Weaver is a Bristol-based hip hop artist, who has spent the last few years making the most of the city’s ever burgeoning scene, and carving out a decent niche for himself in the process.
Originally hailing from Guernsey in the Channel Islands, Weaver’s introduction to hip hop came through the usual teenage channels, with artists like 50 Cent and Eminem first piquing his interest in the artform. From there he gravitated towards what could be considered more conscious artists, such as Tribe and The Pharcyde. And it was arguably their influence which eventually helped him to form the style you hear today, as well as various homegrown voices, from artists like The Four Owls, Task Force and Loyle Carner.
Often jazzy in style and steeped in personal insight, Weaver’s raps with an honesty that strengthens the narrative in his music. More after-party than party, his penchant for the more laid-back feel ties in nicely with the reflective and sometimes introspective quality of his raps.
Despite still being relatively ‘new’ in the game, Weaver has already made his mark on the scene with a few releases, including his most recent Blue Cadence EP, which featured production from Bristol heavyweight, Baileys Brown (Potent Funk/Split Prophets/Blah Records). That release was preceded by a string of singles, and there have also been a few notable collaborations with Jimi Riddlz and Henry Jones.
Which brings us to now and while the future may not be that certain for a lot of artists, Weaver is still very much in the right mindset, with his creative drive shows no sign of dwindling. Solo material looms, including a hip hop focused stage production, as well as the release of more singles. He is also working on a new project with producer, Adam Baker (Fast Decline).
So with a wealth of new music and ideas still swarming, and a passion for the culture that will not waiver, it is clear that Weaver is only just getting started.
