TeddyHaze born in Aiken, SC son of Richard & Kathy Hazel. Haze was mainly raised in the projects in Augusta, Ga. the east boundary section known as the bottom. Growing up in what society labels all projects as a struggle. Haze was adjusted to loud music, shootings and the daily activity in the homefront. Then things were different when his father moved the family to Beech Island, SC. It was only 5 min. away into another state. Yet, this brought a total lifestyle change. All that was separating the 2 states was a bridge and a piece of water. The difference in lifestyles was an adjustment for Haze.
Haze had drawn his inspiration from some music icons such as Jeezy, T.I., Outkast, Ice Cube, Ludacris, Fabolous, Jadakiss, 8Ball, & Jay Z. Music has always been a part of Haze life. As a child, he remembers his mother always playing music in the house. Riding home on the school bus he would freestyle with his classmates. He has made music in a majority of genres such as country, rock, r&b, gospel rap, and of course hip-hop. He wants to offer a variety. Not many artist cross-genre they stick in one genre and focus. Haze wants to be different and capture everyone that loves music.
Haze embraces his performances with elevated energy and love. He also loves to get the crowds involvement in which you do not see this in a lot of today’s shows. As an artist, he has conquered the streets, clubs, radio airplay, and his city as a solo artist. He utilizes his promotional cd’s and tee shirts to give away to his fans to brand his name everywhere he goes. One thing Haze is also big on is keeping his music clean do to his own children’s involvement at times and those of others that copy singing his lyrics. A people-pleasing, crowd elevating artist he is always helping other indy artists from his town as well with any knowledge he has.
Currently, the single Haze is pushing his newest single “ADDICTED” check the song below with the video.
