Whenever a new rapper emerges, I tend to look deep into their roots and see what there about. The similarities among rappers these days are endless; Same background, same vision, and mainly: same location. Emerge 600 HJC, an up and coming rapper from Louisiana. Unlike most, 600 HJC presents himself as a humble, yet straightforward man with one goal; Climbing to the top. 600 HJC exerts all of his energy into music, using the strength from past experiences to propel himself forward. With that, I give you the 600 HJC interview.
