Corey Kushington is an up and coming hip hop artist who isn’t afraid to dab into other genres such as R&B, dubstep and electric. The self-proclaimed Hood Hippie artist hails from Syracuse, NY, but now resides in Nashville, TN. With both states having influences on his sound and music, it is safe to say that Corey Kushington is doing things his own way.

I got a chance to chat with Corey about his upcoming music, the accomplishments of his single, “Like Me,” and what he has planned for the rest of the year. Check it out below.
