Vic Da Baron
His brother, Vitani Teflon, also brought him along to local studio sessions and helped introduce him to the scene. In November 2007, Vic released his first solo mixtape 12-02-81 : The Beginning and also has features on The Comrades: Street Album, Hustlehauliks: Jak’n Beats Volumes 1 & 2 and Nexus: The Connection. But it is his debut album, History In The Making, that brings serious heat. The first album off his label, Grindstone Ent., features Bay veterans E-40, Turf Talk, Numskull of Da Luniz, and Southern rapper, Prince Bugsy.
It also features top-notch production from 6Fingers, Jallah, Frank Stacks, A. Rishwain, Kevin Bedford, and Insane. His killer combination of lyrical intensity and raw delivery is reminiscent of some of his strongest influences Redman, Rakim, 2Pac, and De La Soul. Vic is also largely inspired by the talent of his late mother and the sounds he grew up on: Reggae, Gospel, 70’s Soul, 80’s Synth-Funk, and the grunge of the 90’s.
A true showman with the swagger of Frank Sinatra on and offstage, Vic Da Baron engages his audience like a seasoned pro. He is currently working on his sophomore album with artists like San Quinn and Redman. Evidently, Vic Da Baron has garnered respect from hip-hop artists and fans alike and is continuing to create a buzz in the industry. History In The Making maintains the heat, voracity, integrity and pure skill he has demonstrated since, "THE BEGINNING." Read more on Last.fm.
