“Driver” By Suavé Don't Play Put This Houston Based Artist On The Map



Suavé Don't Play is a hip hop artist hailing from Houston, TX. He has been recording music for over 10 years. Formerly a member of a hip-hop group, he is looking to make a name for himself as a solo artist. His musical influences include UGK, Big Moe, Kanye West, and Childish Gambino. His goal is to follow in the footsteps of the many great Houston artists before him and elevate the city's music scene to a new level.


“Driver” leads with an impressive beat, creative and spacious. Lyrically the track holds close to themes often touched upon in much of contemporary hip hop but there’s familiarity in these phrases and ideas. Suavé Don't Play’s flow grows to impress more and more as “Driver” pours through. A crisp and clean finish lets the rhythm and optimism of the whole thing fill the room in a bright and memorable fashion. Captivating lyrics hold tight to your attention, and ultimately there’s an energizing level of possibility and strength to the journey. A single listen to the track is nowhere near enough to truly grasp all of the lyrical and sonic details. “Driver” is absolutely worth a listen and puts Suavé Don't Play on the map in a big way!

Hey Suavé Don't Play! What can you tell us about your track “Driver? What does this project represent for you?

"Driver" represents a fresh start for me. This is my first song after a 3 year hiatus from making music and my first under this moniker. It's also a reflection on a situation I've found myself numerous times over the past 3 years. 


Where is the best setting to listen to “Driver”, and what do you hope people take away from it?

I would say anywhere you've got a drink in your hand and are surrounded by friends is a good setting to listen to "Driver." I hope people listen to it and hear something different than what they've heard before. 

If you had to pick just one song in your collection to adequately describe your sound, which song would you choose and why?

Well this is my first song but I think it is an accurate glimpse of what I want my sound to be going forward. I like choosing unique beats and to me "Driver" reflects that. I also like to utilize various flows and cadences and I believe "Driver" gives the listener a good taste of that.


What are your main aspirations as an artist going forward?

My main goal is to make music that is unique and that people can relate to. There is a lot of music out there, especially within the hip hop community, that sounds very similar. I'm hoping to buck the trend and bring something fresh to the table.


What other projects are you working on through the end of 2019?

I plan on releasing a full-length album by the beginning of December. The title is still a work in progress.
