Hoggy D ‘Hoggin N’ Doggin’
For the past 10 years, Omaha, NE native Hoggy D has been ‘hoggin N’ doggin’ his way up the rap food chain with his many successful mixtape series, on which he’s collaborated with a who’s who list of feature artists that would put some major label rappers to shame. In that time, Hoggy has shared the studio and/or stage with Zaytoven, Kevin Gates, Berner, Payroll Giovanni, Rich the Factor, Young Dolph, Nipsey Hussle, Tee Grizzley, Mozzy and more.
On Volume 1 of “Money Machine Friend”, Hoggy sticks with the ‘financial literacy for the streets’ theme he began on his last release, “Currency Converter”, and he is pleased with how warmly the streets have embraced it despite little to no promo or major features.
Whether it’s the deep reflective message of “Money Machine Fiend”, the inspirational substance of “Legit” or the happy, head-nodding tone of “Radical”, Hoggy’s latest gives everyone a seat at the table. Hoggy says that his greatest career achievement is casting a better light on his hometown of Omaha than Hype Wiliiams’ “Belly” shone upon it but perhaps it is more that 10 years in, he is still a ‘hog in the game’ with no sign of stopping.
Hoggy’s motto? “Set yourself a goal, achieve it and don’t stop there.” Words to live by. Nuff said.
