SPOTLIGHT: Skinny Hardaway

With the work ethic of an industry vet Memphis artist Skinny Hardaway has been staying busy as usual since releasing his 1st project “Draft Day” late in 2017 followed up by his 2nd and 3rd projects “Never Again” and  “Draft Day 2” released in 2018. You can grab all 3 on Spinrilla.
Hardaway dropped a surprise EP “NBA” Never Be Average in June bringing his catalog up to 4 solo projects, 5 if you count the mixtape him and fellow Memphis up & coming artist (King XX) released in 2019.

Hip Hop is a culture and art movement that began in the Bronx in New York City and Skinny is working hard to keep it alive, which is not an easy task in a oversaturated industry.
Skinny also boosted his reputation as an independent artist performing and hosting his own shows in numerous venues in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston and many more locations.
Recently in the lab recording a new single with Memphis legend Kia Shine and fellow Hope Grind & A Dream (HGD) associate Dope Lhadii he stays busy perfecting his craft.
He caught the attention of a Interscope records A&R and had a meeting, in his words the meeting was “Real productive”.
Skinny is in a lane of his own as a lyricist and his magnetic personality and stage presence completes the package.

Blacktopia would like to honor and salute all the veterans, especially those that are also apart of our Blacktopia Movement!

"Happy, Happy Veteran's Day, from one Veteran to all Veterans. I signed up for the military at the age of 17 and went to basic training at the age of 18. I did 12 years active duty and retired from the reserves. The military has paid for all of my schooling and has put me on the path to where I am today. The Army has taken me to many places and has allowed me to meet many different people and experience many different cultures. These experiences have molded me into the person and the psychologist that I am to day. I am proud to be a veteran." - Adrienne Charleson

Blacktopia:  How long have you been acting?
Chamar Little:  I been acting since high school, so about 7 years now.

Blacktopia:  What inspired you to act?

Chamar Little: Oh man there’s a lot but Will Ferrell, Bryan Tyree Henry, Denzel Washington, Dacre Montgomery, Tom Hiddleston, Robert Downey Jr., Eddie Murphy, Jordan Peele, Lakeith Stanfield, Jon Bernthal, Laurence Fishburne, the list goes on man there’s too many to name.

Blacktopia:  What are some of your favorite films?
Chamar Little:  Predators, Pulp Fiction, Star Wars, Get Out, Saving Private Ryan, Pursuit of Happiness, Majority of Marvel Movies, Hidden Figures, Cradle 2 the Grave, Friday and a whole lot more.

Blacktopia:  How would you describe yourself as an actor?
Chamar Little:  I’d describe myself as a well trained actor, I pretty much know the fundamentals of theatre and how to develop your character and how to bring that character to life. I know how to connect with the audience through my character.

Blacktopia:  Where did you get your training and experience as an actor?
Chamar Little:  I got my training and experience at the illustrious North Carolina Central University’s Theatre Department. Trained under Dr. Stephanie “Asabi” Howard and Dr. Arthur Reese.

Blacktopia:  What types of roles have you had so far?
Chamar Little:  The roles I had so far are roles where I am under the influence with either weed or alcohol, someone of importance to African American History, a very laid back smart behind character and a ghost. Probably missing some cause I was involved in so much.

Blacktopia: What types of roles would you like to have in the future?
Chamar Little: I would like to have more serious roles to enhance my skills as an actor, since all the roles I play on stage reflects my personality in real life.

Blacktopia:  What would be your dream role or dream project?
Chamar Little: My dream role is to have a role, minor or major, in a superhero movie. Or as a character in another Predator movie, if they make another one.

Blacktopia:  You are also a cast member on the audio sketch comedy series, Yesterday Night Taped, how would you describe your experience working on the show so far?
Chamar Little: This is a new experience for me since I never done projects like this but I know it’ll be fun and it’ll be something fresh for everybody.

Blacktopia:  What can listeners expect to hear from you as apart of Yesterday Night Taped's cast?
Chamar Little:  They can expect to hear regular old Chamar or hear a side that no one has ever heard. So I’m excited about that.


Blacktopia:  What would you say has been your biggest milestone as an actor so far?
Chamar Little:  The biggest milestone I achieved as an actor so far is becoming an Award Winning Actor. Won a film festival last year with my other talented friends at NCCU.

Blacktopia:  Where do you see yourself in the next five years?
Chamar Little:  Doing what i was destined to do, I was born to perform, I was born to help people through my art. Whether it be me performing or something I created myself.

My brothers KC, KFC, Aaron, Elijah, Chanovan, Skool and my APO brothers/sisters. Dan Fashion Entertainment, shout out to them. And of course God for blessing me with such an amazing opportunity, for helping get this far through my ups and downs.
