Vinnie Vidal: Changing the Hip Hop Genre

Published

on

The Hip Hop and Rap genre for many seems to have become repetitive and lacking in originality. However, newcomer Vinnie Vidal is bringing a shift to the hip hop genre with his custom composed sounds and uncompromising integrity. Being taught by some of the greatest people in the music industry, Vinnie Vidal’s versatility is unmatched.

The singer, songwriter, and composer is gaining momentum and attention within the Hip Hop and Rap music genre with his unique sound and versatility. Vidal released his first single in February 2020 and has since produced 17 more singles.   He brings a shift to the hip hop genre with his custom composed sounds and uncompromising integrity.  Vidal’s distinctive sound is an infused Eastern flavor blended into a modern Western sound while integrating jazzy instrumentals into rap, such as a saxophone.

Vidal started his love affair with music at age 8 and composed and directed for a church choir at age 14. He makes his beats from scratch, writes the music, sings, and raps. Vidal developed a team and label,  Royal Play Records, which provides  consistently high-quality music.  His mission is to produce music that brings self-awareness to the listener while being infused with positivity and the power to heal the mind.  Vidal’s compositions focus on high quality classical mixes, rather than the traditional low frequency and destructive vibes.  Vidal believes in bringing trendy, entertaining music to the table without the profanity, sexual exploitation, violence and social injustice currently portrayed in mainstream music and media. 

Hailing from Baghdad but now residing in Canada, Vidal is a testament  to the rise of independent artistry, self-publishing and promotion over the traditional route. Vidal also explains how he understands what it takes to make quality music and which instruments are currently not being showcased. He aims to broaden the genre listening experience by infusing these sounds in his custom made beats.  

Vidal advises up and coming artists to take  a little bit of information from everyone because there is always something to be learned from everyone.  He explains that no one will see your vision clearer than yourself or hustle harder than you.  If you rely on others for validation you are setting yourself up for failure.  

“Short cuts make long delays” from J..R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring  is one of Vidal’s favorite quotes. He says “I love this quote because you really have to be willing to do the work. Many people want instant results with no hard work. It’s the turtle that wins the race!”

How Family Influenced Earl Chang, AKA Change, To Get Started In Music

Published

on

To some extent, family influences certain parts of our lives such as our interests or even what we want to be in the future. 

Earl Chang, better known as the artist Change, knows how powerful family influence can be as it was the one that led him to start a career in the music industry. 

Born in 1988 in the Bronx, New York, Change grew up playing basketball had a heavy music influence from his father and uncles. 

“I was always around music at a young age. My uncle used to have a mic and like 1,000 massive speakers in his garage with a PA system and he’d go down there and play old reggae music and sing, dance and rap over them! There was something about watching them with the mic in there that grabbed me and never let go,” Change said.  

Now, he pursued his passion which allows him to do what he loves while creating a legacy of his own in music.  

Getting Introduced To Music 

When Change moved to New Jersey at a young age, he met Jmac, the friend who introduced him to recording music. They used to record on a computer with the microphone set up between the speakers. But now, he owns a recording studio in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. 

“I shoot music videos, engineer,  and, most importantly, remain an artist! I like to be in the studio a lot I feel like it’s home and that’s in any studio I’m comfortable I’m ready to work at any time,” Change said. 

Change is the kind of artist to make sure that his music is original and distinct from the others out there. 

In 2017, Change got together with his group, SGS the Movement. Since then, they have dropped a few projects together and a few solo projects. Change also recently signed to Mulla Gang the label under a production and management deal owned by Mack Mulla 

Putting In The Work 

At present, Change is working on his second EP titled “Never Too Late” which he plans on dropping at the end of the summer. 

He also just released a single titled “Mami” with Core from his group, SGS the Movement, and has just been featured on Mack Mulla’s latest single “Hater.” 

“My favorite part of making music is performing it! I think that’s why I enjoy making music and the opportunity to perform it and touch the people that are in the crowd make that connection,” Change said.

How Joseph Royal Continues To Improve As An Artist And Performer

Published

on

Originally a YouTuber who has gained 100,000 followers in a span of two years through videos that feature his reactions, challenges, vlogs, and comedic shorts, Joseph Royal eventually changed his career path to create music where he tells stories of love, loss, and laughter for his audience to connect with. 

“I am a really good storyteller. And that is in telling stories through music, telling stories through content, or telling stories through acting,” he said. 

But putting out content isn’t the only thing that keeps Joseph busy. As an artist and performer, he’s also working on improving himself so that he can continue to do what he loves and feel fulfilled while doing so. 

Learning From People 

“The best advice for somebody who wants to grow in any area of their life would be to learn from people who have done it before you, make sure you compare yourself to yourself and take it one step at a time,” Joseph said. 

When it comes to the people who’ve done it before him, Joseph draws inspiration from artists like Pharrell Williams, Lenny Kravitz, and Kanye West. 

“Seeing how they were so different than most African-Americans Iʼve saw and how they pushed boundaries like creating fashion trends that people would find weird than copy really inspired me to be myself,” he said. 

And when it comes to learning from himself to make himself better, the YouTuber turned artist continues to set the bar higher using thought-provoking lyrics and great song arrangements. 

His approach to music is more direct and personal, often echoing the sound and feel of great acts from the past and the present. 

Looking Within Himself 

Being an artist and content creator isn’t as easy as it seems. It requires a person to be creative and authentic so they can stand out from the others in the industry. 

At times, this pressure can lead to stress and burnout. But Joseph has a way of dealing with this circumstance. 

“I recommend always to sit and meditate. If the outside world is causing you to be burnt out, look within and find where your fire comes from. Also by looking within you can ask yourself how you got to the point of being burnt out,” he said. 

Keeping himself in check and prepared to carry out his responsibilities will not only make Joseph a good artist, but it will also help him in achieving his goal of winning life and not having any regrets in the end.
