Last week's #TBT saw Harvey Stripes helping Meek Mill to set the scene for his Canadian tour dates in 2013. That same year, Harvey released his project A Penny and a Nightmare. To celebrate the release, which included Jeremih, Jadakiss, Juicy J, Travis Porter, Tory Lanez and more, he held a record release party in Toronto. Cameras were rolling.
It's hard to be believe it has been more than three years since Harvey Stripes helped Meek Mill set the atmosphere for some Canadian tour dates in 2013. Here's a look back at the behind-the-scenes and on-stage madness when the show stopped in Toronto.
The big homie Yo Gotti of CMG has dropped a new track with CMG signee Blac Youngsta. On "Wait for It" the two swap verses about...well, waiting, not waiting or making em wait for it.
Back in August 2013, Harvey dropped "Any Way You Want It" featuring R&B crooner Jeremih. The song was featured on his mixtape "A Penny and a Nightmare" its video was directed by Zac Facts and Cazhhmere. The performance video featured the exotically beautiful Gracie as Harv’s leading lady and unique cinematography that brought the sensual track to life.
Since dropping his surprise EP, "Yours to Discover" and latest full-length release, "In God We Trust" in March, Harvey Stripes has been on the go. From Atlanta to Miami to Atlanta and now to the Dominican Republic and back to Atlanta, the rapper has documented it all via his Instagram. Here are the latest shots.
For his first full-length release in three years, Harvey found a balance between the hunger of a young hustler and the comfort of a seasoned boss with “In God We Trust” (“IGWT”) — while also perfecting his artistry.
“IGWT” put only God ahead of the almighty dollar as the rapper explored topics straight from the hustler’s handbook. Regardless of the source of a listener’s income, Harvey said “IGWT” is the motivational soundtrack for chasing dollar signs.
Consisting of 12 tracks and two previously released bonus tracks, “IGWT” featured carefully selected guest appearances from Yo Gotti, Blac Youngsta, Snootie Wild, Troy Ave, Tory Lanez, Hooks as well as Layla Hendryx, a signee to Harvey’s Dollars Never Disappear Music Group.
Andrew Triple-A, Murda Beatz, Deli, Dunlap, J-Mak, Yankee, Pro Logic and Miamii, meanwhile, supplied production on “IGWT”.
Harvey recently let fans into his personal space when he shared some candid shots on his Instagram. The rapper has been on the road promoting his two latest projects, "Yours to Discover" and "In God We Trust."
DNDMG artist Layla Hendryx recently appeared in the video for local Toronto artist Minty Burns' video "Whole City". The multifaceted artist showcases her talents on the hook and on her own verse. You can also hear Layla on Harvey's "Yours to Discover" EP where she graces the song "We Did It".
Back in 2011, Harvey Stripes hooked up with director Jordan Tower for this video for the song "Shawty Got That" featuring R&B crooner Jason Derulo. Filmed on a Toronto rooftop, the video not only showcased beautiful women but a beautiful city as well.
It's been exactly three months since Harvey dropped his surprise EP, "Yours to Discover." With six songs, the release was called "one hell of an appetizer" by Vice's Noisey. Harvey, meanwhile, described it as a statement that defines his career.
“I wanted to give something to the fans that have been patiently anticipating ‘In God We Trust’. The streets have always supported me from day one, so it’s only right I give back," he said.
With production by Murda Beatz (Migos, 2 Chainz, Chris Brown, Young Thug), Soulja Boy (Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne), Pro Logic (P Reign, Machine Gun Kelly), Andrew Triple-A and Nav, the EP boasts a laid-back, trap-inspired sound that lends itself to Harvey’s street-proof lyrics. Guest appearances on “Yours to Discover” include Soulja Boy, long-time collaborator Hooks, Nav and Layla Hendryx, who is signed to Harvey’s DND Music imprint.
