Los Angeles based Latina rapper Reverie recently released her new video for her single “High Stakes”. The song was produced by her brother and longtime collaborator, Louden Beats.
Reverie is a world-touring rapper/fashion designer/entrepreneur who cut her chops as a graffiti writer, battle rapper, mc. She’s toured and shared stages/festivals with a few icons in hip-hop such as Psycho Realm, Cypress Hill, Brother Ali, Living Legends, Delinquent Habits, and more.
She traveled down to Medellín, Colombia to shoot her new video (shot by Estudio de Papeles). Watch below and listen on your favorite platform.
Reverie was raised by a single mother in Northeast Los Angeles, Highland Park. Her household was full of dysfunction & she ran away for the first time in the 3rd grade. Her poetry was always her safe haven. She frequented the school counselor, detention & was suspended often. Despite her behavioral issues, she maintained good grades & even had her poetry & art published. In the 7th grade, Reverie discovered “underground hip hop” & her poems transitioned into raps.
In high school, Reverie obsessed over graffiti, which lead to her first arrest & fights, which eventually got her expelled from school. She began kicking it with a gang & heavily abusing drugs to mask her depression. Louden, her brother & now producer, was selling crack to feed his heroine addiction, got stabbed & shortly after was sentenced to 1 year in a juvenile detention center.
In hopes of a second chance at life, Louden & the family moved to Washington, where they began to record music. In 2009, they released Reverie’s first mixtape ever, ‘Castle In The Air,’ and within 24 hours, it got 3K+ plays. It was then that they realized their music could become something much bigger.
Fourteen chronicled projects later, Reverie regularly tours all over Europe & USA & has dedicated fans around the globe. She has cultivated an organic, cult-like following, which she calls ‘The Satori Mob,’ which is also the name of Reverie’s urban wear clothing brand. Hip hop saved her life.
