“This girl BEASTS on the track!” captions the TeamBackPack video that launched Haviah Mighty to two million Facebook views in 2016. The Toronto-born, Brampton-raised artist began her artistic journey in 2009, and from there, her flow has evolved into her signature confident, in-your-face rapping style. With new school production and a forceful and focused delivery, this multidisciplinary talent is a rapper, singer, producer and DJ, all mushed into a 5’1” ball of fury.
Gifted with a name that carries a touch of destiny (yes, that really is her name), Haviah Mighty has captured the imagination of vast audiences through her powerful live performances and is rapidly becoming one of the most thought-provoking, viscerally entertaining and magnetic rap artists in Canada. Her most recent EP, Flower City, which spent 8 weeks in the top 3 on the CMJ Hip-Hop charts and was named one of Complex’s Favourite Canadian Releases of 2017, is a watershed moment in her blossoming career, and is a work of linguistic elegance, rhythmic ferocity and soulful sincerity that is overflowing with an insistent energy. Now, Haviah is working on a new album, executively produced by 2OOLMAN (from A Tribe Called Red), featuring Sean Leon, Clairmont The Second, OBUXUM and more. The album will be released in early 2019.
Haviah’s explosive live show, filled with fiery intensity and her fast, technical flows, has quickly developed her reputation as one to keep an eye on. Haviah has been invited to perform at key events like TDOTFEST, Manifesto, Honey Jam, So You Think You Can Rap Canada (a competition she won), and has opened for acclaimed artists like Nelly, Desiigner, Sheck Wes, Kranium, A Tribe Called Red, and the legendary, Snoop Dogg.
Female empowerment has never been stronger and Haviah Mighty wants to champion that message wholeheartedly through her music. Proving that lyrical ability isn’t a gender or age restricted art, Mighty is recklessly edging her way into music as a new face in hip-hop and R&B.
