Hukspidey is a melodic and rhythmic tweener between a pop and rap act with a sound that’s still raw but with some work can be a hidden gem in the near future. As I get older I feel like I’m becoming softer, more accepting, and less critical of music made by younger people. Instead, I try to look for flashes of potential, things young artists can do well, and what they can build on to improve for the future. Hukspidey is a 19-year-old who is from Seattle, Washington, and happened to go to the same high school as rap star Lil Mosey. Artists such as Stevie Wonder and Sam Cooke inspired him to start making music with his father at a very young age. One thing about Hukspidey is that he wants to make it cool to be vulnerable and get people hip to expressing strong emotions in making meaningful music again. In his new single “Without You” this song is about falling in love for the first time and experiencing the joy that love brings and then it ultimately being taken away.
