A west coast native living now in the dirty south, Flava Hype has been honing his skills as a lyricist for over 20 years. Flava is influenced by old and new school hip hop as well as other genres of music. An intelligent lyricist with very creative and original concepts, Flava is different in his approach to music and his content. With a wide range from fun, danceable tracks to emotionally driven songs to social awareness cuts, he never worries about being pigeon-holed. His music is honest and relevant and isn't centered around money, sex, drugs and violence which has seemed to saturate the mainstream airwaves. Flava Hype is ready to break the stereotype people have about hip hop by simply, being himself.

wow Flava, You are a seriously damn good poet. The Struggle is real may be some of the most meaningful words I've ever heard. So your other song gave me an idea. The mixing blues with rap thing. I'd like a chance to collaborate with you. write you a piece of music and you can put whatever words you want over it. Something that has hip hop verse sections and a bluesy / soul chorus Two songs that come to mind are the Trill is gone by BB and There aint no sunshine When She's gone by Freddie King , I hear them in my head with the chorus the same but what if they rapped out the verses It will have an awesome tempo change. Anyway, give me a couple a weeks and I'll send you something, if you don't like no worries I'll just do something else with it . I have one song that touches on the idea but its a synthesis of Blues hip hop and rock and the structure is different, Its called Satisfy, you might check it out. and One other thing, This song The struggle is real, What if you put some pauses in the lyrics during the chorus, " Is this how its gunna be, pause, Is this how I will live out my destiny, pause, The struggle....... slowed it down a little and made just the chorus a little more soulful. I could be more powerful that way. Its such a good song man I'm just blown away by the poetry. peace. barry

I love the mix of Blues with the Hip Hop rap on send me to my grave, seems like a perfect hybrid, I wonder why no one else has ever done it< I mean blues is obviously the cultural grandparent to rap, well anyway, its nice to hear the past and the present come together in this song, what a great song!!
