Interview with rapper VNGNC3

VNGNC3 is a rapper I found on soundclound a couple days ago because his track “Xanta” popped up after one of the songs I was playing. The song “Xanta” is catchy and on trend, and I could really see some potential in what I was hearing so I included him in the round of emails I was sending out that day.

To find out more about this up and coming artist, and to hear some of their music, scroll down.

Please list any official projects and videos?
-expect my debut mixtape “In Year 2180” to drop late spring or summer time on all platforms, and Music video for “xanta” going on world star this summer
How did you come up with your rap name? Have you had any other rap names?
 -cus this year im out for Vengeance, VNGNC3 for short. stems from heartbreak over bitches
What jobs have you had before this rap shit?
-yea I worked at a car dealership and a dentist office lol
Whats the craziest story from rapping u got so far? Anything from an after party,  touring, etc. 
-the best thing so far was getting invited to SXSW, my first show is on March 11th

Where are you from? Does that any influence on your music? 

-Im from Delaware/ PA but I don’t think where I am from really influences my music. I mean I grew up listening to other rappers from NOLA, Chicago and New York

Are you involved in your local rap scene or no?

-yeah I been working with a few local artist and am affiliated with the group CSD with Dubwah, Feddy, Clint billion

How old are you?

-just turned 21

What’s the dopest (coolest) thing to happen to you since you started rapping and releasing product?

-just seeing the positive feedback and seeing people listen to my music

The production you find to rap on beats is pretty fired. Who are your favorite producers you been working with?

-Cash money AP, Cormill my young bull Michael barone samples some beats for me that aren’t out yet, my man Jaybee produced the beat for “XANTA”I just feel that I have a good ear for beats and melodies so I just been using youtube but it gets annoying and im trying to generate my own sound, so in the future im looking to collaborate with established producers that I fuck with like captain crunch, 16yrold, kideva, Charlie shuffler, smokeasac.

What are your goals? 

I really wanna reach my fans and help people who feel lonely then hopefully to make xxl by 2019, work with producers that are house hold names and work with artists that have had the most influence on my music.

What did you do 2day?

popped a xan, trapped a bit, lol smoked n wrote some music lmaoooo

I see your going to be performing at sxsw? How did that come about? 

I only been rapping for 7 months now so I built my catalogue of music and just knew SXSW was one of if not the best ways to get exposure (shout out SXSW) seeing that carti, pump, xxx, ski, smokepurp, reggie mills, rich the kid, and tay-k all performed there before they really got recognized so I jumped on the opportunity sent in my debut song and it was a wrap.

What are your plans for 2018?

tryna win this march 11th show/ contest so I can open up for tekashi in NJ, kill SXSW and start getting some big exposure and like with house hold artist. im trying to make timeless music in 2018.
