An interview with Pretty Boy Hef


How “Now” came to my inspiration, I had just got back from shooting my Music video called “Do my thing” I originally called Now “Times up” because i did not know what to name it at first. As I finish the song, and sit and listen, I thought “Now” sounded better. “Now” was the type of record where I felt I had to learn to live in the now instead of the past. 


I want my fans to take good energy from my music, because I feel that energy is a huge thing on earth and part of the way of life. I feel we all need good positive vibes, no matter what mood we are in, peace and love is always needed. 

Fans can expect from me to put out more music & possibly a full album, & and some show dates as well. 

I like Roddy Ricch new album “Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial.”

I want to collab with J Cole, Roddy Ricch, Cardi B, Lil Nas X, Kendrick Lamar, Timberland, London on tha track, Chris brown, Sage the Gemini, Bryson Tiller, Dani Leigh. 

Music is physical and mental frequency, and the way I use it, is as another voice, as in speaking for someone who can’t speak for themselves, almost like and reflection. I want to use my story & and my voice to inspire and help others who can relate to my story or if not worse or similar, everyone should feel like they don’t have to struggle alone or let alone feel like they don’t have a way out, or even way to understand and appreciate life more & how to live. 

“Truth be told” by me

“I done had some days I done felt like I couldn’t cry no more 

I was on my own, wasn’t nobody by my side no more

I done felt some pain that had me feeling like I died before, I hope I wake up.”
