In 2019, 22-year-old rapper Mavi released his stunning debut album Let The Sun Talk to thunderous applause and widespread critical acclaim. Following the success of Let The Sun Talk, Mavi had prepared a sophomore album set to release in 2020, but due to unforeseen personal circumstances, he decided to ultimately shelve the project. Instead, in 2021 Mavi returned with the stellar 5-song EP, End of The Earth, featuring fan-favorites like “TIME TRAVEL” and “THOUSAND MILES”, with a LoneWolf-directed visual, before hitting the road on tour in the tail-end of 2021, accompanying Jack Harlow on his headlining Cremé De La Cremé tour alongside Detroit bar spitter Babyface Ray. In an era where metrics rule all, Mavi has emerged as a unicorn––an artist whose output remains uncompromising, but still manages to maintain a sizable and mobile fanbase, (1m Spotify Monthly Listeners) even with a 2-year break between releases and only an album and an EP released. Only adding to his unique stature, Mavi is also a fully independent and financially self-sufficient artist, bringing a certain level of urgency to his work that is incomparable. Now, after years of reflecting, contemplating, and of course, rapping––Mavi is delivering his highly-anticipated sophomore effort, Laughing So Hard It Hurts.
Mario Hernandez, known as “Unknownphrazes” is a producer, singer/songwriter from Jaumave, Tamaulipas, Mexico. He was introduced to Hip-Hop around the age of eight, shortly after he moved to the United States. Listening to artists like 50 Cent, Eminem, N.E.R.D, & Dr. Dre, he would find himself writing raps for school projects, which then led him to find passion in writing. Growing up in the south, a move to Cleveland pushed Mario to embrace his artistry as a form of expression, eventually leading to forming the Cleveland Hip-Hop group, “Common Ave”. With the group, Unknownphrazes was able to open up for acts such as Dom Kennedy, Vince Staples, Curren$y, Ab-Soul, & many others. After their debut album “Aurora Borealis,” the group decided to split in 2016, which pushed Mario to embark on his solo career, as Unknownphrazes. After a three years hiatus, Unknownphrazes returned with a three-track EP titled “it was all an illusion”, which featured the single “Silhouette” and allowed for a comeback in the music scene.
Following the release, Mario moved to LA and had the opportunity to intern for Grammy award-winning producer, Nate Fox, where he learned the in & outs of the industry, pushing him to start his own record label/media company, “Desconocido”. With two well-packaged single + visual releases, “Mxse” and “Plot Twist” under the label, Unknownphrazes gears up to release his debut album, “Pleiadian Light”, set to release in early 2022.
