Blind Vision in Plain Sight, The Reemergence of Vi City
Chicago’s very own from the Wild Hundreds, Vi City returns to rap. Crafting a sound that captures the pain and hope of a youth striving to make a better way, combined with the ambition and skills to actually have made it out, the celebratory tones reign supreme on this wave of sound for the veteran rapper, songwriter and producer.
Vi’s introduction to the game came via working with Mathaus Ent. & Chilly of the 1st & 15th label in conjunction with Lupe Fiasco. Shortly after, he connected with DJ Skee to release a mixtape under Skee’s Skeeter’s TV label. His next stint came working with St. Louis’ own, Nelly, co – penning the hit Country N**** Fly (CNF).
In the midst of acquiring a deal with Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG), Vi wrote on and featured on “Some Ish” by Sir Michael Rocks ft. Twista off of his #1 debut solo album “Banco.” Along the way, he co-produced and wrote with the iconic producer duo Da Interz (Tuo Clark & Kos who’s worked on Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, and Nas).
Vi also has music placed on the hit show Empire.
“On God” pays tribute to this generations’ current sound with hard hitting bass drums and surly slick rhymes to pass the time. Highlighted by the imperious vocals laid by Justin Bieber’s right hand man Harv, “On God” is sure to help you maintain your fresh.
