Premiere: Huva – ‘(Friend Indeed)’

“I’m excited with the landscape of Irish hip hop. I think there’s a well nourished platform forming up now, with new sounds and that’s not taking anything away from the people that are the pioneers of it the likes of Redzer, Costello and many more.”

 

We’re happy to present the new video for ‘(Friend Indeed)’ by Irish hip hop artist Huva for the first time. According to Huva it’s a track about realising the worst in the people you love the most.

“We’ve all been through situations that we have had trust and love for someone, could be a partner could be a friend or a mentor, and sometimes we are too blinded by our admiration to see what a piece of shit they really are.

“The reaction to my music the last couple of months, it’s been very reassuring. That I can keep doing this and can only get better at it too.”

For Huva, the landscape of Irish hip hop is exciting, and while the new wave is what’s bringing it forward, looking back on the originators is important too.

“I think there’s a well nourished platform forming up now, with new sounds and that’s not taking anything away from the people that are the pioneers of it the likes of Redzer, Costello and many more. They paved the way for Irish hip hop out here. Now it’s up to us and the new generation to take what they started to the next level.”
