Hype Holla: My music is Rhode Island-inspired, and Believe Music is the movement. When you here a Hype Holla CD, you’re listing to raw emotions that I go through during the time I was making the music. I try to touch all emotions with my music, from party music to commercially ready music, back to underground music, then my favorite with lyric content.
HHK: You’re a Rhode Island resident, which you proudly state in your music. Do you think you’ll be taking the obligatory trip to New York at some point to increase your profile? Or do you think you can be equally successful in Rhode Island?

HHK: Thanks for speaking to us Deadly. For the readers who may not be familiar, can we have a brief introduction?
Deadly: Well… my name is Deadly and I’m a female lyricist from East London I have been making music for up to seven years now I currently have a mixtape out entitled ‘ 1st Place, Greatest Kid’.
HHK: How important was it to leave M.I.C to identify you as an individual artist to progress your career? And do you still keep in touch with the other members?
Deadly: Yes I do keep in touch with some of M-I-C we left on good terms so the contact is still there although every really does there own things now. I think it was extremely important for me leave M-I-C to fly solo literally and build myself as an artist with personal time. I went from 8 bar tracks and sharing beats to finding my own resources and making my own tracks I depended on my own thinking by force. I believe whilst in a crew one can unknowingly get into a comfort zone.
