The west country has never really been considered as a hot spot for Hip Hop music. That is, until recently. With the rise of The 3 Amigos and The Brothers Of The Stone this small town is now fully on the map with some of the country’s most exciting Hip Hop being made there. BVA is one of the main catalysts for this recent development. Inventor of the ‘loose tongue style’, BVA focuses on real life topics delivered through honest lyrics written more for himself than trying to impress anyone else. Carrying that inimitable original West Country laid back style with a razor sharp tongue he effortlessly blends between serious and light hearted.
Milestone after milestone, his rise through the ranks of the Hip Hop world has been nothing short of spectacular, leaving his golden touch on every single project he is involved in. His legacy begins as one third of underground favorites The 3 Amigos alongside Leaf Dog and Naive who made a significant impact on the scene and even caught the attention of the then thriving Dented Records imprint. Further highlighting evidence of BVA’s midas touch, the aspiring rapper then joined forces with Fliptrix, Leaf Dog and Verb T, as Rusty Take Off, to form The Four Owls. Who’s debut album ‘Nature’s greatest Mystery’ is considered as one of the greatest Hip Hop albums of all time and lead to a dizzying amount of live shows at home and abroad. Cementing his position as one to watch even further, BVA re emerged in 2013 as one third of underground kingpins the Brothers Of The Stone who’s self titled album was shortlisted as one of Wordplay Magazine’s albums of the year! Not only has BVA performed live all over the UK and Europe including big appearances at Glastonbury Festival, Boomtown Fair and the Outlook Festival’s main stage, but he has also collaborated with an impressive array of US Hip Hop legends such as Krs-One, Vinnie Paz, Sadat X and Reef The Lost Cauze, further emphasizing the extent to which BVA is the man with the golden touch.
There is little territory left for BVA to conquer, and he has indeed put in the necessary leg work to deserve such praise and acclaim. BVA’s story is one of constant elevation, constantly outdoing himself, his highly anticipated debut solo album is no exception and will go above and beyond expectations. You have no excuse not to ‘Be Very Aware’ as you have been warned and the signs were obvious all along.
