Give us your bio: So I’m Lil Hvy from the DMV. Born in Maryland, Germantown . I’m a footballer (soccer player) in Europe and I do music while I play. I got the name Lin Hvy after I piece I got a couple years ago called Heavy but it had HVY engraved on it haha! Currently I’m taking classes online while playing soccer and making some good music!
Who are your top 5 influences? My Top 5 influences would be Biggie Smalls who I listened to since I was young. Another is Slick Rick who’s story telling ability is untouched. Recently though, I’m listening to Drake and as far as new artists go a lot of Lil Skies n lots of Jay Critch. Also Nav is the truth too. I stamp. I think that’s six but those are my top influences for sure.
When are your new projects coming out? I got a mixtape comin out in May or June and a joint project with my boy from Baltimore Tai Lee coming in a a month or so. We have a special called “Fucked the Fame” coming out in a couple weeks so I’d watch out for that too. My mixtape and some of the joint project though, will be produced by our homies AndrewG Beats, Krobmakesbeats and lots of other names y’all might have heard of before. I’m also working with my boy Zion G who has worked with some big names too, so I got some exciting stuff coming out in these next months. I advised all to stay tuned!
What helped you get into music? I’ve played some instruments before when I was young but chillin with some boys back home in high school and recently during college who were recording really got me into making music. They would tell to me to just hop on songs so I decided so I should really starting making some material for myself. I thought I had my own sound so I felt I needed to put that out there so people could feel who Lil Hvy is.
What is one thing you would tell your fans? Don’t sleep! I’m out here with my own sound not trying to copy others. I’m just a guy trying to make it in the game but I’m having fun with it. The most important thing is having fun so I’m hoping people get that from my songs. I’m trying make a name for myself but people gotta know I’m having fun too. Its a good vibe I’m always trying to create.
What are your biggest goals for 2018? My biggest goals are to hopefully be heard! I’m going to just keep working and putting out music that’s my sound and hopefully people are going to like it! I’m also hoping to collab with some big producers and put out some bangers that people across the country will be blasting! Hopefully people will have heard of the name Lil Hvy by the end of 2018!
