Consider yourself introduced to Gavlyn, a rapper and songwriter hailing from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles who creates sharp hip hop tracks with a bite. With a staggering five solo records (Why Wait, Modest Confidence and From the Art just to name a few) under her belt released by Broken Complex, Gavlyn’s work ethic is uncanny. More importantly though, with such a huge catalogue of tracks – at no point is the quality compromised as the rapper delivers on each account.
As part of her COLORS session, Gavlyn treats us to an explosive performance of “Needs”. Soundtracked by a blistering beat penned by long-time collaborator and producer DJ Happa, Gavlyn wonderfully weaves her way through the vibey instrumentation with her slick yet equally powerful verses. With the infectious hook “What you want / What I want / What you need?”, it’s safe to say that you definitely need to watch this show – you won’t regret it! We hope that there’s more to come from Gavlyn in 2018, but for now though – tuck into “Needs” up top.
