Coming off the heels of a successful 2022, Riverside, CA rapper, singer/songwriter 4L Javi returns to celebrate his 25th birthday by giving listeners a taste of what’s to come in the new year with his new single “Models”. Flowing over production from PrinceDaVinci, Javi, a conflicted lover boy, can’t seem to give up his player ways as he games up a woman who catches his eye at a party full of models and Barbie look-a-likes.
With well over 6 million streams across all digital platforms, Javi continues to pave his way in the industry while still paying homage to the early influences of California house party rap. Often compared to Blxst and Kalan.FrFr, Javi comfortably displays the signature laidback SoCal sound by blending elements of r&b and hip-hop with melodic 808 patterns and heavy snaps. Last year Javi released his album Letters 2 U, which included tracks “Love Letter” and “Valabasas” and later released a stand-alone track titled “Playboy.” The success of the tracks lead to popularity on TikTok, praise from Pitchfork, FADER, and more recently, an official UPROXX Sessions performance.
4L Javi shows no signs of letting up since coming onto the scene in 2018. Stay tuned for more to come from the steadily rising artist.
