The LA-Based Hip-Hop Artist is Breathing New Life Into the Industry with Transparency, Authenticity, and Vulnerability
It has been said that pain produces perseverance, but in the case of LA-based hip-hop artist TVKU, pain produced purpose. TVKU is not your typical hip-hop artist. His one-of-a-kind style breaks the norms of traditional songwriting to usher in a new era of transparent authenticity to bridge the gap between the artistry and support for those in pain.
TVKU began making music as a means to cope with the pain of his parent’s divorce when he was only 10 years old. Faced with a profound emptiness, TVKU found refuge in lyrics, until he met her. When he met her, he fell hard and fast, convinced with every fiber of his being that she was the one — until it all came crashing down.
When she called him late at night, he grew worried as to what he would hear on the other end of the line. Was she okay? Did something happen? Until he heard moans. He plummeted from heights of cloud nine within mere seconds and that pain he experienced as a child grew greater.
Determined to rise, he again turned to music to find solace and a renewed sense of purpose. In making music that everyone can relate to on a deep emotional level, he found community and a passion for helping people navigate the pain of hurt and heartbreak through therapeutic songs.
His music is both captivating and moving, eliciting intense emotion and connection to TVKU’s own experiences. By dismantling this vulnerability barrier within the industry, TVKU is empowering individuals to laugh, cry, and grow together through the power of music.
