L-A-V is a Bronx-bred, PuertoRican-American Underground Hip-Hop artist, with a dark style that intimately details his past, present and future of tragedy and triumph. Most notably and recently, L-A-V has made his acting debut on Telemundo’s hit court T.V. show Caso Cerrado. He has also opened for Duck Down Records’ own Sean Price and battle rapper Nems from MTV2’s Fight Club.
With his buzz heightening as a result of successful showings in local showcasing events throughout the city; L.A.V. appeared on Video Music Box, displaying an incomparable skill during the first installment of 16 Bars–Just Gimme The Mic Cypha, hosted by Debra “Coco” Slater and “Uncle Ralph” McDaniels.
He has also gone on to earn a feature in Da Inphamus Amadeuz’s Artist 2 Watch column of iget@em Online Magazine, in addition to radio play via 91.9 FM, and Wu World Radio (Wu Tang’s official online radio station, hosted by DJ Intrigue).
Adding to his resume, L-A-V has been a guest on Bizarre’s World Radio show, (hosted by the legendary Bizarre of Eminem’s Rap Group D-12), receiving a quotable co-sign from the veteran:
“You remind us of an early Dirty Dozen. Now it’s time for you to get to the next level.”
And that’s exactly what L.A.V. intends to do, winning Third Place on Amateur Night, at the Apollo Theater on May 7th, 2014
