What’s up, Fam? I’m Johnny O. and once again it’s time for another new edition of Faygoluvers very own Underground Spotlight. This time our interview is with New Hampshire native and ten year vet, K. Daver. Driven by his political views, he delivers an aggressive lyrical style, but we’ll get in to all of that below.

So, let’s take a closer look at the artist known as K. Daver.

Johnny O: Can you start out with a little introduction for those who may not be familiar with you work?

K. DAVER: My name is K. DAVER. I’m from NH and have been doing this for ten years. I’ve performed all across the U.S.

JO: No one likes labels, but if you had to, how would you describe your style to perspective fans?

KD: Hard, aggressive music that tries to open the mind of the listener. Lyrical Rap over Rock instrumentals.

JO: A lot of your music touches on political aspects, why is this such an important element to you?

KD: I feel it’s needed because of the times we are in. So much is going on behind closed doors that people are losing their freedoms one by one. It probably also stems from the fact we pay income tax but large portions of that money goes to unnecessary ventures while people are dying from preventable diseases and hungry while people who do nothing but harm live wealthy.

JO: I’ve actually heard that your first release, “Death by Design,” actually contained a cure for HIV, can you tell us more about this?

KD: It can be found on the U.S. Government website. Whatever theory you subscribe to weather aids was created in a lab or transferred from Africa the fact remains the cure is there but only the “elite” receive treatment.

You can view it on this site.

We the people album cover

JO: Your latest release, “We the People,” has a more aggressive and unique sound, how did this come about?

KD: Before I started production on my new record I came back in contact with my old producer The Process and he sent me over a bunch of instrumental he’d been working on. They were to the left of what I was doing at the time and needed that shot in the arm to up my game.

JO: So, how has the response been for the new album?

KD: It’s been good. It’s my best work to date lyrically, performance, flows, structure, you name it.

JO: If I’m not mistaken, you were actually interviewed and featured in Murderdog magazine. How did this come about and how has it been to be seen in such a major publication?

KD: I sent in my record and a bio. They called me back about a week later to set up an interview. It was really cool because it was on my list of to dos.

JO: Recently, you released a video for the track, “Soldier of the Lost,” which featured Kinetik. Can you tell us more about how this collaboration came together?

KD: Kinetik is my homie. I love making music with him because they’re isn’t any b.s. file sharing. We get in the studio and make great music. Feels to me artists forget what it’s like to get in the studio and actually work on music and concepts instead of recording their verse and sending it back.

JO: You’ve had the chance to work with and alongside some major names in the underground, including Kottonmouth Kings, Ill Bill, AMB, Psycho Jesus and Twiztid just to name a few. Is there anyone out there that you would love to work with if you could?

KD: I’d love to work with Chino XL. I feel he is the most underrated rapper of all time. Also Jarred from Hed pe.

JO: Is there anything currently in the works for K. Daver that you could let us in on?

KD: Currently planning a tour in support of the new album.  I will also be releasing new music videos every month.

JO: If fans want to check out more your work, where can they find more?

JO: Who are you currently listening to?

KD: Not much these days. To focused on the product that I’m making. That’s not a knock to anyone but there just isn’t enough hours in the day.

JO: Who would you say have been your inspirations throughout the years?

KD: Early on psychopathic records was a big influence. Then when I heard Vinnie Paz it made me up my game lyrically. I can honestly say no other rapper has influenced me in a few years. When you take your influences early on and craft your art you’re the only completion after that. For me any way.

JO: It’s always nice to end on a good note, so how about a few shout outs before we go?

KD: Shout out to anyone who has ever supported what I do over the years. My team, who works hard everyday. Big ups to Faygoluvers and all the Juggalos. They hold it down at every show I do.
