With influences like Andre 3000, Chris Brown and Drake, SHVVD is looking to have one thing in common, their versatility and ability to create art that never dies. SHVVD has a knack for artsy melodies and clever punchlines and is looking to make a new school approach with a twist of lyricism. From Hip hop to pop to trap to west coast to R&B, this Long Beach artist has goals of being one of the most notable in today’s generation while still keeping that authenticity of an artist that’s still on the come up. “Clips and lean, that really ain’t my scene, but if if was, I’m ending n****s careers like pronto”. When SHVVD first started writing (2010), he was making music that he heard on the radios filled with “girls, money and the luxury life”. SHVVD realized that he didn’t have any of that and started making music about the things that he could only relate to and has done. No gimmicks, no fake s**t, no filter. Music is the one place that SHVVD feels he can say whats on his mind & heart. He’s here to put a voice to those thoughts you wanna tell your ex, to put meaning on lyrics like it was “back in the day”, to educate. Looking to turn up? There’s a track for that. SHVVD wants to be the app store of music. Follow this 22 year old and experience his rise in first person. His journey…. STARTS NOW!
