Biography

Harlem, New York NY, United States (2003 – present)

Swave Sevah aka Swavy Krokett aka The Spitist, aka Anakyn Highwalker. Call him what you want, but once you hear this NYC native’s unmistakeable baritone and clever verses, you won’t forget him. Born and raised in Harlem, New York, Swave started spitting rhymes at the age of 9. He studied martial arts and earned black belts in Tae Kwon Do and Shotokan. As a young man, he dreamed of someday making it to the NBA, but that faded as his passion and talent for music grew. “Hip hop swallowed me whole,” he says. Now Swave is one-third of the hip-hop group Cvees, who released their debut single “The Jump Off” in July of 2003. He also is a member of the underground wrecking crew Stronghold.

Swave’s gravelly freestyling won the world famous End of the Weak MC Challenge …20, and along with rap partner-in-crime IkeP, Swave won the spitboxing tag-team battle at Club Pyramid. In 2005, he toured the United States with J-Live, C-Rayz Walz, and Vast Aire on the Best Damn Rap Tour. He also recently has been touring the world with Immortal Technique. 2008 was a big year for Swave after dropping high profile appearances on Vast Aire’s “Duece’s Wild”, and Immortal Technique’s “The Third World”, he was crowned the Unisigned Hype from The Source magazine. With his ONG BOK and So Harlem mixtapes flooding the streets, the world will finally be ready for his solo debut “Hell Up In Harlem” produced enitirely by Drum & Knowledge of Parallel Thought.
