Miami’s own Maine Laveau is setting the tone in his city. His name Maine comes from Jermaine which is the name he was given at birth, Laveau comes from Nana Marie. Basically, everything is all in the family.
He started his career as an artist when he was a kid when he realized there was no hope. He chose to become an artist because he had faith in himself to create art, his sounds that later turned into visuals.
His universal style is considered to be described as camouflage. Because even when you think you got him figured out, he’ll ascend and hit you with a whole new flavor. The influences of his ancestors, his sound, his voice, and his chant. Those are all gifts that he uses as inspiration. A big influence comes from the culture of music itself which involves fashion, jewelry, cars, etc.
Recording his first song was like being born. He used to rehearse and practice from boy groups and football. So people would know exactly what to expect from him whenever he created music. The excitement before hitting the stage for the first time and the results from the audience definitely changed his point of view as a performer.
He describes the music seen in his city as a place of growth. However, some people act Hollywood and some just don’t want it as bad as you do. Yet, the ones that are connecting and working salute to those.
He recently dropped a new visual to his single “Judas” which was shot by visual director Wolf of Wolfstreet Films. As the visual reflects on the BLM movement, Laveau fearless approach to the music scene shows throughout every video. Randy Official, who he works with on a regular, bounces ideas back and forth with Laveau from time to time.
In the future, we could possible see Maine Laveau work with the likes of Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Danileigh, Meek Mil, Rod Wave, Plies, Fivio Foreign, Lil Uzi, Jaden Smith and many more.
