Jay Vinchi is an inventive, uncompromising and utterly competent rapper.
Jay Vinchi is a young old Hip Hop artist who began creating at the age of 13, spending his time perfecting his skills and finding himself as an artist. Over the course of the next few years, he released several small scale projects to a limited but growing audience. At the age of 18, he was contacted by a highly prestigious artist development firm and has been working professionally under his own accredited record label “Young Menace Records”. His debut mixtape “Reality” and the single “Everything”, were released in the fall of 2014 and his debut EP is slated for a 2015 release.
Though hip-hop, soul, jazz and some avand-garde electronic sampling makes for an interesting melding, the great thing for me is that Jay Vinchi’s music doesn’t turn into some silly hybrid. The fact that he understands and feels the various productions on “Reality” comes shining through. The music develops and changes, flows in and out of itself and keeps mutating throughout, without getting pretentious, and all the while Jay Vinchi’s rhyme scheme manages to stay afloat of the beats.
The beats and rapping are great, and the arrangements and lyrical focus are revolutionary. This mixtape perfectly addresses an idea that seems lost these days in the world of mainstream rap: the connection between organic, real sounding beats and inventive hip hop.
Not only are the lyrics as good as the very best but the music and background tracks are all sublime stuff, making the hairs prick up on the back of your neck. What you will find on “Reality” is an extremely lyrically gifted artist, laying down metaphors verse after verse filled with with substance. And If you’re one who feels the music too, then this is something that you will like; very experimental and extremely original, thanks to host of talented producers from, Smochi, Peet, Krischin and SnowBtz, to The Official Tone, KrewHL, LibertinemMusic, Hucci, 3Point and CMR.
Nobody should expect anything short of phenomenal with this collaborative effort that is sure to make your jaw drop in awe. There are some very infectious tracks on this mixtape, but I’m not going to mention any so as not to unfairly penalize the others. It’s so easy for you to check out the 13 tracks, included here, for yourself.
Jay Vinchi is an inventive, uncompromising and utterly competent rapper. Regardless of your favorite hip hop or rap subgenre, you should find “Reality” enthralling and worthy of your time. There really isn’t anything else out there now that sounds quite like this.
