LA may be known for forging giants but don’t let rapper Vel the Wonder’s five-foot stature convince you otherwise; during any set by the Baldwin Park rhymer, audiences feel her thunderous voice rip through bar after bar with no sign of letting down. Growing up in a family of five all living in a single room and relying on public transportation, Vel developed a deep love for graffiti which served as an entryway into and an affiliation with the storytelling capacities of hip-hop. Her no-nonsense demeanor and passionate delivery demonstrate Vel’s unmatched ability to capture any feeling through her lyrics. Vel has grown through her music, never shying away from the stage and sharing them with hip-hop mainstays like Immortal Technique, Evidence, Psycho Realm and Benny the Butcher. With three releases over four years, Vel just dropped her fourth independent project, La Sena Ave (2019) which highlights Vel’s emotional lyricism over head bobbing hip-hop beats inflected with jazzy horn melodies. Vel will be heading out on an international tour this spring to share her experiences with the world and empower audiences through hip-hop before her debut on the Levitt LA stage!
