Outrageous Xclusive: AVE


well who is AVE?
Repping the borough that birthed Hip Hop, Bronx rapper AvE plans to bring his hood back to rap prominence. "I feel like the Bronx has been forgotten in the game: Everybody can look at New York as the mecca of hip hop but it's almost like the Bronx isn't included when they start naming what boroughs are hot. I got love for my city but everyone names Brooklyn, Harlem, Queens, Staten island and the Bronx seems to be left out. I want to shine some light back on the borough that started it all." Since the age of sixteen, AvE has been putting in work towards that goal. With a versatile style, energetic flow, and what he calls a "New-New York Swag", AvE also has the potential to bring his entire city a much-needed injection of originality. Although AvE's stylistic roots are in New York, his music has universal appeal that no one can categorize, and just about anyone can relate to. Growing up in a two-parent hispanic household during Hip Hop's golden era, AvE first became a student of the rap game listening to legends from Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick to Big L, Big Pun, the Notorious B.I.G., and Nas.

AVE is working on a Mixtape which he plans to release in early 2010. The Mixtape, which will be more like an street album, will be named M.O.E.T (Music Over Every Thing), "Killer" is the lead single.
