Drawing from his musical beginnings singing, playing piano and other instruments, Hookdiggy takes hip-hop back to its core – thoughtful, upbeat lyrics driven by steady, danceable rhythms.
A Flint, Michigan native, Hookdiggy’s love of hip-hop took off after an encounter with local celebrated hip-hop group The Dayton Family. He remembers hanging out in a club parking lot when the Dayton Family pulled up in the infamous chroma-colored Dodge Caravan, bumping what would be later found out as a track called “Dope Dayton Ave.” The music completely grabbed the attention of everyone in the parking lot due to its representation of the city in which they all grew up.
It was this experience that made Hookdiggy began honing his writing skills, with the drive and purpose heard in his work today to be able to give people music to relate to.
Having experienced it from his local hometown heroes, he began his own musical journey.
