Who is KVtheWriter?
KVtheWriter is a rapper-songwriter, artist, and author hailing from St. Louis, MO. KVtheWriter, known for her nationally award winning poetry book “Of Magic and Madness,” started writing poetry in grade school. She participated in a number of poetry slams throughout high school, and hosted a number of poetry events in college.
After her first year in college, she tragically lost her father to gun violence, and started a blog to help process her grief. Several writings from her blog have gone viral including “Sins of the Father,” “Losing Your Dad when You’re a Daddy’s Girl” and “Black Girl Magic, Depression, and Harry Potter.” These blog posts have been featured in several online blog outlets such as ForHarriet, Thought Catalogue, and Bust.
A few years after losing her father, another gun related tragedy struck the writer with the loss of her older brother Tyrell “Rell Finesse” Thompson. KV, once again, dived into the world of writing as a way to cope with her loss. She started off writing songs using beats she found on Youtube. Over time, she honed her songwriting skills and began creating lyrics to R&B, Rap, Soul, Pop, and Trap instrumentals. In 2018, she caught the ear of her college friend and producer Eric “Blair the Machine” Humphrey. Together, they created the melodic and lyrical sound she has on her newest project “Love Sucks!”
