You found Denny "Blazin" Hazen, aka:  The AVERAGE HOMEBOY, who was

the FIRST rapper ever on YouTube from an anonymous uploader who posted

Denny's video at the very early launch of YouTube.

As a teenager, Denny Blazin Hazen  had a dream to become a famous rap artist

at a time when there weren't any white rappers.  We're certain that Denny

was the first rapper to make a music video while mowing his yard while in the

suburbs of Ohio.  Average Homeboy is the original "White & Nerdy,"

since Weird Al mimicked Denny in the famed music video.  Denny had a passion 

to share his original point of view in the rap game.  His junior high school

track coach nicknamed Denny, "Blazin Hazen" for his speed on the track.

Denny felt that his hot name would be a good counterbalance in the rap industry

since most MCs at the time were cold gangsta types with their tough personas.

For sure, Blazin Hazen was the opposite of a cold gangsta thug rapper.

Beginning in 1989, Denny started producing demonstration songs and videos.  

He sent them off to NY and LA.  Seventeen years later, an anonymous person

who claimed to find Denny's demo at MTV, uploaded "Average Homeboy"

to YouTube where it was featured on their home page in 2005.  

Quickly, the demo became a Viral Video and was shared on many

entertainment websites, including features on the home pages of Google,  

VH1 Best Week Ever, USAToday.com, WikipediaCollege Humor, Ebaumsworld,

MySpaceTime.com, URLesque.com, Know Your Meme, and many others.  

Denny's old demos are like a time capsule of the late 80's/early 90's

which include things such as Hyper Colored Clothes, Cardigan Sweaters,

and even a mullet haircut.  VH1 named Denny Blaze

as their Top #3 Greatest Internet Superstar

and featured him on their Network Countdown Show.  

The Comedy Central Television Program,

Tosh.0, flew The Average Homeboy out to Hollywood

to feature him on their show for a Web Redemption   with Daniel Tosh.

TruTV's - "Smoking Gun," The CW's -"Smash Cuts," BBC's "8 Out of 10 Cats,"

MSNBC's - "Countdown with KEITH OLBERMANN," ABC's -"Right This Minute,"

and G4 TV's - "Attack of The Show" have featured Denny's amazing story.  

The Average Homeboy has performed accross the US from New York

"NYC Music Festival," Cambridge, Mass. "ROFLcon,"

Cleveland's "The Agora," to W. Hollywood's "Whisky A Go Go."
