Lord Vnchy Debuts on SpitFireHipHop with his ‘Eminent: 002A_0316’ EP.
VNCHYÂ describesÂ EminentÂ as a â€œnostalgic journey of the soulâ€ with the stated purpose to â€œuplift the mind and the body.â€ If this sounds like a lot, check the musicâ€”brooding, moody, at times even gloomy. Harmony was something VNCHYÂ didnâ€™t see a lot of growing up. â€œWithin the Congo thereâ€™s been constant turmoil and war,â€ he says.
“MyÂ grandfather was involved with the rebellion against the dictator,” says VNCHY. â€œThereâ€™s so much turbulence within the country, so my family fled from the war.
On the new project,Â tracks like â€œBlack Diabloâ€ reflect some of the lessons learned during the artistâ€™s journey from Congo to Toronto.Â â€œI believe there is a standard out there thatâ€™s put upon us. Whether youâ€™re being marginalized because of your dreams or because of your ethnicity or where youâ€™re from, there is a diablo, a power that weâ€™re all fighting. Iâ€™m crazyÂ about self-actualization and you taking the responsibility upon yourself. My music always promotes doing it for yourself and for the people that you love.â€
