March 4, 2010 - PRLog -- Entertainer, Huey became an MTV favorite with his nationally successful hit, “Pop Lock and Drop It.”  The addictive song was played in schools, clubs and dance competitions across the country.  Huey’s single created a frenzy and new addition to hip hop, forever cementing the club hit in American pop culture.  The song was the Midwest theme song for MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew.  Although he is grateful for the impact of “Pop Lock & Drop It,” from Huey’s perspective- the immense success of the single came at a cost of an album story that was overshadowed by the popularity of just one song.   The public didn’t get a chance to truly absorb “Notebook Paper” or to get to know who Huey really was as a lyricist and storyteller. Truthfully, it is Huey’s lyrical ability and skills as a writer and reporter of hood politics that makes St. Louis and the Midwest stand behind him at an unprecedented level.  Huey’s large following is so strong that he sold one million ringtones before his album “Notebook Paper” was released.  Even before getting a major deal, Huey received enormous spins from the radio strictly from a St. Louis support system that backed the edgy lyricist.  Huey is now ready to embark on a movement that crosses artistic lines.  With new music and an army of support from his city and the whole Midwest, the down to earth lyricist is enlisting every chart-topping rapper that came out of St. Louis to rise up as collective soldiers of hip hop.    His attempt to unite a once separated divide is creating a wave that showcases St. Louis in its most brightest and artistic elements.  Everyone from Murphy Lee, the St. Lunatics, Chingy and Jibbs are all part of the movement.  In addition to a new album story, Huey is telling the story of St. Louis through his eyes in a documentary that highlights unseen perspectives of music, life, politics and the future of the gateway to the west.  
On his new catchy single, “Smile & Wave,” Huey teamed up with Texas rapper, Dorrough.  Like Smile & Wave” Huey’s other record , “Hello To My Haters” centers around the theme of simply taking the high road as opposed to reciprocating negativity & violence.  Knowing what it was like to struggle and seeing how violence devastated his own neighborhood inspired Huey to spread his creativity in the community.  Aspects of his music derive from his consistent   efforts to reach the youth who may otherwise find solace in the street life.   Huey has  teamed up  with Urban Alliance For Child Development, Inc (UAACD) which is a nonprofit organization founded in 2001 to enhance the social and cultural well-being of young people through arts and education.  Founded by Sociologist and Professor, Mk Stallings, UAACD is the principle program for the youth magazine, Corner Pocket which uses hip hop in journalism, literature, and popular culture to engage young people in writing projects.  UAACD offers writing workshops and classes to enhance the talents of writers and artists as a component to keep them from taking wrong paths in life.  UAACD is currently holding a fundraiser event on April 5th featuring Huey.  The fundraiser’s focus is to help create funds that will sustain the program.  No matter where music takes him, Huey’s priority will always be his community.    For Press info please call: 206.600.0647
