Brooklyn emcee Serious Voice carries every essence of BK and New York in every step she takes. Rooted in her Christian beliefs and her experiences growing up, Serious Voice brings the pain and hardship she’s dealt with and turned it into honest no holds barred hip-hop music. Inspired by the legendary Queen Latifah’s line in UNITY “Who you calling a b*tch” Serious Voice at a young age knew she wanted to take over the rap game. Fast forward a few years and a mission trip to South Africa would have Serious Voice take the stage and garner a number of fans off top. This one opportunity mixed with her drive, led her to create her first two originals tracks and has our heroine performing all over the regions of New York: Brooklyn, Harlem, Queens and more.
Serious Voice’s childhood was filled with abuse, at home and absent parents which would harden any individual. These hardships pushed Serious Voice to live with her mother’s older sister and she was figure to instill confidence in our heroine to begin her artistic takeover. This confidence and brutal honesty shines on every track we get from Serious Voice. There is no mincing of words here, if you can’t handle the heat, she’s going to give it to you anyway. Serious Voice would take this newfound confidence and unfortunately be met with rejection, that she almost believed. Enter “Shofar”. It’s a beautiful thing when the pain you face and endure leads you to clarity. “Shofar” is Serious Voice’s debut album and introduction as she weaves in and out of different sounds and lanes.
Still our heroine hadn’t reached her final form, we would see Serious Voice explode onto the scene gaining award nominations and collaborations that even I can’t speak on yet. Racking up over 20K streams in her tenure and rocketing toward 25K, Serious Voice is an embodiment of strength and passion that will not be moved. Further, we would hear Serious Voice on Spike Lee's She's Gotta Have It on Netflix and see her perform on Sway In The Morning, SXSW, McDonald’s Gospel Fest with Tina Campbell, Hezekiah Walker & others. Last year she touched Canadian soil with her Nameless Tour. The Press couldn’t deny covering her either with features in Essence Magazine, This Is 50, Hot New Hip Hop, and Jam The Hype and making the cover of Refocused Magazine.
Serious Voice has shown and proven herself at every turn of her career and by the looks of it she is just getting started. In 2020 Serious Voice plans on releasing an EP called “Beautiful” that intentionally focuses on affirming Black women and showing gratitude to everyone who has supported her thus far. Serious Voice has stormed out of New York and is coming for your town next, don’t get left behind.
