What is HMI about?
The song highlights how the music industry in Haiti is not what it can be. Just like the successful Western music industry, Mad Max Money Talk wants the Haitian music industry to evolve and benefit the economy. The main difference between successful music industries worldwide and the one in Haiti is the lack of resources and accessibility.
Artists of all genders and ages are able to create a worldwide platform for themselves that opens up several fulfilling and monetizing opportunities for them. However, the talent in Haiti is not able to do so. Mad Max Money Talks fears the talent in Haiti will go to waste, which is why he wrote this song to inspire other musicians and the government in Haiti to make necessary changes.
On being asked about his contribution with his latest song, Haitian Music Industry, Mad Max Money Talk comments, “I can serve as examples for the youngsters through my music and also speak a certain truth that needs to be said about my country.”
What does Mad Max Money Talk have to say about his song HMI?

When asked about the thought process behind composing this song, Mad Max Money Talk highlights, “HMI is all about what’s going on with the music business in Haiti. There are a lot of things that need to be fixed. I felt that I had to say something before it was too late because other artists don’t really talk about it. I have to put it out there for the government and the musicians because it is important. We need to change the Haitian Music Industry because I am tired of artists making great music and hit records but not making money. Most certainly, we need unity and love within each other now more than ever.”
Hence, Mad Max Money Talk dedicated his talent and hard work towards making Creole music.
