Welcome to Mollie's World (The Breezy Says Hot Seat), The Hated Crew
BS: What’s your group name and tell us a little bit about you all. THC: Hello, Mollie's World, we are called The Hated Crew. We originated in Chicago at the underground raves with some legendary friends. The experience was out of of this world. Around 2016 some troubles arise in Chirag and Dj Zig Zag wanted a change of scenery, so we relocated to Denver Colorado.

Tra'Zae Dj Zig Zag has done underground open mics around the country for well over 100,000 rappers, Emcees, and singers. It was this that brought THC the idea and the motive.
BS: How long have you been working together? THC: THC has been refining our skillz for about 18 months. New and fresh with the ambition and dedication to materialize lyrical content to the masses.
BS: Groups tend to come with a lot of problem because of the different personalities, do you all see this as an issue and if not, how do you manage to keep The Hated Crew working so well together? THC: We are no different than any other humans, it is human nature to show or act a certain way. We, as a crew try to resolve any issues with a simple communication and if that doesn't resolve the issue we search for a solution. At times the solution is to end business ties with that individual. Being, The Hated Crew is sometimes in the spotlight that can make various artists with big egos not easy to work with.
BS: What project/track means the most to and which project/track are you all the proudest of? THC: We have a track on the album "The Watchers," called Marathon, it's about surveillance state...look around and you will see exactly what that song refers to with everything being recorded and/or monitored. Our real fun track is VIP Where I Go, before the quarantine we were very fortunate to experience the Las Vegas VIP experience. Female rap element is I'm that Chick, by Rocci; which will leave you undoubtedly jonesing for more! We were fortunate to play at numerous casinos and networked with like-minded individuals. We are currently finalizing the new album about to drop "End OF Days."
