Huey's debut album "Notebook Paper" was released on Hitz Committee/ Jive Records and has so far spawned the singles "Pop, Lock And Drop It", "When I Hustle" and "Tell Me This (G5)".



Perhaps it's the inherent cool that he carries like an extended limb; he's debonair as LL. Or maybe it's the seriousness that masks his face when in deep thought; he's business as a young Master P. His mind to get money by any means necessary is virtuous as a young Russell Simmons and his no holds barred, relentless nature has the likes of 2pac written all over it. Whether he's the playboy that gets all the girls, the businessman that makes all the ends or the thug that you love to hate, St. Louis Hip Hop hardhead Huey, has arrived.

Grounded on the same streets that produced successes among the likes of Nelly, Chingy and the St. Lunatics, the 19-year-old's approach is a refreshing one. "I'm versatile," he offers matter of factly. "It's like whatever the beat tells me to do – it could be relaxed on a cool level to where I'm explaining my feelings for a female. It could be me explaining my feelings for money. It could be dancing in the club, crunk in the club. It's a bunch of everything that's going to be on this album."

The Notebook Paper, Huey's official offering to the masses, comes with perfect timing. Inundated in a world beset by rappers preoccupied with immersing themselves in the superficial elements of the world, Huey allowed his heartbeat to dictate where the music would take him.
Born on the 50 Block of Arlington Ave., Huey explored his musical side early on. Along with a neighborhood friend, he initially crafted beats to express his inner artistry and eventually started writing songs. "I never really took it seriously though," he remembers."

However, as his confidence and love for the craft grew though, Huey tried his luck on the block. Only fifteen at the time, he was showered with genuine support and reinforcement that obviously worked to encourage him that much more. Huey's older brother took a special interest in furthering the cause by bringing entrepreneur Angela Richardson into the fold. "She had a group she was managing at the time, so I was just waiting my turn," Huey remembers. "But they didn't play out the right way and I was the next project."

Without fear or favor, Huey became the sole emphasis of Richardson's outfit. Already a hit on the streets, he soon became the talk of the town, performing any and everywhere Richardson could book him. His visibility didn't stop on the stage either. The relationships that he built with DJs, promoters and the like, worked to establish him as a force in clubs and on the radio, ultimately finding nominal success with local gems, "Oh" and later "Pop, Lock & Drop It."

TJ Chapman (of TJ's DJ's) produced another opportunity for the young rapper. Impressed by the buzz that Huey had created with his close knit team (he heard "Pop, Lock & Drop It" and saw the dance in the club), Chapman arranged a meeting/session with Mickey "MeMpHiTz" Wright (President of the HiTz Committee Inc. and also VP of A&R at Jive Records who signings include J-Kwon and T Pain). Skeptical as any aspiring artist would be, Huey found himself accepting, but not overwhelmed. "I was like ‘Alright, whatever,'" he says, remembering his untrusting tone. "But like a week or two passed and MeMpH flew me straight to New York and it was done, just like that."

Before long Huey was being sought after by colleges and other non traditional outlets. He continued to build on his success by dropping 8,000 copies of a mixtape – Unsigned Hype – which the streets gobbled up like dopefiends. "They were with me then," Huey remembers. "They felt me."

Since forming his own click, The Camp Boyzz (Kydd Trel, Money, Marco Polo and himself), it's easy to presume that Huey has acquired even more support. The first artist to be released from the Hitz Committee, the young prodigy was uprooted from his hometown for favor of a condo in downtown Atlanta, but stresses that his loyalty remains in tact. "I'm St. Louis til the day I die," Huey says. "I love my home. It's a few haters out there, but that's everywhere in the United States. But St. Louis is with me."

The Diary of Huey: Pre Notebook Paper, his most recently released mixtape, is but a sketch of what is to come with the heavily anticipated full album – The NotebookPaper. Laced with guest appearances from the likes of Yo Gotti, YoungBloodZ, T Pain, Lloyd, Asia, Raheem DeVaughn and M.O.S., it's a moving testimony to life's ups and downs from Huey's young eyes. Bound by his love for the streets and everything therein, it's gutter as it is straightforward and true.

"Basically you take your surroundings," Huey begins. "Okay, you're young. You got guns around you. You got drugs around you. You got cars stuntin'. You got alcoholics. You got all this around you. When you place it into a notebook, this is your rhyme. So basically, everything is the truth. You place it into this notebook and off of the game you makin' paper. You gettin' dust now. Why not call your album Notebook Paper?"
