We decided to bring back Featured Artist Of The Month and our first artist back on the hot spot is Ottawa born rap artist, Hevve. The up coming artist has been consistent with releases and the performances since he started and his catalog runs deep. There are not many in Cap City that can say the same so we sat down with busy emcee and had the opportunity to get to know more about him. Check it out!
1. What got you into music?
I’ve always loved music and performing. From a young age, I would perform covers in front of friends and family. It’s just always been in me. Then I discovered Lil Wayne. The man is an absolute genius when it comes to wordplay and flows. He inspired me to start rapping and everything took off from there. Years of hard work allowed me to master what I know and discover new things daily.
2. What city were you born in?
I was born in the beautiful city of Ottawa, Canada.
3. What inspires you to write?
As an artist, my writing is an extension of myself. My music is my liberation. The same thing inspires my drive. It’s all about doing what I want. The freedom of what I do is what inspires me. You literally go in with nothing but your thoughts and a beat… and when you come out… you have this beautiful creation for the world to hear. It’s amazing.
4. What music did you grow up on?
I grew up on all kinds of sounds. From Dean Martin to Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony to Billy Talent, I get sucked in to whatever vibe you’ve got and respect the talent that I am witnessing. In fact.. it wasn’t until I discovered Lil Wayne that I dug deeper into rap as a genre.
5. How do you feel about other artists in your city?
I feel like our city has so many amazing musicians and artists. We’ve been cooking up bangers for years but there just hasn’t been enough major platforms that allow us to demonstrate what we have. I love the fact that I’m seeing more and more collaborations between local artists and the fact that platforms like Bring Ya Eh Game are putting the spotlight on us.
6. Do you notice the support from fellow artists?
Definitely! The support has been humbling and inspiring for real. I think it’s important that we show love to one another because this city is on the verge of turning into a big market. This is our time to put a stamp on this city’s history.
7. When you perform what are you thinking about?
Personally the music I make is all about setting a vibe. My vibe brings you in and my lyrics keep you there. There are only two things that cross my mind when I perform. The first is to bring you into my world by setting the mood right and giving you that vibe. The second is all about having fun. I’m there to entertain the crowd. There’s no way they can enjoy themselves if you aren’t enjoying yourself while you’re on stage.
8. What does Hip Hop mean to you?
Hip Hop over the years has had an evolving impact on my life. It helped shape me in my most influential years. It turned me into the confident, driven man I am, simply by allowing me to be myself. It has also enabled me to meet so many incredible people and experience such beautiful moments. To me, Hip Hop is life.
9. If you could live somewhere else in the world, where would it be?
I’d have to say either Australia or Japan. The cultures, the foods, the lifestyles… they fascinate me for completely different reasons but those are two locations that Hevve wouldn’t mind touching down in.
10. Where is the best place to follow you online?
Go and follow me Instagram! Plain and simple. Everything you need to know is there, as well as all the links to my music and videos.
@hevve on IG.. it’s the place to be!
