The ascent of a musician : Hash Blink? Like many at 13-years-old, music has a way of speaking for you at a time when the world around you is changing, fast. That was the case for Thomas B. Sheriff. At that time he was immersed in the The Black Album and The Marshall Mathers LP 2, but it wasn’t until a couple of years later when 50 Cent’s hit single, “P.I.M.P” entered his world that he started to realize that other’s music didn’t have to speak for him anymore because he’d realized his own voice. It was then that a young Thomas started to see himself as Hash Blink.
Hash Blink aka Thomas B. Sheriff is the new rising star in the Hip Hop music world, who got hit by the music bug at the young age of 13. Born and raised in Liberia, Western Africa, he didn’t realize his talent for singing-songwriting until the age of 15. Inspired by 50 Cent’s hit single “P.I.M.P.”, he inclined towards Hip Hop music and started writing songs, and jamming with friends in school. That was the moment when young Thomas started to see himself as Hash Blink.
In his singles “Nothing like you” and “Not perfect”, Hash Blink showcases his powerful vocal delivery and impressive songwriting skills, making the fans wonder what else the artist has to offer in his upcoming projects. Talking about his music style, Hash Blink states, “I want to turn sadness into happiness in a fun way. There is lots of stuff going on these days and we the youth are the next generation and leaders and if we don’t start letting go of negative thoughts our goals won’t be accomplished, when we are in jail, being killed for acting tuff, etc”.
Hash Blink says that he found great inspiration from watching Eminem and listening to him when he was growing up. “Eminem gave me hope. Because I figured if this white man could stand the angry crowd, then I too could do the same.” Hash Blink knows that it takes hard work to manage to enter the rap territory. He is determined to work hard to get there. Ever since he started performing to his fans in Liberia, and ever since he set his foot in the United States some two years ago, the talented hip hop rapper has been working tirelessly towards realizing his musical goals.
