‘Time A Tell’:
Hemi is a recording artist from the Campbell Terrace Projects in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
He is the oldest of 4 children raised in a single parent household with his mother who was only 15 years old when she birthed him. His father was in prison most of his life and his brother, Hemi’s uncle, was killed in his front yard. His other uncle was sentenced to 49 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit which left Hemi the man of the house. Hemi eventually moved with his grandmother at the age of 13 but he and his brothers raised each other as there were no other male figures.
Hemi’s musical gene stems from his uncle who used to rap and had a movement in their hometown.
Hemi gained popularity after releasing singles from what would become his debut project, ‘Time A Tell’ in 2017 hosted by Florida legend, Bigga Rankin. The project has been described as a street classic full of raw emotion and lyrically aggressive. The title, ‘Time A Tell’ is inspired by the facts of life, time will tell everything.
‘Time A Tell’ is an ode to the streets of Fayetteville and features production from Cash Money A.P. and verses from local talent, Lil Ruga and Issac Perry. Each song contains stories about Hemi’s personal life and details keeping your head up during hard times. The lead single for the project is “Only The Real” and the official music video is nearing 20k views.
Hemi hopes to relate to the everyday person who comes from the bottom and may have a similar story.
Hemi and his label, Dead Play Ent are currently traveling throughout the United States spreading their brand and releasing new content and merchandise.
The following two tabs change content below.
I am a Music Manager, Digital Content Blogger, Publicist, Radio Personality, and believer of God.
I took a leap of faith in 2013 and moved to Atlanta after graduating from Xavier University (Cincinnati, Ohio) with a degree in Public Relations & Business Management. I connected with the Coalition DJs of Atlanta my first week of being in ATL and eventually began interning with the brand. My daily responsibilities included going from a minimum of 4 main clubs each night ensuring that priority records were being played while helping build and maintain consumer relations.
During this time, I also worked as an assistant for several producers such as Dun Deal, Sonny Digital and other musicians.
Working in such untraditional work environments taught me self-discipline and time management.
While building my name and brand, I taught myself how to shoot and edit videos, and build websites. Now I partner with several major blog sites to offer exclusive content written and conducted by myself.
I have a Youtube interview series called The Progress Report where I speak to artists, producers, and tastemakers about music, life, and entrepreneurship.
I also have a weekly live interview podcast at Highly Unique Radio also called The Progress Report with an all female cast aimed towards giving exposure to entrepreneurs and independent artists. The latest person we interviewed was Orlando Brown, needless to say it was a very entertaining show.
I am also the co-owner of Femcee.net which is the all-purpose platform dedicated to servicing and empowering womanhood through digital networking. (www.Femcee.net)
I pride myself on loyalty and my work ethic and ongoing commitment to bettering everyone around me from clients to peers while I learn from them.
I eventually wish to start a non-profit organization to empower young women teaching them how to be their own bosses.
