Hugh Lee inspires the Next Generation with his latest freestyle or “LEEmix” called “Stupid Again”, and highlights the need to rebuild the music scene in Chicago.
Art reflects society and society reflects art. This has been an age-old saying which implies that any art or art-form will be influenced highly by good and bad virtues existing in society and culture. Just like that, musical art also works on the same line, but some artists use their art or music to bring about a change in society.
Music is a source where one can channelize their angst and beliefs to create awareness or even a revolution for the same. But to maintain the sensibility of the art is also equally important and that has been mastered by a young musician, Hugh Lee.
Lee was born in October 1992 and hails from the west side of Chicago. Right since his childhood, Lee was enthralled by the films & music and wanted to become a story-teller. Hugh Lee is a dynamic rapper, singer, and songwriter; Lee has made a mark on the industry with his towering performances, and awakening music. Lee is known as an artist who draws from his struggles of the past, and at a young age is already a two-time Emmy nominated rapper.
Lee studied at Indiana State University, where he realized to pursue his career in music. After a lot of struggle he self-released, his first-ever mixtape, “FRESHHEIR” in 2015. Since then, Lee has never looked back and has garnered constant success, through numerous songs. Lee has been humble in his success due to his troubled childhood, and in his latest music video, “Stupid Again”, brings awareness and rallies the major Chicago artists to help build a better music scene in Chicago. Lee has remixed the Tory Lanez’s “Stupid Again”, not only for its melodious tune but also to highlight the struggling Chicago music scene. With lyrics such as ‘Shout-out to Keef in my city, Chano (Chance) and Dreeze (Dreezy), we should just keep in my city”, Lee called out all the known Chicago musicians to come together and save the diminishing music scene in their city. Lee’s latest freestyle or “LEEmix” as his fans call it is a series of freestyle leading up to his extremely hyped “Swimfan” music video release.
From his debut album, CABRINI, Swimfan is arguably the most favored track. Lee’s extraordinary achievements are a model for young aspiring artists, some of who belong to a troubled childhood, and serve as a reminder to them to never, ever, ever give up. To always rise from the ashes like a phoenix is what Hugh Lee wishes the younger generation to be.
