INTERVIEW: Harvey Stripes w/ OhverlyCritical.com

Harvard chops it up with OhverlyCritical.com. Link to the full interview below…

TALK TORONTO: HARVEY STRIPES TALKS FASHION, HIS IDEAL WOMAN, DRAKE V. COMMON BEEF & THE HIP HOP SCENE IN CANADA

The music industry can be unforgiving, where first impressions can make or break you and where your grind determines your shine being an independent artist is no easy task. You can easily become washed away in the sea of senseless aspiring rappers or be a rare case like Harvey Stripes who has managed to turn ripples into sound waves in the Canadian ‘indy’ hip hop scene. OHverlycritcal.com caught up with the man himself to gain insight on his music and career OH!

Harvey Stripes is
Harvey Stripes is an entrepreneur, hard-working, honest *laughs* I feel like I’m writing a resume. I’m just me, you know? I just try to keep it 100% real as possible to my fans and my team
Most people are unaware that you were once part of a group called Deuce-Deuce, how have you evolved musically since parting ways with them and how was the transition from being part of a group to being a solo artist?

Deuce Deuce is a group I started back in the days. About three years ago I decided to become a solo artist, I came out to Toronto, and I definitely feel like it helped me grow as an individual, not just in music, just as a person, taking up responsibilities on myself, starting up my own label, my own team, D&D music group; Musically, just taking on a project like ‘A Dolla & A Dream’ mixtape, or taking on new songs or bringing ideas to the table, it’s just myself.

I have nobody to fall back on to add to the chemistry of the song, I also can’t blame anybody for anything that fans would be disappointed in. It’s more pressure on me, but I think I work best under pressure which I love. So it’s been a great journey as a solo artitst and it’s something I’ll never regret.
