Hasan Johnson a/k/a HaStyle The Barber-Artist was born and raised in the borough of Queens, New York. At the age of 12, HaStyle listened to his uncle’s boom box for the newest urban music. During the mid 1980’s, he kept his radio dial on hip-hop stations that played the likes of Doug E Fresh, Slick Rick, Big Daddy Kane, and De La Soul songs. He was inspired by the various styles of flow from these, as well as many more rappers and groups. One day, he decided to rearrange his poetry writings into rhythmical patterned lyrics to match the songs he liked. Thus, forming the style he calls ‘HaS’-style. Shortly after graduating high school, HaStyle earned his Master’s License in Barbering, attended New York Technical College to study Art and Advertising, and began rapping in showcases across New York City. Teaming up with the underground rap group ‘DMO’ (Dead Men’s Organization), which consisted of Apani, Mike One, and LIFELONG, enabled HaStyle to expand and openly express his talents. In the mid 1990’s, The DMO aired an underground radio show called ‘The Graveyard Shift’ in order to showcase their skills. This was his first exposure to live radio and airtime. An artist at heart, HaStyle pursues the art of rapping in order to promote his cartooning, barbering, and many futuristic fantasies. He wishes to make the world a better place through his music as well as encouraging people to be their own entrepreneurs. He combines the art of barbering and rhyme writing in order to embody a unique sound, setting him apart from the rest. So log on, call in and join in.
