A cinematic collection of infrared energy.
In the streets of Harlem, music has always played a very important role in its culture and the upbringing of its youth. From the likes of Big L, to Dipset, to A$AP MOB, Harlem has always found its way to become a sort of epicenter for new sounds and fashion trends that have taken the world by storm. Hass Irv is one of the most buzzing artists from the “new school” of rappers who are taking the Harlem sound and helping push it to new boundaries, all while maintaining INFECTIOUS live energy and performance that is hard to match and/or replicate. His stage presence is paralleled by his musical work ethic as well, and his latest release “Red Rum” produced by Yung Belt shows it.
As an independent artist, Hass Irv sees the opportunities NFTs offer creatives.
“NFTs are giving artists the capability and realization that the power has always stood behind the art, artists and the community it’s creating. I believe NFTs are allowing artists to receive advanced revenue streams and paving the way to disrupting the music industry as a whole.”

Born to a Guinean mother and Malian father, Hass was sent to Africa at a young age before returning to Harlem at 7. Upon his return he did not know English, which led to an adjustment period of creating his distinguished identity.
He embraced the rich cultural history in music and fashion of his native borough. Before he was known as one of the next leaders of the new school. After making the transition to college, he realized his passion for music. This led to being handpicked by Pusha T for the 1800 Seconds album which highlighted ten up-and-coming artists from around the country. Dubbed the “lightning rod” by Push himself, Hass Irv continues to live up to the definition.
Continuing to build on his success, Hass has released several thriving records as well as had his song Secrets placed on HBO's acclaimed series Euphoria. Hass Irv has also made an impact in the fashion world being featured in **Gucci’**s collaborative collection with Harlem fashion icon Dapper Dan.
These vast victories all lead up to Hassy’s release of his debut record, “All Day” which was later remixed by Chicago artist, G Herbo, for his mixtape No Patience. Hassy continues to build his brand through his passion for fashion and music. He is pioneering the new hip hop culture and is setting his sights on becoming one of the greats.
