Hunnid is an award-winning urban artist, songwriter, producer and engineer with many accolades already under his belt. Continuously raising the bar higher for himself, the one-man army is on a devoted mission to be the voice for those who are often silenced.

“In my time listening to hip hop (since the 1990’s) I’ve not heard anything like Hunnid before. This is a single song called ‘Buss That’ and it has a catchy chorus as it’s just a matter of singing along with ‘Buss that, baby, buss that’ and I feel like it could be a strong radio single in that sense– because it has that pop appeal within the chorus but what it could be compared with in terms of other songs I’ve heard is not so easily defined.”  – Raised By Gypsies
