Booking platforms like SXSW isn’t the only thing on the mind of a young waymaker. In Preparation for his second EP, “So Below,” 414 Native Huey V has been strategic with his releases from the drop of his single “After the Deal” two months ago, stamping his placement as a WHMG member and overall rising star, to partnering with Milwaukee’s City Year and Adidas Sound Labs in Chicago for a school tour in alignment with the release of his newest Single. “More Love” is an homage to those who have fallen due to gun violence in the city. Huey V provides multiple little narratives for different scenarios that collectively paint the picture of the reality here for many, including himself despite his own efforts and success. With lines like, “..Cant say I’m proud of where I’m from but I’m a product of it, I know a nigga who used to hoop, he like Iman Shrumpert, knew he was a shooter but he grew up and forgot his jumper..,” the existence of Milwaukee’s talent is verified but we also have some imagery of the consequences of lost hope. To aid in the prevention of more lost hope, the young rapper went on a small tour from Rufus King Middle School in Milwaukee to Curie High School in Chicago to give students an opportunity to hear his new song but more importantly to sit with them and discuss the reality of their stress and how to handle it. With Huey V being a Milwaukee Native, but even more so a Midwest kid, his inspiration may be the spark that dwindles down the constant pain that is heard about so much in songs like “More Love.”
