We had the good fortune of connecting with Crazy8theGreat and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Crazy8theGreat, what do you want your legacy to be?
I want my legacy to be one of infinite inspiration and triumph for anyone like me that once felt hopeless to follow in my footsteps to take the envelope and push it even further than I did. When it’s all said and done I want people to remember that I fought for self confidence. Remember that I wanted better for myself and showing them they deserve better to and that it’s possible to obtain your wildest dreams.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m a Nerdcore HipHop artist, I take nostalgic things and make music from them like cartoons, comic books, heavy on movie references because I love film and I’m heavy on anime references too! I bridge the gap between audiences and bring them together through music.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Cleveland OH can be beautiful, we’re a foodie town so there are always good places to eat, depending on what your tastes are you can get cuisines from almost any culture. The club scene is fun if you want to dance and be seen, bars got you covered if you want a more chill vibe and let’s not forget the live entertainment! From major stadium concerts at the Rocket Mortgage arena, Progressive field stadium, the Wolstein center, the Agora, The Grog Shop, Beachland Ballroom etc! Always something to do here!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
The biggest shout out has to go to my grandmother, with out her my instincts and talent for crafting words wouldn’t be possible. I wouldn’t even have my stage name without her. Also wanna give a shout out to my best friend TINO being instrumental in helping me develop my sound and lastly my sister Tracii Haze, this interview wouldn’t be happening if not for her recommendation!
