Interview with C.U.J.O. the HellHusky

Southeast Hip Hop Magazine sits down with rising Blazed Up Records artist C.U.J.O. the HellHusky for a closer look, in depth interview to discuss his past, present and future.  Get into the mind of this versatile talented lyricist and well rounded recording artist!

Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  Hey C.U.J.O., how are you today?
C.U.J.O.:  Well you already know the funk don't quit.

How did you get the name C.U.J.O. the HellHusky?
LMFAO my name is an acronym. My cousin Stephanie gave me that name because we were at one cookout and she saw me eat. Then we went to a cookout at her house and she offered me a plate of food and I took it so the name stands for Cuz U Just Offered. C.U.J.O.

How would you describe yourself as an artist?
I would describe myself as (in the words of Tech n9ne) "a  clusterf**k" because there is so much that goes on with me. So much to the point sometimes I can't sleep. There is Portrait art, 3d graphic animation, voice-over acting and also music.

Who were some of your influences coming up?
That is  a very loaded question. You have Jackie Wilson, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Busta Rhymes AKA The Godfather of Hip Hop and of course Tech N9ne!!

How would you describe the current state of hip hop?
It sucks.  I came up during the time of Biggie, Tupac, Wu-Tang, groups and artists like that. Where music had substance there was a story behind what they were doing you can almost feel, see and taste what they are doing by just listening to their music. You listen to the music today you can feel what they're doing, as long as you're doing the same drugs that they're telling you to do. It's almost like it's cool to be a junkie now. I can't get with that. That's why I'm trying to bring the new state of hip-hop and merge it with the old state of hip-hop and still make great music.

If you could change anything in the world right now, what would it be?
I would change the need and want of power also racism, I will take them both out. You know that power that humans feel and want to exert over other humans. I want everyone to feel the same in the only reason why we don't and there are people who are racist is because they feel that they have more power than someone else.

Who are some of the artists you've worked with, and who would you like to work with in the future?
I worked with multiple artists. One huge artist like General P. We have two songs called "Fuck the police" and "Vicious".  I've also worked with producers such as bendin Beatz and Trapp Beatz and my homie Panama  the engineer. I had a team back in the day but we all grew in separate directions. Right now I got a new song with my homie Younga B and it's called "Battlefield." For the future I want to be able to work with anybody who wants to 
work with me, but a real good look would be to do a song with Busta Rhymes then to do a song with Tech N9ne.

Aside from yourself as an artist, how would you describe yourself as a man?  Who is the person behind the music?
This brother has a lot of soul just like James Brown. I'm a man of integrity and I'm allergic to incompetence. I know things can go right if everyone including myself pays attention. Straightforward is what I am there's no sugar-coating with me.

What has been two of your biggest accomplishments as an artist right now?
I'm still working there's more accomplishments that I'm looking forward to but one big one is being signed to BLAZED UP RECORDS!!

What were two of the biggest challenges you've faced being an indie artist and how did you learn from it or bounce back?
Two biggest challenges are being able to manage yourself and promote yourself, but if you have determination and you don't let anybody tell you no. Even though I have not came across too many people that will tell me no, I always bounce back with those two characteristics.

How did you hook up with Blazed Up Records?
Through my big homie General p. We did a song called Fuck the Police and he and I went to the Thirsty Goat in Waterbury Connecticut and perform that song at an open mic. For anyone that doesn't know about open mics you have a certain time and then you get off to let the next artist go. We rock that so hard the audience asked us for an encore and he got signed that night. I told him I wanted in as well and he hooked me up.

Is there anything else you would like to plug, any shout outs?
I'M LETTING ALL REAL HIP HOP HEADS KNOW!!  Blazed up records is coming through the smash on this hip hop game!! Shout out to my squad shout out to my family shout out to my wife and my son and y'all stay funky and keep watching the Stars cuz we finna kill it!!

Artist Spotlight: C.U.J.O. The Hell Husky (Blazed Up Records artist)

Blazed Up Records -C.U.J.O. The Hell Husky From CT
Sean Davis (Born April 12 1988) known as S Dot Breez Dot to some, a.k.a. C.U.J.O. The Hell Husky, is a Hartford born graphic artist, portrait artists, song writer and dancer. The Husky has been drawing and writing killer rhymes since he attended Camren Arace Middle school in Bloomfield CT. His first love was drawing and was inspired by the great Walt Disney to draw and use his imagination. When he started rappping, the first steps were writing his hip hop verses in the corners of his drawings. Once a friend by the name of Rayshawn Thompson saw his lyrics on a drawing and read them, he told the young husky that you should try rapping.  With that notion he started to write his lyrics more abroad and showing them off in the lunchroom, art class, and talent shows. Also With heavy rhythm from poplocking with friends he started to put his rhymes to his dance movement which created a silent beat. The Husky then started to listen and study from the legendary acts such as Tech n9ne, Busta Rhymes , Michael Jackson and James Brown finding a new style with speed rap and energy. He started to hone in on his musical talents while also using his artistic abilities to create drawings that depicted what he was talking about in his songs.
As time went on the Husky went to Bloomfield high school and  focused more on dancing and drawing. While in high school the Husky took it upon himself to then start drawing portraits of the young girls to start gaining attention with the young girls. Shortly after, some of the young girls started to pay the young Husky to draw them. This then enlightened him because it was a way to make his own money and also display his talent. Going through high school, the Husky did find himself in some groups of friends that showed him the ways of the streets and make faster bigger money while camouflaging it with his artwork. While growing and learning he figured that the street life was too boring and repetitive and can lead to nothing but negativity. Upon graduation from high school, the Husky decided to go to Gibbs College in Farmington Connecticut. While attending College, the Husky landed the opportunity to have an internship with the Walt Disney Company. The college program showed him the magic behind the magic and also taught him how to market his own magic properly.
After graduating college in 2008 the Husky found himself only working regular jobs and wanting more. With that in mind he went with his cousin Javon Campbell to a in house studio and dropped a couple of vocals as a hype man for his first rap group called Trap Team.  After finding Trap Team they created songs and performed them at open mics with Lovie xl and also performing at the Webster Hall Theater in New York City. Even though these were small time shows people were recognizing the Husky from music videos and his social media networks displaying his new work with the group. While in the group he adopted the name S Dot Breez Dot that was cleverly thought up by his friend Mark Jones also known as Lens.

Sadly, the group did not make big enough moves to please the other group members so the Husky, once again show courage and ambition to become a solo artist. Going back to his inspiration from Tech N9ne, he saw that Tech was the number one independent rapper in the world. This gave the Husky a new idea to create his own label called Easty Entertainment. When creating the label, the Husky wanted to change his name that best suited him. One night at a family cookout his older cousin Stephanie said "I'm going to call you Cujo". The reasoning behind the name was because if she offered him a plate, even if he wasn't hungry he would still take it because it was offered to him. Hence the acronym C.U.J.O. His name stands for Cuz yoU Just Offered.
As of right now the Husky is in full blown motion to reach the top of the musical industry and to bring back money and new ways to get children off the street in CT.  As a new affiliate of Blazed Up Records, he is coming with a couple new songs like "Fire" and "Vicious in CT" feat. General P. This is only the start of a great journey for C.U.J.O. The Hell Husky from CT. So prepare yourself for the restart of real hip hop!!!
