Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

“Never Have We Seen This Much Money Passed & This Many People Involved”

A direct quote from Robert Boyce, NYPD chief of detectives in may 2017
That still holds true for “WhoIsBravy” & his new movement today.

STATEN ISLAND, NY: Today, WHOISBRAVY, a jiggy rapper/ independent label owner from Park Hill Staten Island, dropped a raw video for his first single OTG ft Abby Jasmine off his new project “Things Never Stay The Same”.

“Things Never Stay The Same” isn’t just the name of his album, it’s his testimony. When asked “Why music? After everything you experienced in the past few years… Why now?” Bravy simply answered “… because you can rewrite your story at any point in your life.

ABOUT WHOISBRAVY: If you’re just meeting Bravy, you’re meeting a father, a student, a businessman, and a popular local artist just a cool guy on the straight and narrow. Back in 2017, Bravy was most popularly known for being one of 32 people involved in a record-breaking fraud scandal gone wrong.

In Bravy’s debut project he’s giving authentic NY sounds comparable to the likes of Dave East and Asap Ferg, while telling stories that reflect on the black male experience. Unfortunately the famous story of his indictment isn’t an uncommon one in underserved communities such as where he grew up. But Bravy isn’t just highlighting the harsh realities; his music also celebrates the good stuff! Bravy prides himself on his flashy fashion sense, navigating his way through not just the Staten island music scene, which some may say is considerably insolated, but into the Harlem scene too!

Speaking of Harlem… Heads up! Bravy will be dropping yet another project that will include 3 bangers produced by Harlem’s very own V Don Serious Soundz exclusively through Roc Nation’s new Distribution platform EQ.

In conversation, Bravy never hesitates to show love to his partner/ co-owner of the WHO IS label Benie Adams & made sure to mention future collabs with other homegrown talent on the rise such as Snoop Not Nice & Veto Corli.

While you Whooligins (what he calls his supporters) impatiently wait for those vibes to drop… Check out the official OTG video below! There’s plenty to captivate you in this visual, from big booties to trippy patterns. Enjoy!
