19 year old Virginia hip-hop artist, Miah Travis has made quiet a buzz this past year with the releasing of his track 1999, and his soulful track, Mona Lisa. This year, Miah’s name has continued to grow as he released a track called “Caged Bird// Channel Surfing” featuring a Virginia singer named Vesta and we also got word that he’s expected to drop his debut EP called “Loose Ends” very very soon! Today he’s finally here to debut his first ever music video.
About Mona Lisa: “Mona Lisa has multiple meanings. For starters, the idea of the whole song is to paint a beautiful picture through your own struggles, thus the reason the cover art for the actual track is an open canvas. On the other hand, the story I decided to speak on was my growing up in the church, being troubled by my sinful ways, and rather distraught by the idea of religion. The idea of having to pay for a blessing is central to the track, as preachers tend to use offering as a source of exploitation, influencing believers to believe that in order to be blessed, I must be able to pay my way. This video is a bit artsy and rebellious, in a sense” says Miah.
