UHTN: First of all, introduce yourself to the people!
Nard: I’m MobSquad Nard straight outta Duval!

Nard: Not really. . . I’m definitely on the go though. I can’t wait to go through it, I hope to show a lotta love in every spot we hit!
UHTN: If you were stranded on an island for the rest of your life and could only take three albums with you, which ones would you pick and why?
Nard: Definitely Juvenile – G Code, Trick Daddy – Based on a true Story, and Soulja Slim n BG – Thug Brothers
UHTN: Being a Florida native, who are some of your favorite Florida artists? Past or present.
Nard: Trick Daddy, JT Money… Salute.
UHTN: You have tracks with rap heavyweights like Big K.R.I.T. Who are some other artists that’d you’d like to work with in the future?
Nard: I’d like to get in the booth with C-Murder, Too Short, and Ronald Isley.
UHTN: You released your mixtape, Everything Clean But Da Ashtray, earlier this year. What can fans expect from you after Smoker’s Club Tour? A new EP?
Nard: I have a new mixtape ready already, and I might drop it while on tour, just wait. . . .
UHTN: What do you think of the current state of hip-hop? Is it in a good place?
Nard: I am hip hop, and as long as I’m alive, we good. I ain’t saying I’m hip hop because of the little things and critiques. (Laughs) I’m sayin it ‘cuz I tell it like it is down here, and I make quality sounds on a beat; so don’t nobody need to worry ‘cuz my team and I are here.
UHTN: Anything else you’d like to add?
Nard: Keep it real ‘cuz God is watching.
