Explain who you are for those who don’t know
How did you come up with your name? Before I came up with the name it was a struggle because I had to be catchy and creative since I was younger I was always bad now was always in a lot of trouble so that’s where the name hot boy came from and sunny just reflects of the Sun and also I’m light-skinned so it’s kind of a play on words
Where are you from?
I’m from Cleveland Ohio East Side Shaker Heights
Whats it like growing up where your from?
It was a struggle growing up where I am from even though it was the suburbs people think just because you live in a nice house your life is just golden everything isnt always what it seems to be a growing up in a household where with alcoholism, domestic violence, money problems, we always had something going on.
How did you get into music?
It all started just in the basement with the homies freestyling and just doing what we usually do. I started taking seriously about few months ago probably 6 months ago what inspired me was my best friend Damon, he committed suicide and it was just so much pain that I just had and I had to find a way to release that and that was two years ago.
What makes you different than other artists
I’m different from other artists because I actually tell my story I don’t try to add anything that I never been apart of I don’t try to put on a facade to sell my music I’m just me and I paint a picture if the struggle
What are you currently working on?
Who currently working on new music planning on putting out a mixtape pretty soon just got to wait patiently can’t put time on good music it just comes naturally and when it feels right I’ll drop my mixtape but for now I got songs for days.
