Two Rising ATL Rappers Connect for a Highlight From His Upcoming Personal Problems 2, Arriving on 9/4 via Commission Records
Big Havi combines an addictive melodic rhyming style with heavy lyrics about his internal struggles. Digging ever deeper into his psyche, Havi announces Personal Problems 2. The sequel to Havi’s early 2020 project Personal Problems, PP2 finds Big Havi refining his approach, spinning fast-talking rhymes and candied melodies into indelible hooks. The project reveals a more confident and brash young artist, one who’s still haunted by his traumatic past but motivated by the drive to provide for his family. Featuring appearances from Lil Keed, OMB Peezy, Slimelife Shawty, Seddy Hendrix, and D’Rick, Personal Problems 2 arrives on September 4th via Commission Records.
Along with the announcement of the project, Havi shares “Vibez’N,” a head-nodding new banger. Produced by Saj and Jug, who adds insistent hi-hats, syncopated 808s, and ethereal vocal samples, “Vibez’N” finds Havi strutting his stuff with help from fellow ATL riser Lil Keed. The two emcees share a thrilling Yin-Yang chemistry, as the level-headed Havi’s clipped cadences provide a contrast to Keed’s high-pitched trap operatics. “Vibez’N” will appear on next week’s Personal Problems 2 project.
Bursting onto the scene earlier this year, Havi is in the midst of a busy 2020. PP2 is Havi’s third body of work of the year. In February, Havi shared the expressive and infectious Personal Problems, which hosted the hit single “9 Times Out Of 10.” With over 27 million total streams, more than 8 million YouTube views, and a feature from Lil Baby, “9 Times Out Of 10” reached #34 on the nationwide urban radio airplay chart.
Later in the year, as protests demonstrating against police brutality rose up across the country, Havi shared No Pen No Pad Just Pain, a raw and emotional EP. Videos from the project, including the Qasquiat-directed “Blood N My Eyes,” found Havi showing support for the Black Lives Movement in his city. Earlier this month, Havi shared the video for “Testimony,” which paid tribute to his grandparents and saluted them for working hard to provide Havi with a bigger life.
