Coming out of the Northside of Houston, Kleva
was born to Mexican-American parents in the
Aldine Mail Route area and started rapping at
the very young age of 8. He was influenced early
as he watched his older brother tour the country
during his pursuit of the rap game. He was also influenced by his brother's crew, Hardheads, who felt like a second family to him. Kleva took his career in music a step further at age 14 when he started dropping his own mixtapes and finally started to develop his sound. His upbringing heavily influenced his style, but don’t let this MC make you think his criminal minded lyrics are the extent of his intellectual abilities. He graduated with a bachelor degree from University of Texas in Austin, TX. and also reppin’ the Omega Delta Phi fraternity.
“Hey, I just want to make money to pay off my student loans. Ha! I wanna put on for my people. If you can relate to me in anyway, whether that be that we lived on the same street or we’re the same ethnicity or maybe you sat in a class with me once, then you my people. I came to the conclusion that I love to entertain, perform, and create. I have respect for all artists of every kind. I always say it's dope to be able to create something from scratch and bestow it upon the world. It would have never been there if it wasn’t for you. Be proud of that. Even if it is just an aluminum foil swan you made at Freebirds. Nah, but fa real, the little dudes in the hood influence me. I know their struggle, me and my dudes were them. I want them to look at me and be like, 'Kleva use to stay right there off of AMR and Fern Meadow and he did it. I can do it too'. Whether it be me being in college or they see me tryna do my thing with this rap shit. They influence me. Whatever you wanna do, do it. Everybody gonna tell you 'no' except yourself, so if you sittin’ there doubtin’ yo shit, you already lost. I wanna kick down barriers and tell my own story, unfiltered and raw."
Kleva currently teamed up with indie label and brand experts, Street Science Ent. Based out of Houston, TX.. Street Science which is a collaborative of Industry Influencers united to Develop Musicians Hitting the Mainstream.
