GET TO KNOW: VCNT

VCNT is a new RnB artist out of Baltimore. Just one song in, with "Thoughts", he has quickly gained local buzz and support. With The Weeknd's older music, 6lack, Tory Lanez, Partynextdoor, Drake, and The Neighbourhood as his main influences, he tends to lean towards a darker sound than your average RnB artist.

Born in 1995, he has grown up on a mixture of the more old school RnB groups that his parents loved such as Boyz II Men and New Edition, as well as more of the old school hip hop. Everything from the Lost Boyz, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Tupac, Nas, etc., you can hear the hip hop influence as he avoids the lovey-dovey nature of RnB for the most part. Between loving music, and not being able to express his emotions properly, he has turned to music for that outlet, as well as combat sports. He has won an International Sanshou title, as well as an East Coast Kickboxing title, while placing 4th at a National wrestling tournament. His competitive nature has caused a determination to excel in anything he takes up and music is no exception.
