[WATCH] SEDDY HENDRINX – “45” |@seddyhendrix


Seddy Hendrinx recruits A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie to cruise around NYC in new visuals for “45”

Seddy Hendrinx managed to get a rare feature from the man himself, Highbridge’s A Boogie. While Seddy Hendrinx is a rising star out of Florida, anyone that can drag A Boogie out of the shadows and hold their own deserves a spot on this list. ‘45’ is off Seddy’s album that dropped on Friday, ‘Sayless’ – a really strong 7-track project with an impressive feature list also including G Herbo, Gunna, 24hrs, and another appearance from labelmate Jack Harlow. The talent and versatility of Seddy’s smooth vocals, every bit as hip hop as they are R&B, combined with the direction of Generation Now (See: DJ Drama, Don Cannon, Lakeshow, Lil Uzi Vert) – this 7-song feature flex is only scratching the surface of what we’re sure to see from Seddy Hendrinx in the coming year.

“The title is self-explanatory. I’m not trying to do too much or too little so I’d rather just Sayless. Let the music speak for itself.” – Seddy Hendrinx

Seddy Hendrinx exercises raw emotion in each verse and every hook. Holding nothing back, his confessional lyrics and catchy cadences cut deep as he details struggle in real talk. The Florida Boy Entertainment/Generation Now/Atlantic Records artist makes a connection by way of catharsis on a series of upcoming releases for 2021 and beyond.

“I try to engage with my songs,” he proclaims. “It’s every emotion you can experience. I’m just a young, humble, crazy, and wild project kid with a fucked-up temper—but a wonderful heart. I’ll always tell you straight up how I feel. This is street soulful real deal pain music.”

Seddy drew on a fair share of hardships to get to this point. “I went through every phase—homelessness, racism, bullshit, and everything,” says SH. A turbulent childhood came to a head as his family ran out of options and moved into a homeless shelter as he entered high school. At the age of 15, he became “a full-blown juvenile delinquent” with stints in and out of the county. Despite professing fandom for Tupac, Lauryn Hill, André 3000, DMX, Future, and Erykah Badu, rap never seemed like an option until he witnessed the murder of his best friend Johnell in 2016. Gunned down at a party, Johnell’s last words struck a chord with Seddy, “Ball out for me”. “I had to stand up for him. I wasn’t going to let anyone disrespect his wishes, so I started rapping.” In the end, Seddy’s voice will resonate for a long time to come. “I want you to know to understand my pain and know I understand yours,” he leaves off. “It’s okay to cry. I’m here to remind everybody they’ll get through it.” Be sure to connect with Seddy Hendrinx on his website, social media, and digital music outlets.
