This week, Ha Steyelz joins us to discuss his music career, but not before taking Kev down a dark path—the Berlantivesre. Much love is shared about comic books and very specifically the Berlantiverse. Is Arrow still the flagship show? After geeking out for more than half the episode, Kev grills Ha Steyelz about his career.
ABOUT HA STEYELZ
Ha Steyelz was born in Queens, NY USA on December 22, 1983. He always had an affinity for the arts, whether, if it is drawing, dance, or music. The release of Wu-Tang Clan’s “Wu-Tang Forever” has sparked his interest in hip hop culture. Growing up in the 90’s, Ha Steyelz was greatly aware of the type of music he wanted to make. Influences involve most 90’s “Golden Era” artists, such as 2Pac, Notorious BIG, Puff Daddy, Wu-Tang Clan, and other notable artists.
Ha Steyelz believes in the eclectic nature of music. The instrumentals of choice for all of his music is unorthodox as it relates to today’s hip hop, but this is because of his philosophy of staying as TRUE to the creative process of hip hop as the pioneers have. By taking existing music and musical genres and mixing them to create something new.
These experiences from different walks of life, has given Ha Steyelz a wide range of education in people. Understanding the backgrounds that others have for their lives, helps Ha Steyelz tap into the characters that are demanded of him, on screen. Having played the role of Brian in the web series “Still In Love With Love”, Ha Steyelz is asked to become a best friend to a music professional that is not always easy to support. At times, the Brian character emulates his best friend, and aspires to be like him. But the story called for a different growth of the characters. Because Ha Steyelz is the cowriter, co-director, and chief editor of the series, the vision for the Brian character is realized early on, and translated well on screen.
