An artist who grows from his hardships and makes the best that he can from his losses, Badboy VT is expressing himself in ways that so many are simply unable to do. This artist is always showing off what he can do as a lyricist and freestyle rapper, with two new songs recently released and so much more on the way. His latest projects have been the songs “Not Innocent” and “So Amazing”, each of which tell their own story and allude to something honest and intensely relatable.
VT’s music gets directly into concepts that are personal and important to him. In his song “Not Innocent” he discusses issues that he’s faced and the ways that he has worked to overcome them. “This song is about the way I grew up, where I came from and what my ancestors did to get me where I am right now. We came from nothing and were forced to do a lot of things because of that.” VT’s upbringing in Chicago proved to have many obstacles to keep him off of the right track. Because of everything he had to do to survive, he has to some extent lost his innocence. “I’m not innocent in a lot of ways, but on the inside, without all of this struggle, I am.” This song tells VT’s story in an extremely personal way, much like all of his music.
Coming from so much hardship has made VT into who he is today, from losing so many friends and family members to gun violence, to experiencing incarceration and so much more. Despite all of that, he is still able to create amazing tracks. His other recent release, “So Amazing” talks about how helping a friend turns into an unexpected interest in his lady. “It’s about me being with a woman I’m not supposed to be with and even though we’re not supposed to be together, she gives off this great energy and I just have to stay focused on myself.” Not only is this track relatable to so many who have experienced similar situations, it is simply a great song to have on your playlist.
Overall, VT’s music has a simple message, “No matter what is going on now, better things are in your future.” If you stay focused on the good things in your life then good things will come to you.
On top of having two amazing tracks already out, VT is hard at work with a future EP dedicated to the fallen angels in his life, including his grandmother, his friends and his cousin, a boxer named Ed Badboy Brown who inspired him to get serious about music and was the inspiration for his own stage name. He will also be continuing to give back to his community and the people around him, teaching his own children what it means to be a part of something bigger.
