Hipster Rapper Challenges The Uprise In Hate With Latest Song


The invisible opponent that we have all battled for years has taken a physical form as of late. Sometimes, you have no choice, but to embrace that hate and call it out. Upcoming Texas artist Buddy Cheeks embraces the hate on his latest track, #H8Mail (Hate Mail).

#H8Mail is a farewell letter to all types of haters, ranging from two-faced frenemies to trolls with platforms via blogs sites and social media pages. Over an Atari-pong infused 808, Cheeks calls out each type of hater in every color they may come in. Throughout the fire three-minute track, Cheeks beats his opponents with the only weapon that can work on a hater: Success.

Buddy Cheeks gave a quick insight into his mindset while creating this track ďHate Mail is kind of a lighthearted shot at the individuals out there forcing this negativity onto others. Whether itís bullies at school, trolls on social media or even family members, I wanted to point them out. If you listen to the song, you can see that Iím taunting them like, I see you, but you canít harm me. Most importantly of all, you are probably hating because you are not me and want to be on my level.Ē

Cheeks ends the track with a quick audio cameo from one of the most notorious haters in the game, the original hater ďIce-TĒ. Ice-T cameo comes from one of the most notable skits from the legendary Chappelle Show skit, The Playa Haterís Ball.

Currently, Buddy Cheeks is prepping the release of the visuals for Hate Mail. In the meantime, check out the track along with the source material for the Ice-T appearance.
