The Break Presents: Harvey Stripes

Breakout: “Letting Go”

Also Check: “Shawty Got That” ft. Jason Derulo

And: “Paid” ft. Max B

Name: Harvey Stripes

Age: 26

Reppin’: Ottawa to Toronto, Canada

My style and/or skills have been compared to: I’m mostly compared to my odler music. I try to keep my style and sound as unique as possible. And I’m always growing as an artist, and experimenting with new styles.

I started rapping: At the age of 13… Karaoke machine and a cassette tape deck.

My standout moments/records have been: “P.A.I.D.” featuring Max B. That was my first official single and video as solo artist. It was also one of Max’s last hooks he did before being incarcerated. Another standout moment was going on tour with Mario and working on record “Sobriety.” It was my first time headlining a national tour in Canada.

I’m gonna change the game by: Knocking down all borders in regars to music. I plan to show the world that great music is universal.

I’d like to work with: John Legend and Bruno Mars

My goal in hip-hop is: Success. To make history. To be the underdog that built an empire from the ground up on his own.

I’m going to be the next: I am the first Harvey Stripes. Literally came from nowhere and turned a penny to a million.
