Hofstra’s Own Hookz Hits the MainStage at Music Fest 2014

Lyricist Hookz (Matt Murdock) is a PR major here at Hofstra University. He grew up in Brooklyn and strives to make his mark in the Hip Hop community through positive music. With idols like Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West, you are guaranteed to have some kind of message when listening to Hookz’s music. Don’t be surprised if you feel like you have just entered a comic-related movie, when you tune in. Hookz is a big fan of comics!

After 6 years of being in Rap Group Sha’ir (pronounce Sha-ear), Hookz decided to take the solo route and explore more as an artist. Ladies & gentlemen, buckle your seat belt because it’s time for the “The Adventures of Matt Murdock!”
