New Jersey is experiencing a rap resurgence. Up next is Hatty Maines. Like Banksy and MF Doom, Maines is letting his art – and not his face – completely represent who he is to the public.
“At the first show I ever played, I was stopped by security after my name was called up because I didn’t ‘look like a rapper.’ It should have been clear to me at that moment that I needed to do something different to be taken seriously.” states Maines. “You don’t have to see much of my face to see all of my soul. This is music, not a fashion show.”
