How would you describe your style? Versatile. Everybody says it but I am. I love music, my beats are like my mood. Some days I might be in a mood for some soul music, then wake up wanting to listen to, trap, then rock, etc.  Plus I like to build from the artist, the better I know you, the better the beats in my opinion. I might know the right sound that you need in your beats to really bring out your verse. You might not like a lot of sounds you know?

What is your musical background? My grandparents were in a band in the 70s along with many uncles, relatives. My mother, aunt & grandparents sing in church choirs. My grandfather, pretty much introduced me to funk & soul. From Parliament, James Brown, to Temptations, Ohio Players, Gap Band & Zapp & Roger. My mama & aunt, introduced me to everything in between. They introduced me to, the British invasion, Elton John, Phil Collins,etc. My aunt really was the one to expose me to hip hop, & neo-soul. From Wu-Tang, Tribe Called Quest to Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley.. My family as a whole really exposed me to everything.

Who would be a dream artist you would like to work with? Future, James Blake, Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000, Gucci Mane, DaBaby

With his versatility and knowledge of such a broad spectrum of music the future is bright for Crush Hayven. Artist out there looking for a beat look no further “Every Beat I Make I Crush Boy”!
