I’m hopefully about to shoot a video in Nashville I just gotta get the money together. When you’re doing it yourself it’s pretty tough! But I have a lot of projects coming up, meeting lots of new people and just workin. If you ain’t Networkin you ain’t workin!”
Give us an idea of where everyone one can find you. Social Media, music downloads, etc.
“I’m all over the web like a spider! Twitter is my top platform, I love it. . . I’m kind of addicted to it. I have almost 100,000 tweets I think, but you can find me anywhere. You can find me on Twitter, Insta, and Snapchat @HBizzle252. I’m also on Facebook as HBizzle, but Twitter is my top platform, I’m there all the time and I’m a total comedian, I give away free downloads, so give me a follow and you won’t be disappointed!”
Well thanks for taking the time to meet with us HB and it was great talking with you!
“No problem, was my pleasure! When you see Amanda just tell her much love, I appreciate her, and I think we can definitely make some power moves as I said! ‘Salute’. #GetConquer #ConquerLife
