Aristotle once said, “Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom”. Ven is a living testament to this quote. The 27 year old California based hip-hop artist from Boston (MA) is not just another conscious rapper, but an illustrator of consciousness.

When it comes to conscious artists very few would expect to hear about self-awareness, meditation, and philosophy; yet this is exactly what Ven brings to the table in his music.

He aims to help us learn more about ourselves as he tries to free our minds from the fog and from cloudiness to clarity, Ven serves as a guide on a journey to enlightenment.

His debut album, Circa ’16, emphasizes mindfulness and introspection, and has even been deemed as "meditative rap" by some.

Whatever the label, Ven is definitely a unique artist with a unique sound.
