Bio

The state of hip hop has moved a fair distance since its incepted 90s boom-bap disposition. Amongst this constant evolution comes HVNCOQ, an up-and-coming hip hop artist whose versatility spans across every facet of the genre. Drawing inspiration from Mos Def to Night Lovell to Chance the Rapper, his melodious tone effortlessly flows over spacey trap beats and electronic synths. This underground buzz caused WVS to pounce on the New Zealand-born, Melbourne-raised artist, signing him well in advance of his debut single “Out Of My Mind”.

“Out of My Mind” is the first single from HVNCOQ’s debut EP due for release in early 2018, be prepared to see the Ethiopian-Australian’s name take over the continent.
