Ottawa-based rapper VNCHY just released "19+," the first single off of his forthcoming Neverland EP.
The track has the young rapper spitting intense rhymes over his deep, raspy voice, which complements the dark but elegant production by Prezident Jeff.
"His voice sounds somewhere along the lines of Sticky Fingaz or Nine, with a little bit of a Dr. Dre undertone," said HipHopCanada of Ottawa-based rapper VNCHY, who just released "19+," the first single off his forthcoming NeverlandEP. The track has the young rapper presenting his rugged rhymes and deep, raspy voice atop dark but elegant production by Prezident Jeff, whose credits include Little Simz and Kevin Gates. "19+" premiered via EARMILK, who said, "With swirling, haunting vocals and fantastic lyrical content and flow, we're impressed at how incredibly far the young talent has been able to get in his short life-span. We can't stop playing this, and neither will you."
"During '19+' I was in a very rebellious mentality," VNCHY explains. "The very title speaks to the idea of a 'transitional phase,' however, that phase is yet to be fully understood in capacity. During the creation process I had newly turned 19 and felt that while those around me viewed such a phase as a time to party and exploit all the freedoms that come with being a legal adult in Canada, all I wanted was to exercise my other wants and desires. I wanted to exercise such desires as running my own business with my own personal team. I wanted to properly put my family and team on a level we all desired. However, my goals didn’t finish there for I have bigger goals and bigger plans at such a young age. Progression has and always will be a must."
VNCHY has opened for the likes of Big K.R.I.T. alongside Two-9 and has performed alongside Post Malone on his White Iverson Tour, and now, at the ripe age of 19, he's ready to take his distinct sound to the spotlight. Stay tuned for his Neverland EP, releasing later this summer.
VNCHY and his MVMNT Collective team are hosting a 19+ event in Toronto tonight, June 5th at Sterling Lofts.
