A 2002 EP was circulated through the Boston area and received critical acclaim, but the disc was not actually replicated officially. In 2003, after having dropped out of NYU a year earlier, VICE linked up with producer, The Arcitype, and the two immediately began making track after track. At this point, it was clear that an album was in the works, and stirred up by the criticism of skeptics, VICE wryly named the album "Career Suicide." Since then VICE has been no stranger to the stage. He has performed at some of the Northeast's most reputable venues, such as The Middle East Downstairs, Harper's Ferry, and The Bowery Poetry Club. VICE even had the opportunity to perform inside the general assembly hall at The United Nations in 2007 for their International Day Of Peace celebrations.
VICE has had the opportunity to share the stage with some of Hip Hop's greatest legends including Raekwon of Wu-Tang, N.O.R.E., Made Men, Edo. G, Immortal Technique, Freeway, Styles P, M.O.P., Dead Prez, Rapper Big Pooh, Skyzoo, Torae and more. With multiple albums under his belt, tracks off his latest LP, "James And The Giant Beats" featuring hip hop legends Kool G Rap, Edo. G and Killa Sha burning up radio across the country and internationally, his recent selection as one of URB Magazine's Next 1000 Artists, and his selection as one Hip Hop Official's Artist of the Week Battle finalists, VICE can only foresee himself as a powerful voice for a generation who may rather remain silent.
