I had the esteemed opportunity to speak to one of South Florida's dopest independent artists on the rise...SIRIUS BLAC...to get a statement regarding his new found success in the uprising independent music market that has taken metro Miami by a storm. Sirius hasn't had much spare time as he tours around Florida performing and spending countless hours in the studio working on his next much-anticipated project. He's one of the hardest working men in show business spreading positive vibes to everyone that has the pleasure of seeing him perform. Sirius has definitely left his mark and imprint and we look forward to seeing what he does next.
As the line between independent and mainstream music continues to blur with the coming of each new generation, Hip Hop purists with underground loyalty keep searching for the next rapper to surface with an allegiance to the realness. Enter VIGALANTY, a talented, dynamic, influential independent artist and lyricist from Miami, Florida, with serious mic skills, a mature ear, and new-school sensibility. VIGALANTY's story is not one of the average American rapper. Unlike most new rap stars, he is humbled, composed, mature, and palpably aware of how far he came within the ever-changing music industry. 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. Inside, I started writing songs about everything that was going on in my life. I was going through some thangs so I made a change to better my life. 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
