Bavu Blakes
Bavu Blakes
Webster defines wordsmith in the form of a noun as a person who works with words; especially a skillful writer. Defined by those who write professionally as journalists, authors, newscasters or spin doctors - it is very much a verb. They wordsmith documents, speeches, quotes and letters. Many times this action involves finding more powerful, meaningful words that paint a picture and more clearly deliver a message.

Dubbed "One of Texas' brightest new stars" by legendary rapper The D.O.C., Bavu Blakes is the ultimate wordsmith by both definitions. This is an artist and writer so unique that he's the only man named Bavu -- meaning 'force' in Kiswahili -- in American history!

Equally adept at writing, performing and freestyling, Mr. Blakes offers both clarity and hype. While words and rhymes are clearly where his talents shine, he places equal importance on beats. By defining tracks in terms of mood, rhythm and melody, he makes the music sound better. Creating a sense of cohesion between the lyrics and beats, Mr. Blakes's music reveals this approach through clever, thought-provoking lyrics over diverse beats guaranteed to entice any listener's ear.

A fixture on the Texas scene since 2002 -- endorsed by artists ranging from Bun B and Chalie Boy to Bernie Worrell and Chali 2na -- Mr. Blakes is focused on success and married to his keep-em-guessing originality. Mostly concerned with longevity and substance, Blakes possesses the creativity and the hustle to make his talent pay dividends.

Mr. Blakes has performed with many artists including Snoop Dogg six times, Roots five times, Luda, Busta, E. Badu, UGK, Devin the Dude, Slick Rick, Slim Thug, De La Soul, Paul Wall & Chamillionaire, Common, Lil' Flip, Rakim, Blackeyed Peas, Anthony Hamilton, Swishahouse, The Coup, Chalie Boy & Da Ryno, Big Mike, DJ Krush, Crime Mob, DJ A-Trak, Z-Ro, Raheem Devaughn, Angie Stone, Dwele, Jurassic 5, Jeffrey Osborne, After 7 and ...
