Tlingit and Haida rapper Air Jazz (Arias Hoyle) releases “Hooligan (Remix)”
Arias Hoyle, also known as Air Jazz, has just released the new track “Hooligan (Remix),” that features a perfect cultural blend of his heritage. Hoyle, who is half African-American, about a quarter Tlingit and a quarter Native American (Blackfoot and Cherokee), began writing raps around the age of 10 and learned Lingít in middle school. This led him to the creation of beats using Garage Band in middle school, ultimately creating his signature sound of speaking and rapping in both the Lingít and English language. Check out his new single below now streaming exclusively on Rising Indigenous Voices Radio.
