The artist Vic has an immense back catalogue of tracks for you to check out over on Soundcloud. His music has a mellow and fairly vintage sound to it, bringing about those feelings of nostalgia from the days of classic hip-hop vibes. The music is pretty uplifting to listen to, the kind of backdrop that brings you outside of yourself, accompanied by the sort of rap performance that sounds genuine, full of character, and in many ways effortless. Performance comes naturally to Vic, his voice was made for this; the smooth and natural expression of these lyrics will draw you in, and the good vibes created by the music will hold you there.
Bout That Life has a brilliantly classic sound to it, musically – a little like the first few huge r&b meets hip-hop tracks of the 90’s, but with something undeniably fresh about it. The performance throughout has such a flawless flow to it, the voice itself bringing that notably unique tone, a touch of that real life gravel in the vocal, adding massively to the overall effect of the music. You know the sound once you’ve heard it, and there’s a hell of a lot to get stuck into once you’ve discovered his work. Behind those vocals you get a vast and varied array of synths and beats that will make you feel hyped and ready for the summer. Among the leading vocal performance, you get to know the artist a little, you get used to the style and the sound, the lyricism – realizing pretty quickly that there’s a lot to like about this music, and a whole lot to get addicted to.
This particular track touches on real life in a huge way, there’s talk of motivation and dedication to the cause, talk of where you came from and what you’re about – the realness is a massive part of it all, and when you fuse it with those good vibes embedded in the music, it’s a winning combination. The hook section of this track is inescapably memorable, the melody casts it’s spell on you, and once it’s in your head it’s there for good – likely to bring you back for more soon enough. Vic’s entire catalogue of music is more than impressive. Well worth checking out.
