2019 saw Haviah earn break-out success with her album, 13th Floor, garnering overwhelming praise from publications like Pitchfork and Billboard, and making her the first hip-hop artist and the first Black woman to win Canada's Polaris Music Prize.
In 2020, the recognition spread internationally. Haviah made an acclaimed appearance on Sway in the Morning, crushing the 5 Fingers Of Death. In the UK, BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders recognized Haviah as “one of the most exciting new rappers out there.”
2021 might have seen Haviah’s momentum stalled by a certain global pandemic…But for Haviah, attrition is met with defiance, and hardship with inspiration. She describes the solitude of lockdown as not an obstacle, but “a window of immense opportunity”. Haviah pushes forward continuing to carve out spaces that boldly defy gendered expectations for women in hip-hop.
