Meet Miami’s Rising Hip-Pop Star
With reggaeton and rhythm and blues growing, the South Florida native W8vey has been building something special for the past couple of years, but his music is truly indefinable, or according to him known as Hip-Pop. While serving the country overseas, W8vey began his journey in to music, a decision that would eventually lead to another career, a career in music.
A mixture of reggaeton, rhythm and blues, with an addition of some hip hop flavor, as W8vey’s bio refer to his style as Hip-Pop, the decision to buy equipment while on duty seems to be the right one as listener can identify the talent and gift for music that W8vey obtains. As W8vey is beginning to emerge as an artist and slowly building and developing a following, we will soon see an artist that will easily separate himself from the crowd and create his own lane, or create his own wave of music as the Miamian is one of the most unique artists to yet to be heard.

Kulture Vulturez: Reading your bio, you purchased equipment while in the military, what led to that decision and is that when you decided to become an artist?
W8vey: I’ve always been down to try new things and for some reason I had the urge to be a music artist and I just acted on that feeling. My sergeant was selling his used microphone. So, the opportunity to get some equipment presented itself and I took advantage, I figured it would be worth a try. I didn’t know that decision would take me this far. It started as just a hobby and a interest.
Kulture Vulturez: How can you explain your music, is it a mixture of sounds and genres?
