Swave Sevah aka Swavy Krokett aka The Spitist, aka Anakyn Highwalker. Call him what you want, but once you hear this NYC native’s unmistakeable baritone and clever verses, you won’t forget him. Born and raised in Harlem, Swave started spitting rhymes at the age of 9. He studied martial arts and earned black belts in Tae Kwon Do and Shotokan. As a young man, he dreamed of someday making it to the NBA, but that faded as his passion and talent for music grew. “Hip hop swallowed me whole,” he says. Now Swave is one-third of the hip-hop group CVEES, who released their debut single “The Jump Off” in July of 2003.
