What is your name and what city do you rep?
My name is Saynave. I rep Philly
Tell us about your latest releases, what inspired you to create them?
I just released a song called Speak the Language. The song plays to my hobbies in languages. I speak a couple of languages on the hook. But mostly the song is just fun. The video plays to my love for aesthetics.
What is unique about you and your music?
I find that my brand serves a niche market in hip hop. Not only does my music resonate with your standard rap fan but my music speaks black professionals and the middle class too. My brand has been described as the roc nation brunch of hip hop. I try to target the same audience that watches Issa Rae’s insecure.
What shaped your music?
A general love for the craft
When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?
I never had an “ah ha” moment but as i got better the more i tried

Rap, Psychedelic Rock
What inspires you to write music?
Normally when I have something to say. I find it hard to rap about nothing
What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?

What do you wish you were told when you first started making music that you think would help artists just starting out?
The music industry is pretty awful and filled with scams. Talent is secondary
