From live bands to synthesized club music, the Midwest’s music identity spans from pop to soul, country to jazz, rock to hip hop. In Minnesota specifically, legendary musicians like Prince and the band Mint Condition branded the state internationally through years of quality music. In 2012, Envy is poised to bring even more positive attention to the Minneapolis sound with his own brand of radio-friendly hip hop.

In 2008 after debuting at 3 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip Hop chart, and hitting 1 on the Hip Hop/R&B Single Sales chart, Envy’s single “Ringtone” enjoyed an impressive five-week run on the Hot Single Sales charts, hitting 16 in early June 2008. Envy began his rap career very early in life. His older sister taught him how to put the words together, and compliments came from every direction as the budding MC honed his skills. Sadly, Envy’s sister passed away when he was just 17, which gave him even more reason to take the music seriously.

Since charting #1 on Billboard and #6 on Radiowave in 2011's smash single "Stagga Dance," Envy has placed his music on top TV shows and major movie soundtracks padding his resume with hit songs and becoming a dominant force in the publishing game. Now in 2012-2013 with his lengthy publishing resume and his polished artistry, Envy is determined to set the industry on fire. Stay tuned for his sophomore album “Upper Echelon” coming 3/1/13 featuring artists like: Cyhi The Prynce & Slim from 112. Be on the lookout for his new hit single with Dos Ft. Cyhi The Prynce titled "Girlz Like 2 Party" on iTunes now and the video coming soon.
