Born In Jamaica , raised in one of Toronto's Largest housing projects, Lava has graduated from the school of hard knocks which has earned him O.G. status in the streets as well as the industry. He first erupted on the scene in 1999 with a blazing hot single entitled "Splifted / Mirror Mirror" which got heavy rotation on every hiphop radio station in Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. The single even spilled over into NYC and London with virtually no marketing budget or campaign. OG Lava's first show was at Varsity Arena for a crowd of 7000 people from all over the US and Canada. The crowd was rocked into a frenzy by this rugged, powerful and majestic wordsmith bringing the real issues of the community and humanity onto the big stage. After opening up for Erykah Badu and Common in Chicago, that's when OG Lava realized that he had something that the world want's and needs and to avoid being pimped by the industry he decided to regroup and organize properly with the right team. Now it has come time for the volcano to erupt on the scene with a new EP and flaming sword that is sharper than ever!
