Haviah Mighty didn’t need to change her birth name when she decided to dedicate her career to music. In fact, Mighty couldn’t be more accurate a word to describe the 26-year-old artist, named one of XXL’s15 Toronto Rappers You Should Know in 2019. Raised in a musical household in Brampton, Ontario, Mighty started singing at the age of 4, rapping at 11, and producing at 15. Well-known for being one of the four MCs who make up The Sorority —a hip-hop group born during an all-female cypher on International Women’s Day in 2016 —Mighty is making equally large waves as a solo artist.
Haviah’s explosive live show, filled with in-your-face intensity and her fast, technical flows continues to carve out spaces that boldly defy gendered expectations for women in hip hop.
