Detroit’s own Hatch The Wiseguy and Shady Records publishing artist Astray have recently joined forces for a new single “Down TO Be Down,” and the music video came with it!
During a conversations with Southpawer, Hatch talked about the background of the single: “This song was originally an old idea we created when Astray and I first met years ago, but we never ended up releasing the song. Years later (2023), I rediscovered the track on an old hard drive, and it felt like the perfect time in my life to put something like this out.” he said.
Then he continued: “Astray and I discussed some new ideas and changed parts of the verses and the chorus. We then added some new instruments to the beat and I also added a bridge to update the overall sound and breathe new life into the concept.”
“Astray and I have collaborated for years, so our musical chemistry is natural and free-flowing. We trust one another’s opinions. There is a mutual respect between us as creatives.” he added.
The song is supposed to be the firs single off Hatch’s upcoming project with also features D12’s Bizarre and Kxng Crooked among others.
