He’s one of the hardest working men in show business spreading positive vibes to everyone that has the pleasure of seeing him perform.

Enter VIGALANTY, a talented, dynamic, influential independent artist and lyricist from Miami, Florida, with serious mic skills, a mature ear, and new-school sensibility.

His plight to reach the top of the charts might be the story of how Hip Hop got real for independent artists in South Florida in 2016 as Vigalanty emerges from the sideline taking all the punches and blows it takes to survive.
“I grew up not knowing my father and only had my momma to lean on. I learned how to become Independent as an adolescent, however, I turned to the streets which only made me harder until I got sentenced to 7 years in Florida State Prison.

I took all of the experiences in my life and spoke about it through my music. So now you guys can really feel me…ALL my Blood, sweat, and tears.” – CHOZEN
