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.
DNDMG affiliate and CMG singee Snootie Wild, who assisted Harvey on his song "Money Counter" from "In God We Trust", has released a new single called "Beetlejuise". Inspired by the comedy classic "Beetlejuice", the turn-up song is an ode to lean.
At the top of 2010, Harvey teamed up with Canadian R&B singer Jay Vado to drop his first international release with the song "Material Girl".
Touching on a topic to which many men and women can relate, materialism, Harvey questioned whether his material girl loves him more than she loves the Gucci, Louis Vuitton and money. He also said, at the time, the song promotes a female who is independent, appreciates the finer things in life, but can still rely on her man.
"It's just exploring the mind state of a materialistic girl," Stripes explained of Material Girl at the time. "The concept is really a 2010 version of the 'ashy to classy' story."

The big homie Yo Gotti's birthday bash is fast approaching. It all goes down on June 19 at 8 pm (doors open at 7). Gotti's latest flyer for the party revealed that two of his surprise guests are Rae Sremmurd and Rick Ross. If you're in Memphis, this is the place to be on Sunday.

DNDMG affiliate Tory Lanez, who has collaborated with Harvey on various songs over the years, including the recently released "Me and You" off "In God We Trust" has released a new dancehall inspired track. "Luv" is the second official single from the Toronto native's debut album, which he has now confirmed is titled "I Told You". It samples Tanto Metro and Devonte's classic song "Everyone Falls in Love."
It's the end of 2010 and Harvey Stripes wants to go out with a bang. He drops a video for his single, featuring now DNDMG artist Hooks, Must Be the Money. The Sharp Shooter-directed video features the beautiful Rosa Acosta and pays homage to Toronto with cameos from world renowned director Lil X, rap duo A-Game, rappers Famous and Richie Sosa, producer Beat Merchant, photographer Sean Getti and others.
In the music industry, associates come and go. But Hooks has been rockin' with Harvey Stripes since the early days and it's gotten him signed to the rapper's DNDMG label. Currently on tour with Harvey as he promotes "In God We Trust", on which he appears, Hooks is also puttin' in work. He was recently captured by Ty Black of ShotByTy in the studio. While we wait for Hooks to drop music, you can hear him on the CMG mix of "On Me", which also appears on Harv's "In God We Trust" and on "The Game" from the "Yours to Discover EP".
The big homie Yo Gotti seems to be everywhere these days. This weekend, he graced the stage at arguably one of the most well known hip-hop concerts, Hot97's Summer Jam. The New York radio station is known for a show full of surprises and in true fashion, DJ Khaled brought out Gotti to perform his big hit, "Down In the DM."

Harvey Stripes isn't the only one puttin' in work. His DNDMG signee Layla Hendryx recently dropped a new track: "Get It Fast". Produced by another Harvey Stripes collaborator and mega producer, Murda Beatz, the song features Layla showing her talent for singing and rappin'. Her unique voice and sound are complimented by the catchy production.
You can also hear Layla on Harv's "Yours to Discover" EP as well as his full-length release, "In God We Trust".
Towards the end of 2012, Harvey Stripes took a break from the gritty club bangers for which he had become known and ventured into the dance world with the single "Ghost". Featuring Canadian R&B singer-songwriter Dru, it told the tale of the ghost of a girlfriend past who continued to haunt Harvey.
For the video, director Cazhhmere took Harvey and leading lady Brittany Dailey down memory lane on a deserted, rural road.
"Ghost" appeared on Harvey's second full-length release, "A Penny and a Nightmare."
