2024 RAP ALBUM/EP OF THE YEAR | Haviah Mighty | | The JUNO Awards

Haviah Mighty has spent a lifetime developing her skills as a songwriter, producer, and performer, culminating in a style of profound introspection and socio-political critique. Her dynamic combo of rap, song, and instrumental transition seamlessly from hip-hop to soul to afrobeats, with a flow and cadence that transcends any expectations of genre. 2019 saw Haviah earn break-out success with album, 13th Floor, making her the first hip-hop artist and Black woman to win the Polaris Music Prize – but Mighty didn’t stop there. With her JUNO Award-winning, Stock Exchange (Nov. 2021), Haviah made history once again as the first woman to ever win within the Rap Album/EP of the Year category.

Most recently, Haviah was the only Canadian nominee at the 2022 BET Hip-Hop Awards within the ‘Best International Flow’ category. Recognition has spread internationally, garnering praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, Billboard, Pitchfork, GRM Daily, FADER, Hot New Hip Hop, and so many more. From performance invitations by massive European tastemaker, COLORSxSTUDIOS, to BBC 1’s Jack Saunders proclaiming “I just cannot find anything as good as Haviah Mighty”, to crushing the 5 Fingers of Death on the legendary show, Sway in the Morning – Haviah Mighty is unstoppable. Mighty pushes forward continuing to carve out spaces that boldly defy gendered expectations for women in hip-hop. Unyielding and irresistible – Haviah Mighty will be heard.
