"This shit off the top, man—like every other track," Duvy likes to declare at the top of his songs. Even if that statement weren't true, we'd still be impressed. The 18-year-old from Toronto's Jane and Finch neighbourhood has been on an absolute tear—since releasing his debut project Jane Babies in 2019, he's been serving up a steady drip of bangers, proving to be one of the city's most consistent young rappers. Taking more cues from the Atlanta's rap scene than Toronto's, he's got a Thugger-esque knack for bending his voice into a variety of different timbres and flows, all while spitting about the stark realities of street life over epic trap beats. Duvy started off 2021 hungry with an unfathomably hard track, "SouthWay," and he's just whetting his appetite: he promises to unleash some collabs with big producers and more singles in the lead-up to his highly anticipated album, slated for release this year. —Alex Nino Gheciu
