The Austin 100: Haviah Mighty

Haviah Mighty.
Haviah Mighty.

Hometown:Toronto, Canada

Genre:Hip-Hop

Why We're Excited:Canadian rapper Haviah Mighty has credentials to burn: She's landed a song on HBO's Insecure, won a national talent competition, found success with the hip-hop trio The Sorority and taken home the 2019 Polaris Prize for her most recent solo album, 2019's 13th Floor. In "Blame," she proves equally adept at breezy confidence, rapid-fire spitting, sneering menace and laconic cool, all wrapped up in a drawl of a chorus that'll get stuck in your head for days.
