With an unmistakably electrifying delivery and powerful vocal punch, HUNGRY (formerly Young Hungry), is a hip hop artist hiphopcanada.com describes as “fierce and honest”. Hailing from Vancouver, BC, Canada, this versatile veteran is a solo artist and member of NORTHWEST DIVISION with Stealthbomb’s JUNK.
No stranger to the booth, HUNGRY’S first appearance on record came on Household Records 2010 project The Grand Entrance, followed by a string of Northwest Division albums and mixtapes
NWD (2011), RapBetterPartyHarder (2014), Stay Sharp 1 (2014), 2 (2015) and 3 (2017), and Orange and Black (2016)
Power Hungry (2018) is the artists first solo outing and it does not disappoint.
Add multiple KOTD rap battle appearances, battle championships at Rent Money 14 and Game Over 2, as well as a 1st place finish in Seattle at Coast To Coast Live in 2017, and it’s no surprise that HUNGRY is an established artist with a history of demonstrating his skills in competitive formats. HUNGRY has also toured throughout Canada and the US, sharing the stage with the likes of JUICY JAY, YELAWOLF, MGK, RIFF RAFF, FREDDIE GIBBS, RITTZ, CYHI DA PRYNCE, ACTION BRONSON, A$AP MOB, and ROYCE DA 5’9 to name a few.
When not on the road, HUNGRY balances being a father to his son he had in 2011 and working as an Assistant General Manager at Vancouver’s most popular live music venue, FORTUNE SOUND CLUB.
As 2018 gets under way, HUNGRY has big plans including the release of two solo albums, Power Hungry and one yet to be named. He also has plans to release singles featuring OVO affiliate and rising Toronto star PRESSA. A full Canadian tour is also in the works with dates set to be announced in the coming weeks. It is an exciting time in HUNGRY’s life. His pen has never been deadlier, his live performances have never been more dynamic and the music industry is taking notice. With the release of Power Hungry this year, HUNGRY is almost guaranteed to cement himself as one of Canada’s top hip hop acts.
