Hip-hop and jazz find themselves involved in an apocalyptic creative synergy, a mesmerizing convergence of power when Hood kicks off his creative process. Taking the groove power and lyrical assertion of hip-hop and gracing it with a sublime infusion of jazz influences, Hood has created the next step in evolution for the rap movement and possibly the music scene at large.
Relaxed and Pumped Up?
There's no doubt music is full of paradoxes and Hood brings one into sharp focus. He declares that music grants him feelings of relaxation and pumped-upness simultaneously. “Music makes me feel good and relaxed when times get rough and it gets me motivated with energy.” It's not as counterintuitive as it seems. The way music makes Hood feel is the way Hood's music makes others feel. It hits the brain, sparks the good vibes, generates relaxation – which opens the listener up to the power ready to course through the veins courtesy of the endless battery supply of music.
