Hash Blink or the growth of an artist? Like Eminem, Hash Blink often sees himself as an underdog in the hip hop game. While Eminem dealt with being white in Black dominated genre, Hash Blink knows how much hip hop is dominated by the Western World but also like Eminem, he plans on breaking down cultural barriers and thriving. He notes of the inspiration he found in his youth watching Eminem, “He gave me hope. Because I figured if this white man could stand the angry crowds then I too could do the same. He was called and told so many things, but he persisted and that is something I want to do.”
Hash Blink aka Thomas B. Sheriff is the new rising star in the Hip Hop music scene, who got hit by the music bug at the young age of 13. Born and raised in Liberia, Western Africa, he didn’t realize his talent for singing-songwriting until the age of 15. Inspired by 50 Cent’s hit single “P.I.M.P.”, he inclined towards Hip Hop music and started writing songs, and jamming with friends in school. That was the moment when young Thomas started to see himself as Hash Blink.
In his singles “Nothing like you” and “Not perfect”, Hash Blink showcases his powerful vocal delivery and impressive songwriting skills, making the fans wonder what else the artist has to offer in his upcoming projects. Talking about his music style, Hash Blink states, “I want to turn sadness into happiness in a fun way. There is lots of stuff going on these days and we the youth are the next generation and leaders and if we don’t start letting go of negative thoughts our goals won’t be accomplished, when we are in jail, being killed for acting tuff, etc”.
His plans for 2020 are to release more songs. Born as Thomas B. Sheriff in Liberia, Hash Blink now stays in Chicago. He appreciates the fact that the Western World has always dominated hip hop, but he is not letting this stand on his way. He plans to use his voice to break down any cultural barriers through hip hop music to thrive and become even a bigger star in the industry where he has always considered himself as an underdog.
