Toronto’s Haviah Mighty has been crushing everything she touches over the past few months but 2021 is looking like it’s going to be a big year. The rapper’s showcased her lyrical muscle even further on her last few releases including “Antisocial” with Old Man Saxon that arrived in January.

This week, she dives deeper into her Caribbean heritage with the release of her latest single, “Obeah.” Released along with a powerful visual that includes a cameo from her father, Haviah reflects and honors the trust and spiritual connection she shares with her family.

“Being of Caribbean descent, I’ve heard many stories throughout my life of ‘Obeah man’ and ‘Obeah woman’ from family and friends, ‘Obeah’ being an occult power and celebrated secret religion which disturbs the natural flow of events by way of spells, spirituality and hidden practices,” said Haviah in a statement. “Though difficult to define, it is a religion of resistance, a belief that you can manipulate yours or other peoples’ destinies – often used in the context of those people that are close to you, but aspire to cause you harm by thought or action. This song, using this Jamaican reference, speaks directly to the idea that the energy around you can bring you down, and that sometimes it’s those that are closest to you that you need to be aware of.”

Lyrics

I praise the most high
Give thanks

(Hook) x 2
Watch dem friend deh
Watch who you keep close ya
Your glow up they phobia
Some boi come with Obeah
They would frown before they smile
And they ain’t down, they just behind ya
They would die before they ride ya
They ain’t really on your side ya

(Verse)
See if I met ‘em in the booth
And all that they said is in the proof
I see that they energy is loose
And I see the enemy in you
But when it’s a friend, I see a different picture
I think your identity is you
And when you say you always got me
I figure you’re telling me the truth – nigga
You see me coming out my doubt phase
And I accelerate without brakes
I feel you really trying to clout chase
I push my liquor down without chase
I’m already caught up nigga, word
I don’t chase, I catch
I just pree when a nigga move funny, so that
I don’t break my back
Boy relate, I can’t
I keep it real for my girls
I keep it real for my dogs, uh
Bet you don’t think I deserve
All of the things that I got, uh
You see me winning giving side eye
You say you happy for me but deep down inside
You’d probably kill me in a drive by (drive by shots)

Watch dem friend deh

Your glow up they phobia
Some boi come with Obeah
They would frown before they smile
And they ain’t down, they just behind ya
They would die before they ride ya
They ain’t really on your side ya

(Bridge – Mr. Mighty)
And these are the things that, when I reason with certain people, when I talk to certain people, I discover what they’re trying to do
Pretend like they’re friends. What you think they’re trying to do? They’re trying to unstabilize you
If you look to someone who is less off than you to give you advice, to make your life better, than you are making a big mistake
Once you know yourself, no man can trick you, you know?

(1/2 Hook) x 2
They would frown before they smile
And they ain’t down, they just behind ya
They would die before they ride ya
They ain’t really on your side ya

A same kinda Obeah business x 4
