Hudi, the rising rap artist from uptown, has been making waves with his latest song, “Yung.” But before he adopted the moniker Hudi, he was known as Hudson Prichett, an early 2000s kid influenced by the sounds of icons like 50 Cent, Jay-Z, The Neptunes, Missy Elliott, and Eminem. With these artists as his musical backdrop, Hudi began his journey into the world of rap, honing his skills as a young artist.
Experimenting with music production in secret, Hudi would borrow his mother’s blue snowball mic and tinker with Garageband and Logic in the sanctuary of his own room. Guided by his curiosity and passion for creating, Hudi taught himself how to produce through online resources like YouTube. At just 17 years old, he released his first project, showcasing his talent as a rapper and producer.
Hudi’s talent caught the attention of industry professionals, and he was discovered on Soundcloud. Through this fortuitous encounter, he connected with his current manager, who happened to be a former student of Hudi’s mother, a vocal coach, and a contributor to The New York City Jazz Record. The young artist’s debut EP, “TSAR,” released in 2020, received accolades from MTV, Early Rising, and Fashionably Early, further solidifying his position in the industry.
With his unique sound and undeniable talent, Hudi has already captured the attention of major streaming platforms. His music has been featured on prominent playlists such as Spotify’s New Music Friday and Fresh Finds and Apple Music’s Chill Rap, Emo Rap, and Vibes playlists. As he continues to make his mark on the rap scene, Hudi’s future shines bright, promising even more captivating music for his growing fanbase.
