Earlier this month the first-ever HYPEFEST event took place from October 6-7 and brought together a diverse group of people who crave the latest trends and happenings. Buddy, one of the performers at HYPEFEST, sat down with HYPEBEAST to discuss life after releasing his long-awaited debut album Harlan & Alondra.

It’s been a long journey for the 25-year-old artists who first broke out in music as a teenager who signed to Pharrell Williams’ i am OTHER creative collective and record label back in 2009. Nine years later, the Compton native makes his proper debut and the LP is one of the best of 2018 so far. Speaking about the project, Buddy says while he was making new music, the album started to take shape.

“I didn’t really have a goal for what I wanted,” said Buddy while outside of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. “I kind’ve just went in and started making music. We had Brody Brown, Mike & Keys, Roofeeo, 1500 or Nothin’, we tried a bunch of ideas and then the album kind of just made itself.”

Harlan & Alondra is a 12-track LP featuring guest appearances from Snoop Dogg, Guapdad 4000 and Ty Dolla $ign, A$AP Ferg and Khalid that was released in July.
