Emerging hip-hop artist, Vic Rivers is hailing from Queens, New York and is here to show the world that there is no such thing as boundaries when it comes to making music and the industry. Coming up, he drew inspiration from some of the game’s pioneers such as Tupac, Tech N9ne, Joe Budden, and Drake.
Finding solace in a multitude of genres – from hip hop to rock, pop, and more – Rivers’ flow and cadence proves that he’s not like your traditional rapper.
With his lyrics and expression being his cornerstone, his diversity within his music gives him leverage. In 2008, Vic established the Diversity Never Abandoned (D.N.A.) Collective where he brings light to mental health issues like depression and addiction.
His artistic ability to express his layered past produces vulnerable yet dark tracks like “The Haunting” and “Sometimes in April”. Utilizing his lyricism, he guides listeners through a period in his life where he dealt with the highs and lows of Las Vegas living. There’s no doubt the Queens emcee is paving his own lane within the underground emo-rap scene.
