What is your name?
VC, a lot of people want to know if the letters stand for something, but even though my friends try to fight me on this one, it’s just VC, I’m VC.
Where are you from?
T A M P A B A Y
Lived in the bay area my whole life, wouldn’t want it any other way.
How long have you been in the music industry?
Around 3 years now. Always been involved in music and writing as long as I could remember, but it was love at first sight when I finally picked up a mic and made a serious attempt.
What is your biggest music accomplishment?
So many little things that happen daily on this journey to me feel like the biggest wins so it’s hard to pinpoint a singular moment. Honestly the fact that I’ve been able to build a life around the thing I love and have any impact on another life through that same thing amazes me regardless of the scale.
What’s your next move?
I’m currently working on continuing to master this sound and vision I have for both music and life. But definitely getting these pizza rolls finished.
Are you working on any projects?
Funny one because that part definitely doesn’t stop. I have a thing for starting multiple entire project ideas at once as the inspiration hits, so the locker is full of countless worlds I wanna bring to light, they’ll come (;
Where do you see yourself in 1 year?
So much in sight for today that sometimes tomorrow is the wildest mystery. If I peek I see greatness, but I love the idea of chopping down each tree at a time til I open my eyes and realize the forest is clear.
Who inspired you to make music?
It’s always made me tick, but it was the moments where my mind was slipping through the cracks and music was without fail the glue that held me up that led to me falling obsessed.
What producers have you been working with?
I’ve spent the last year learning to produce and have made quite a bit of self produced tracks. Whenever I work with others it’s usually beats I find online that I really like, but I tend to do most of the creation solo.
Originally, J. Cole was my favorite artist that I focused a lot of my initial sound around. Overtime I explored myself and the idea of what makes my identity so “me” and it led me to reject the idea of a precise sound that I follow on each track. I went this route because I have never really fallen into singular categories and the music I create now definitely reflects my range of identity. Other influences would be Kanye, Kendrick, Tyler the Creator, it goes on forever to be honest.
What age did you start making music?
I’ve always written raps since I was very young, band kid in middle school, guitar, etc. But I started seriously putting together music when I had just turned 18, I’m 21 now.
What place/event do you wanna perform at?
Honestly, the dream stage is wherever my fans are. BUUUUT, I’d definitely wanna rock a rolling loud set.
Did anybody push you to make music?
Not initially, don’t come from a family of career musicians or anything so this was picked up on my own. I was definitely more pushed into a more traditional route.
What do you want the fans to take from your music?
You are more than one sound, one color, one emotion, you are every single moment that has happened and is yet to happen. Explore each and every inch of what makes you an individual. My music is just me doing the same thing.
