Hayward is back with an update on some new visuals! Cruisin’ off his LP DIVINE INTERVENTION, released early in the year, he decides to revisit one of his hit singles! Hayward picks on REGULAR to pair with a music video and give the song even more life! The video is just a spacey as the beat itself, with old static television picture, as old video cassettes and popcorn lie around an old school box television and camcorder; adding a retro ambiance to the video, or nostalgia, for the 90’s kids. Hayward contemplates deeply in his lyrics about what it is to be REGULAR. Jumping on the beat with, “I been going through some shit, then again who isn’t. What would ya’ll do if you was put in my position, ain’t regular I was put here on a mission. Man you gotta make decisions.” Seemingly at odds with and ultimately accepting his divine purpose as opposed to a regular path; every artist or individual may bear this responsibility at one point or another in their creative journeys!
Some things can come into life and completely change things up for the better like DIVINE INTERVENTION. It can be anyting, even your own mindset, as what it seems for Hayward! Turning himself into a talented and respected videographer, producer, business owner and hip hop artist through straight ambition and hunger! His latest EP entitled DIVINE INTERVENTION embodies this in its production and content. Produced, mixed and mastered at his studio headquarters at Beat Box Entertainment by himself and MrIgnit, in full control of his creations like his own divine intervening presence.
Packed with 6 tracks, this EP puts you in a trance with its lo-fi hip hop beats and lyrical flow, and the title track does its job setting the tone for DIVINE INTERVENTION. Followed up with ALL AROUND THE WORLD, where Hayward realizes his blessings by the first line! “Where you been at? All around the world, all around the world“, creating a simple but catchy chant, as you shout and embrace your passion giving you the freedom to travel. Probably due to the attitude in the next track NO FAVORS, “Fuck around me you aint givin’ me paper, ill see you later. It’s a no brainer, got your hand out, dont do favors;” when you realize your worth you will not sell yourself short! The 4th Track TOO ON was released late last year as a hit single with a music video. The favorite of DIVINE INTERVENTION was definitely the final track STRUGGLE, most eloquent with the flow as well as confident, and the beat has a Chicago summer at the lake type of vibe, while maintaining a chill energy. A must have EP for the playlist!
