Wavy C pulls no punches with new single ‘Heavy Weight’
MORENO VALLEY, CA – Like many aspiring artists within hip-hop, Wavy C started his journey all the way from the bottom. But Wavy C isn’t like all the other aspiring artists. His voice, his style and his career aspirations are all unique and one-of-a-kind. And after years of working his way to the top, his new music is gathering momentum and gaining major attention across the U.S.
His most recent single, “Heavy Weight,” already has tens of thousands of views on his YouTube channel, with some play on radio stations along the West Coast as well. He said that the song is a statement piece that lets people know that he’s serious about his music career and he has the kind of sound and style that people should pay attention to.
“When I wrote the song, it was a down point in my life,” he said. “I had just been dropped by my management team. I could have walked away from music and given up, but this song came to me and I knew that I wasn’t gonna quit. So this song is me letting everybody know that I’m coming. I’m a force to be reckoned with. I’m coming to know things down with no regard.” Wavy C first started rapping in 2013 when his younger brother Fred encouraged him to explore his natural talent for poetry. He needed an emotional outlet at the time as he’d just been kicked out of school and was living from motel-to-motel, or even out of his car, for the better part of a year.
“I never moved back home and I always grinded for what I have,” he said. “I turned myself into a boss. I had some buzz in 2015 when I dropped my first single, ‘Playa Playa,’ but then in 2017, management dropped me. So everything I do now is by myself. I’m the true definition of independent. My style is a little aggressive, but my voice smooths it out. And I talk about my struggle in my music, and how to get through it. I want my music to be known for motivating people. I started all the way from the bottom. I didn’t know my birth parents, and I eventually got kicked out of the house and had no place to live. I believe that you have to do what you have to do to get where you want to be. And so when people hear my music and my name, I want them to see a guy who grinds and does what he says he’s going to do – and hopefully that motivates everybody. No matter where you come from, you can be anything you want to be. You don’t have to follow the so-called rules of life.”
Wavy C said he’s following up “Heavy Weight” with a second single called “Mud,” which features Blvck Lefty. Similar to “Heavy Weight,” “Mud” tells the story of where he comes from and literally pulling himself straight out of the dirt. Both songs are the first releases from an upcoming mixtape called “Wait a Minute,” which he said he hopes to release before the summer.
