Hella Blunt$ Hits It Big


Hella Blunt$, also known as Humble Reagan, lives in Northwest Washington, D.C. While most rappers are known for wearing baggy pants and tank tops, Humble Reagan has revolutionized the rap game by switching up his style to sperrys and a polo (one of his favorite sports). A self-described “rich white kid”, Humble Reagan is the embodiment of an up-and-coming rapper.

His newest track, Michael Vick, is blowing up, with a whopping 192 plays on Soundcloud as of Monday February 9th, 17 days after the track was released. According to Humble Reagan, Michael Vick is “just something [he] made while kicking back with some bros”, a truly inspirational story that demonstrates Humble Reagan’s drive and commitment to the rap industry.

With his clever pop culture references and intricate wordplay – including timeless lyrics such as “This the Hobbit, you the dwarf, I’m the wizard” – Humble Reagan plumbs the depths of the male psyche as well as pushing the limits of what is culturally acceptable, saying “Was that offensive? Shut […] up. Don’t get defensive.”

Ultimately, Michael Vick is a breath of fresh air to rap, as Humble Reagan explores themes of arrogance and misogyny, two ideas completely foreign to rap music that prove that Humble Reagan is truly the rap world’s Next Big Thing.

We caught up with Humble Reagan at Potomac Country Club, where he was golfing passionately, dressed in gangsta rap’s typical spiffy all-white attire. When asked to comment on his hit single, Humble Reagan simply declared, “I’m dope, and I do dope things,” as he removed his gold-lined putting gloves. Truly a man of few words when it comes to describing his groundbreaking approach to music, Humble Reagan’s modesty and work ethic shine through on a mixtape that promises great things to come from WIS’s next musical breakthrough.
